The Dirt: Kalispels to open second Fatburger
The Kalispel Tribe will open a Fatburger food franchise in the fall at the Five Mile Shopping Center, 1902 W. Francis Ave.
The restaurant will span about 2,000 square feet at the center, located at Francis and Ash Street.
It will be the tribe’s second Fatburger franchise. The first opened in May 2009 at Northern Quest Resort and Casino.
Spokane’s Kiemle & Hagood Co. helped broker the arrangement for the tribe. The landlord is Spokane-based Stejer Development.
Based in Santa Monica, Calif., the Fatburger food chain uses the slogan “the Last Great Hamburger Stand.”
