Fat Bastard Burrito Is Opening In St. John’s
The team behind Mary Brown’s Chicken is bringing an entirely new dining experience to St. John’s. Introducing Fat Bastard Burrito – the Ontario-born burrito, quesadilla and taco chain that keeps it fun and fresh. Set to open on Fri, July 21 at 5 p.m., at 336 Water St. (corner of Water St. and Adelaide St.) in the heart of downtown St. John’s, the restaurant is the brand’s first location outside of Ontario.
To celebrate the opening, Fat Bastard Burrito will be giving out limited-edition T-shirts to the first 100 customers! The T-shirt design reflects the brand’s playful and edgy personality, with graphic text that reads, “Enjoy a burrito and GTFO.”
Fat Bastard Burrito is proud to open in St. John’s as the city is home of the beloved Mary Brown’s Chicken, whose parent company, MBI Brands Inc., acquired Fat Bastard Burrito last summer. Together they are now one of the largest privately held quick-service restaurant companies in Canada. The location is a natural fit for introducing the brand to the Newfoundland and Labrador market.
“We are thrilled to be expanding outside of Ontario and we couldn’t think of a better market to start than the home of Mary Brown’s Chicken,” said Gregory Roberts, owner of MBI Brands Inc. “We see this as an essential step toward national expansion and can’t wait to share our menu with the rest of Canada.“
Founded in 2010 with a mission to take the Toronto burrito scene to the next level, Fat Bastard Burrito began by creating its own unique flavours and toppings (including noodles!). Their in-house preparation, combined with traditional cooking methods at the store level, makes menu offerings cleaner, fresher, healthier and loaded with flavour. The brand offers eight proteins, 12 toppings, eight sauces, and up to three tortilla options (white, whole wheat & gluten-friendly). This means millions of customizable options to suit any taste! Fat Bastard Burrito is excited to spice things up and bring big taste to the East Coast with mouth watering crave-worthy burritos, quesadillas, tacos and loaded waffle fries.
“We look forward to introducing Fat Bastard Burrito to the St. John’s Community, where we have a strong community of Mary Brown’s Chicken fans. We’re excited to see how our customers respond to Fat Bastard Burrito, we’re confident they will love it,” said Gregory Roberts, owner of MBI Brands Inc.
