Fuddruckers is the not so fast food, fast-casual hamburger restaurant with the World’s Greatest Hamburger.
Café Venture Company was started in 1987, as a franchisee of Fuddruckers. In November 2007, a group led by Mickey Rogers and Daniel Stanton from West Texas, purchased the company. Through the purchase of the company, seven restaurants were acquired in the following locations: Beaumont, Midland, Temple, Killeen, Waco, and Lubbock. The home office was moved from Belton, TX to Lubbock, TX in December of 2007.
In 2008, Café Venture built the location in the Odessa mall and the end of 2009 acquired the Corpus Christi, TX location, bringing the total to nine Fuddruckers across Texas. During this time a special focus was made on developing catering across each store and the state of Texas.
