A Brief History

Fuddruckers was originally started out as Freddie Fuddruckers in 1979 by Philip Romano. Philip believed that no one had created the best burger yet and he took it upon himself to create “the world’s best burger”. The main concept of the restaurant was to provide customers with large hamburgers that were topped with fresh sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and cheese sauce.

Once the chain entered the California market it began competing against high end fast food restaurants. On numerous occasions it won awards for best burger in the area and quickly took over the market space. With the overwhelming success in California and Texas Philip decided to expand again. The company was at nearly 150 chains before Phillip left the company to  explore other business opportunities.
