COMMERCE, Ga., Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuddruckers is driving expansion in Georgia through a new franchise agreement with TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands. Today, the partnership unveils a new restaurant within a bustling truck stop and convenience center at 30732 Highway 441 South in close proximity to the Tanger Outlet center and Atlanta Dragway. The seventh Georgia location for the Texas-based heritage brand, the Commerce site offers both table and lounge seating for 101 guests, plus décor that references Fuddruckers' classic, Americana origins.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "We're thrilled to announce this partnership with a landmark company whose long and storied history is so closely tied to road travel in America. Not only is this location the perfect pit stop for exploring area attractions, but it also provides weary drivers with a welcoming and comfortable option to fuel and rest up while filling up on a delicious meal."
Fuddruckers aims to trump Commerce area culinary candidates on President's Day with a February 15 post-opening feature. Enjoy any half-pound specialty burger for a Lincoln ($5) and add on wedges or sweet potato fries for a Washington ($1) with any beverage purchase. Taste what makes this country great with a deal that won't bust the budget.
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilled-to-order burgers feature always fresh and never frozen, 100% USDA premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives. Delicious, sesame-topped buns are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
And while burgers are the signature, the engaging menu offers variety for many tastes with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads. No matter what they choose, customers can customize their meal with a trip to the legendary Build Your Own produce bar, which features fantastic fixings like sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and classic cheese sauce.
