In July of 2020, we reported that the Brookfield location of Fuddruckers, the last remaining Wisconsin location, had shuttered.

Nearly four years later, customers are invited to pay a final visit to the restaurant at 16065 W. Bluemound Rd. – not to eat burgers, but to take advantage of the opportunity to own a piece of the iconic brand.

A liquidation sale headed up by Best Estate Services is slated to take place Thursday, Feb. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 23 through Tuesday, Feb. 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale is open to the public and presents an opportunity for fans, collectors and industry personnel to purchase a variety of items from the restaurant.

Items will include decor (including coveted collectibles like replica gas pumps, neon signs and Breweriana celebrating Wisconsin’s rich beer heritage).
