Big burger chain Fuddruckers bolsters its presence in Texas with malls

A popular burger chain has announced a new partnership that will expand its footprint across Texas and beyond. Fuddruckers has partnered with Brookfield Properties to open 10 new mall locations in Texas and four other states. Additionally, the company launched shadow kitchens to capture more delivery and takeout activity.

In Houston, the new Fuddruckers will open at Willowbrook Mall in Cypress. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex will add three new locations at Hulen Mall (Fort Worth), Town East Mall (Mesquite) and The Parks Mall (Arlington). Additionally, Fuddruckers will open in the North Star mall in San Antonio. New malls will also debut in Alabama, California, Georgia and North Carolina.

In addition to these mall outposts, the restaurant will expand its presence in the ghost kitchen. Fuddruckers is part of Kitchen United MIX, a ghost kitchen that operates out of a Kroger in The Heights. The restaurant will open additional ghost kitchen locations in Plano, Frisco and Austin.

Although they lack the seating and design elements of Fuddruckers’ independent locations, they serve the same familiar mix of burgers, sides, and chicken sandwiches. The restaurant also recently launched a Beyond Plant-Based Burger and Beyond Chicken Tenders.

Formerly a member of Luby’s Restaurants, Black Titan Franchise Systems LLC purchased Fuddruckers in 2021. The company operates more than 92 locations nationwide.

“We are thrilled to partner with Brookfield Properties, expand our geographic footprint across the country and make Fuddruckers accessible to even more guests,” CEO Nicholas Perkins said in a statement. “These new locations will continue to expand our customer base, create new jobs and showcase our ‘world’s best burgers’.”
