Fatburger, a Canadian owned custom-made burger restaurant, opened in Courtney, B.C. earlier in September.
B.C. restaurateur Frank Di Benedetto said fans of the brand’s award-winning burgers are now able to indulge their taste buds at the Ryan Road location, the third Fatburger to open on Vancouver Island.
“We are passionate about quality, food, and service,” said Mr. Di Benedetto. “We are excited to be serving great tasting Fatburger favourites, made fresh with top quality ingredients to the Courtney community.”
Di Benedetto, a B.C. Restaurant Hall of Fame Alumni and owner of Fatburger & Ricky’s All Day Grill, started the company in Canada 15 years ago, with the vision of bringing home-style cooked burgers, made with traditional cooking methods, to local communities.
The new Fatburger location is adjacent to Ricky’s All Day Grill, which has been serving the Courtney community for more than 26 years. Local Ricky’s franchisees Darrel Crawford and Gary Marnewick own and operate the Fatburger as well.
