BOZEMAN, Mont. - Nov. 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers is making a much-anticipated comeback to Bozeman and Gallatin Valley Mall today with regionally-based franchisee, Russ Klare. Klare, the owner of a popular Fuddruckers in Missoula, has revealed a renovation that aims to make the fast casual eatery at 2905 W. Main Street a standout for the Texas heritage brand.
In addition to transforming the 5,000-square-foot space with an engaging design scheme, which references Fuddruckers' classic, Americana origins, the 140-seat restaurant features a first-of-its-kind tap room for the brand. A showcase for locally produced craft beers, the annex offers a growler filling station for takeaway. Diners also have the option of dining on a covered patio while sipping on a signature huckleberry shake, a menu offering unique to the site.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "We're thrilled to be returning to Bozeman with a new franchisee dedicated to creating a truly special experience for guests. As many of our fans tell us, nothing pairs better with a hot off the grill Fuddruckers burger than a cold craft beer or shake."
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.
