October 14, 2016 // Franchising.com // Houston, TX – Fuddruckers, home of the “World’s Greatest Hamburgers”, is increasing its presence in the Dominican Republic and its capital city of Santo Domingo in partnership with Giancarlo Bonarelli of Franchise Management Group LTD. Based on the success of a 3,500-square-foot flagship restaurant in the upscale Galeria 360 mall, the team is putting the finishing touches on a new Fuddruckers Express location – the Caribbean’s first – in the same retail complex, which features more than 120 stores and restaurants plus a large movie theater. The opening for the mall’s food court site is slated for October 10.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer, “Since joining forces with Franchise Management Group LTD for our 2014 debut in the Dominican Republic, we’ve been thrilled with their enthusiasm, brand loyalty, high standards and market expertise. We look forward to much success ahead for them as they continue to win over customers in the Caribbean.”
Fuddruckers Express will offer diners a curated and market-tailored menu of burgers, fries, hand breaded onion rings and chicken tenders, salads, wraps, plus sweet treats ranging from fresh cookies to brownies.
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilledto-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.
