"It's July, but we can't wait for football season to start so we can cheer on our Houston Texans," said Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer. "Whichever burger our guests choose, nothing goes better with a Texans game than a hot, juicy, delicious Fuddruckers burger."
Ongoing components of the Fuddruckers and Houston Texans partnership will include special offers for Houston Texans season ticket holders, meet and greets with cheerleaders and team staff, as well as brand involvement in the Houston Texans Youth Football Showcase League.
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilled-to-order burgers feature always fresh and never frozen, 100% USDA premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives. Delicious, sesame-topped buns are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
And while burgers are the signature, the engaging menu offers variety for many tastes with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads. No matter what they choose, customers can customize their meal with a trip to the legendary Build Your Own produce bar, which features fantastic fixings like sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and classic cheese sauce.
