The strategy for seeking and acquiring prime locations in the primary focus markets, the market areas and specific locations within the same area have been predicated on the following location parameters:


1. In-line, end-cap or freestanding locations (1,500–2,300 square feet + patio) where the market is strong enough to support a successful Fatburger unit. In high density-markets, the size of the restaurant will vary to meet market-specific conditions. In-line locations will be considered where visibility, access, parking and signage offset the impact of being surrounded by other tenants. Drive-thru locations shall be evaluated on a location-by-location basis. The landlord will be expected to provide Fatburger demised premises, a vanilla shell, plus a contribution or tenant improvement upgrades consistent with Fatburger tenant improvement requirements which are currently valued at approximately $20.00 per sq. ft.

2. Kiosk or food court locations of 800–1,500 square feet where the venue (regional malls, casino, office building, airport, office corridors, universities, etc.) qualifies under Fatburger’s criteria and no other opportunities are available.

3. Sharing of freestanding locations with compatible co-tenant, including video stores, bookstores, cellular phone stores, florists, coffee houses, juice concepts and high quality quick-service restaurants (Asian, Italian, pizza or sandwich concepts) where there are synergies and we can mutually benefit from traffic generators in the adjacent retail market.

4. Specialty centers, super-store centers or entertainment-oriented commercial/retail centers with anchor sales of $50 million+ a year or mixed-use entertainment, retail and restaurants.

5. The landlord takes control of a previously occupied location, which qualifies under Fatburger site criteria, and restructures a new deal to accommodate the new Fatburger location.

6. In certain circumstances, the only available option for market entry may require the purchase and conversion of an existing compatible restaurant facility or the conversion of the same to a Fatburger restaurant. (In select markets)

7. In an international setting, a franchisee in concert with the franchisor will adjust these parameters as appropriate for the local market.
