PANAMA CITY, Panama - Feb. 21, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers, an iconic, Texas-born hospitality brand, debuted its third restaurant in Panama City yesterday with franchise partner Isthmus Food Service, S. A. Located in the Vía Centenario, the approximately 3,200-square-foot eatery with terrace is ideally situated in AltaPlaza Mall, a shopping, dining and entertainment destination unveiled last spring. Isthmus Food Service, S. A. plans to develop five more Fuddruckers locations in Panama.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer, "We're fortunate to have an ideal partner in Isthmus Food Service, S. A., which has not only helped us to secure prime sites in this country, but also establish strong relationships with Panamanian diners, who have quickly become fans of our efficient and welcoming service, delicious menus offerings and dynamic ambience."
Amidst a backdrop that references its classic American origins, Fuddruckers' grilled-to-order burgers feature premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives, plus sesame-topped buns with the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
And while beef and exotic meat burgers are a Fuddruckers signature, the menu at AltaPlaza will offer variety for many tastes with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads, as well as dishes created specifically for the location, including Churrasco and vegetarian burgers.
No matter what they choose, customers can customize their meal with a trip to the legendary Build Your Own produce bar.
