FAT Brands Inc., parent company of Hurricane Grill & Wings and eight other restaurant concepts, announced the opening of Hurricane Grill & Wings in Chula Vista. This marks the restaurant brand’s first location in California and its first fast casual restaurant concept nationwide.

“We are excited to expand fan-favorite Hurricane Grill & Wings into the California market,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “While we have had great success with our full-serve model, we see a huge appetite and demand for a fast-casual experience as well with our consumer base. Over the last several years, Chula Vista has evolved into a bustling city and we are confident that our wing concept will be received well by locals.”

Founded in 1995, Hurricane Grill & Wings offers jumbo, fresh wings paired with signature sauces, rubs, and glazes with a diverse menu featuring fan-favorite comfort food such as burgers, tacos and fries. The Chula Vista location is equipped with a full bar as well as a large patio area to complete the dining experience.

This location will also serve as a virtual restaurant for California favorite Fatburger, known for its delicious, made-to-order burgers. This virtual component will allow customers to order from a separate Fatburger menu offered only via third-party delivery service providers.

The Chula Vista Hurricane Grill & Wings is located at 2040 Birch Road, M101, Chula Vista, CA 91915; initial store hours will be 11 am-10 pm daily.
