Fazoli’s Continues 2018 Development Momentum With New Openings and Successful Market Relaunches

Fazoli’s, America’s largest elevated QSR Italian chain, announced a number of momentous achievements to close out the first half of the year. By mid-year, the company successfully opened over seven new restaurants, with plans to open up to an additional five locations by the end of the year - setting the brand up to achieve its highest number of openings in nearly 10 years. This continued surge in development has also helped the brand successfully reenter three markets where it previously operated, since the beginning of the year, including Columbus, GA, Plant City, FL and Poplar Bluff, MO.

Fazoli’s was able to successfully return to these three markets after several years, by offering freshly prepared Italian fare at a reasonable cost and reestablishing itself as a leader in the elevated quick service Italian space. Strong brand loyalty and customer appeal have resulted in exceptional and sustained sales performance in each of these newly reopened markets. In addition to reestablishing a presence in these key cities, Fazoli’s achieved its two highest grand opening weeks in company history with its openings in Hazard, KY and Columbus, GA, surpassing $100,000 and $95,000 in grand opening sales, respectively.

Furthermore, Fazoli’s has continued its remodel initiative after successfully revamping nine of its locations in 2017 and observing sustained success in each of those restaurants.

Fazoli's is currently seeking single- and multi-unit operators to join its growing, franchise network. Incentives are also available for new franchisees looking to grow their portfolios with the brand. For more information, www.ownafazolis.com.
