Fatburger has inked an agreement with The Riese Organization to bring the brand to New York City and surrounding areas. The first location will open in the Murray Hill neighborhood in the Spring of 2013.

The Riese Organization, which has more than 70 years' experience running more than 75 restaurants across the city including TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut and KFC, will develop and operate multiple Fatburger locations across Manhattan, as well as the counties of Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, Nassau and Suffolk.

"We are confident that The Riese Organization will carry our brand to success in the New York City market," said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of Fatburger. "We waited to find the right franchise partner to strategically enter this historically difficult restaurant market and believe we have found it in The Riese Organization. They are legendary operators and we are delighted to have them as partners. We look forward to bringing our delicious burgers, which have been a staple in Hollywood as well as elsewhere on the West Coast, to New Yorkers."

Fatburger currently has more than 140 locations across the United States, Canada, Asia and the Middle East.
