Fatz is a chain of casual dining restaurants, mainly in the Southeastern part of the US. Founded by Bill Burton and Jimmy Rogers, the original location was a converted peach storage shed in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Today, the company has 35 locations in 5 states.
The company usually places their restaurants in small towns, avoiding the competition found in large cities. Food is the typical American cuisine, with hamburgers, chicken, ribs, seafood, and pasta. A few locations also offer a salad bar. The company uses trans-fat free oils and specializes in baked, not fried, chicken. Fatz also offers a special menu for other dietary needs.
There was a rumor that the company was going out of business in early January 2019, but these were rumors and nothing more.
Fatz is a subsidiary of Cafe Enterprises, Inc., and has headquarters in Taylors, South Carolina.
