Fatz is a regional casual dining restaurant chain with locations in the Southeastern United States. It is operated by Cafe Enterprises, Inc., with headquarters in Taylors, South Carolina.
The first Fatz opened November 1988 in a converted peach shed in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Since inception, it was known as Fatz Cafe. In 2017, the chain rebranded to become Fatz Southern Kitchen. As of 2017, the chain has 43 locations in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. Fatz generally avoids placing locations in large cities; most locations are in small cities or suburban areas.
Fatz sponsors the Clemson Tigers, the South Carolina Gamecocks, and the Georgia Bulldogs. Fatz in Shelby, North Carolina sponsors Gardner–Webb Runnin' Bulldogs' Club Hospitality Area during all Home Football and Men’s Basketball games. Besides contribution from the chain to the communities in which the company operates, individual location operations also contribute to local causes.
