Fuddruckers expands presence in Puerto Rico

Fuddruckers has expanded its presence in Puerto Rico this week by opening a new restaurant in Plaza Sultana Shopping Center in Mayagüez. The new 3,546-square-foot restaurant has seating for 102 guests and brings the 30-year-old fast casual chain's Caribbean footprint to five stores.  The restaurant is expected to create 60 new jobs.

As with new restaurants on the mainland, the interior showcases Fuddruckers' recently introduced interior scheme that pays homage to the Texas-born brand's signature roadhouse look, while streamlining the popular design for today's more sophisticated tastes.

Fuddruckers' menu includes hand breaded onion rings and sesame-topped buns that are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Puerto Rican diners can enjoy a regionally-inspired Boricua Burger made with amarillos (sweet plantain) which they can then customize at the chain’s Build Your Own produce bar, offering an array of fixings, including sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and Fuddruckers cheese sauce.

Luby's Fuddruckers Restaurants, the chain’s parent company, operates restaurants under the brands Luby's and Fuddruckers and provides foodservice management through its Luby's Culinary Services division.  The company-operated restaurants include 93 cafeterias, 58 Fuddruckers restaurants and four other non-core restaurants.  Its 93 Luby's restaurants are located throughout Texas and other states. Its Fuddruckers restaurants include 58 company-operated locations and 121 franchises across the United States (including Puerto Rico) and Canada.  Luby's Culinary Services provides foodservice management to 21 sites consisting of healthcare, higher education and corporate dining locations.
