September 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // TERRE HAUTE, IN – Fuddruckers, a Texas-based heritage brand, will unveil its first Indiana location on September 29 at 3830 S. US Highway 41 in Terre Haute. The fast casual restaurant encompasses 7,000 square feet with interior seating for 176 and a patio that can accommodate up to 44 guests. The free-standing home for the “World’s Greatest Hamburgers” is ideally situated in close proximity to the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds, Rea Park Golf Course, Terre Haute Regional Hospital and Rea Park Golf Course.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby’s, Inc., “We’re excited to bring the Fuddruckers brand to Indiana and have been greatly appreciative of the warm welcome we’ve been given by the Terre Haute community, which will enjoy the first bite of our hot and juicy burgers and premium fare.”
An engaging design scheme, which references Fuddruckers’ classic, Americana origins, sets an inviting backdrop for a family gathering, work lunch or date night. The restaurant is also geared to sports fans with 13 TVs providing a great view of every game.
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.
