Fatburger is Now Serving Dairy-Free Cheese, Vegan Shakes, and More


Last updated January 2021! After a successful test run in their hometown of Los Angeles, Fatburger expanded their nationwide menu to include four Vegan Shakes, Dairy-Free Cheese, and a 100% Plant Based Cheeseburger. In fact, customers can now order Daiya Cheddar-Style Slices on a dairy-free burger, sandwich, or fries. Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands, the parent company of Fatburger, had the following to say about these additions.

We love incorporating today’s trends with Fatburger’s traditional fare so consumers can enjoy the Fatburger they know and love, with a dairy-free twist. With the addition of the Daiya Slices to our ever-growing dairy-free menu we are able to reach a larger fan base, and we can’t wait to see how consumers across the country react to our new plant-based offerings.
