First Year of Giving Supports 43 Organizations Across FAT Brands’ Communities

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FAT (Fresh. Authentic. Tasty.) Brands Inc., a leading global franchising company that owns restaurant brands including Johnny Rockets, Fatburger, Round Table Pizza, Twin Peaks, Fazoli’s, and 13 other concepts, is pleased to announce the impact FAT Brands Foundation had in its local communities during its first year of giving. In 2023, over $250,000 was awarded to 43 local non-profits across 19 states and Washington D.C.

The foundation’s impact was widespread, standing behind causes such as food insecurity, health, education, youth development, the arts, and more. Notably, the foundation supported the critical work of non-profits in FAT Brands’ communities, including organizations tied to the fires in Maui, Hawaii, and the tragedy in Allen, Texas.

“We are proud of not only getting the foundation off the ground in 2023, but also doubling down on our commitment to serve by providing funding and physical volunteers for boots-on-the-ground work in various FAT Brands’ communities,” said Jessica Wiederhorn, President of FAT Brands Foundation. “This year was just the beginning and we have built a strong framework – supporting the unique and important work of 43 organizations. We look forward to bringing to life even more opportunities – through funding and volunteer work – in the coming years.”

Looking to 2024, the foundation is committed to continuing its work supporting local non-profits that provide essential programs to help communities and families thrive.
