Fat Burger Pakistan, an American fast food chain with presence in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, is currently being shamed by its developer for allegedly not paying the dues.
Instead of waiting any further, developers have downed the website with a note that reads, “FATBURGER DOES NOT RESPECT THE WORK WE DO. WAITING FOR PAYMENT – ALMOST 2 YEARS”.
We reached out to FatBurger Pakistan to know their side of the story and they said that they don’t have any issues with the developers.
This is not the first time that developers, hosting companies have downed a website for non-payment.
With no legal binding, this is actually very usual in Pakistan that companies don’t pay their vendors or at the very least delay their payments, by months if not years.
This frustration, at times, reaches a level when software houses, agencies or vendors decide to publicly shame their clients, without thinking of the consequences.
It appears one such instance happened today and FatBurger — an otherwise reputable brand — was disgraced by their developers for not paying their hard earned dues.
FatBurger Pakistan has apparently taken the control of their website but their data isn’t online as of yet. Right now, we assume, they are updating their website with back-ups.
This actually means that they have decided not to pay developers for ever.
