Fatburger patties Walmart: Fatburger, an international fast food chain, announced it is going to sell Fatburgers in more than 3,100 Walmart stores starting this June.
"Launching at Walmart marks the first time our classic burgers will be available to families across America, bringing Fatburger to a whole new generation of customers as well as offering customers who grew up with the brand a new way to enjoy their favorite burger," said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of Fatburger, in an announcement.
The company will be selling one-third lb. frozen burgers in a six-pack box for $7 to $8.
Wiederhorn said they'll have a higher fat content of about 30% since they're intended for barbecuing. The burgers sold in restaurants have a fat content of about 20%, he said.
A Fatburger burger with cheese in restaurants costs about $5.50.
Wal-Mart Stores, based in Bentonville, Ark., has more than 4,000 U.S. locations but said the Fatburger patties will be available in 3,100 stores. A Wal-Mart representative did not immediately know why the remainder of the stores wouldn't carry the items.
