LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NASDAQ: FAT. FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc. (“FAT Brands” or the “Company”), parent company of Fatburger, is proud to announce its latest menu addition, vegan milkshakes. Made with hand-scooped Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream, the new milkshakes topped with non-dairy whipped cream will debut at 12 Fatburger locations in Southern California on October 14th.
Fatburger’s new vegan milkshakes will be available in two flavors, vanilla and strawberry, and are available starting today at the Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, West Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Venice, Van Nuys, Wilshire, Redondo Beach, Carson, Santa Monic & Sepulveda, and Lincoln & Pico locations. This latest menu addition expands on Fatburger’s current vegan menu offerings, such as the Impossible Burger patty, and speak to the brand’s commitment of offering top-quality new items for customers of all dietary preferences to enjoy.
Hollywood's iconic Fatburger is best known for its mouthwatering, juicy burgers made famous by founder Lovie Yancey in Los Angeles more than 70 years ago. Each burger is made-to-order with traditional toppings along with delicious add-ons including bacon, egg, cheese, and onion rings. In addition to their iconic burgers, Fatburger offers perfectly crisp fries and hand-scooped milkshakes.
“Our existing vegan items have performed incredibly well with not only vegans, but existing Fatburger customers who are looking to try something new. We have no doubt our new Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream milkshake will follow the same trajectory,” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Like Fatburger, Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream is a Los Angeles institution. We are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with such a like-minded, local brand.”
