The owners of Scotland’s first Fatburger takeaway restaurant have revealed it will open in just two weeks time in Dundee.
Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express will open at 26-28 Reform Street on Tuesday January 22 at 11am.
The brand, which was established in southern California around 70 years ago, is expected to become a big hit with fast food fans from across the city and beyond.
Fatburger is being brought to Tayside by well-known local entrepreneurs, the Hayat family.
They were responsible for opening German Doner Kebab’s first Scottish branch in Dundee just metres up the road from Fatburger and say they are very excited to be adding another global brand to their portfolio.
Franchise owner Akky Hayat previously said: “We are thrilled to be bringing yet more sensational foreign food ﬂavours to Dundee.
“German Doner Kebab is now well-established and is a ﬁrm favourite among diners of all ages.
“Fatburger Buffalo offers an all-American treat as an alternative to what is currently available and we expect it to join GDK as a popular place to eat out in the town centre.”
To complement Fatburger’s menu, Buffalo’s Express offers hand-prepared, boneless and bone-in chicken wings and salads, with a choice of 13 different sauces ranging from mild to scorchin’.
It is billed as a fast-casual restaurant serving big burgers crafted specifically to each customer’s liking, with a legacy going back to 1952.
It is just the latest new business to open on Reform Street amid a resurgence in the once bustling thoroughfare.
Once one of the city’s most successful commercial streets — known as Dundee’s Savile Row — it had been forced to contend with a general trend away from high-street shopping and a series of notable closures leaving units empty.
By 2016, there were almost as many empty shopfronts as there were thriving businesses on the street and city planners faced serious questions over its future.
However, in the last few years Blend coffee shop, German Doner Kebab, Project Pizza, Asian fusion restaurant Dai Pai, and Japanese spot Su Sushi have all opened, breathing new life into the area,
