Could Fuddruckers be Coming Back to MoCo?
Fuddruckers franchisee Nicholas Perkins and his newly formed Black Titan Holdings group has reached an agreement to buy the restaurant chain for $18.5 million.
“We’re excited to be purchasing Fuddruckers and look forward to working with Fuddruckers’ many dedicated, highly capable franchisees to further build this brand. As a Fuddruckers franchisee, I have a vested interest in ensuring that all Fuddruckers franchisees have the resources, infrastructure, and operational and marketing support they need to maximize their return on investment. This strategic alignment, when combined with the fact that we sell the ‘World’s Greatest Hamburgers’, will ensure the long-term success of the brand and our franchisees.”, said Perkins.
The closest Fuddruckers location to Montgomery County right now is in Ashburn, VA.
Former MoCo locations included Rockville, Gaithersburg, and Downtown Silver Spring.
HU alumnus Nicholas Perkins is slated to acquire the Fuddruckers restaurant chain for an estimated $18.5 million, making him the first African American with 100% ownership of a national burger franchise. #BisonPride #BisonintheNews
