HOUSTON - Sept. 24, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers, a Texas-born heritage brand, unveiled its third location in Italy this week with Vinum et Alia, an established Italian franchisee that focuses on chains in the value-oriented, casual dining segment. The 5,500-square-foot, fast casual restaurant is ideally situated along the bustling Via Strada Statale dei Giovi in Casnate con Bernate, a municipality in the Province of Como.
The American-style interior, accommodating up to 250 guests, showcases a dynamic and playful design scheme, which emphasizes Fuddruckers' classic, roadhouse origins. The result is a festive and inviting backdrop that is ideal for a gathering of friends and family, business lunch or date night.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "Through our partnership with Vinum et Alia, we continue to expand our footprint in Italy while quickly earning fans throughout the country, who appreciate our unique brand and use of quality ingredients, including 100% fresh and never-frozen locally-sourced Italian beef, produced to our unique specifications."
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilled-to-order burgers are paired with delicious, sesame-topped buns, which 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 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 and dill pickles.
