STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. - Nov. 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers is mooring in Michigan. The Texas-based heritage brand debuts a new fast casual site in Sterling Heights today with franchisee Dean Antonis. The 7,000-square-foot restaurant at 13883 Lakeside Circle is the third Fuddruckers in partnership with AG Foods LLC.
Ideally situated on the perimeter of Lakeside Mall with easy access of Hall Road, it features seating for 240 in addition to an enclosed patio that can be utilized as a private party room for large groups. An engaging design scheme, which references Fuddruckers' classic, Americana origins, sets an inviting backdrop for a family gathering, work lunch or date night.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "We're excited to be enhancing our presence in Michigan with dedicated franchise partners like Dean Antonis, who has just signed a development deal on a fourth restaurant to follow Sterling Heights."
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.
