Are Fazoli’s Drive-Throughs Coming To Detroit?
You heard it here! According to a recent article published by Michigan-based MLive.com, the Metro Detroit area might be in for a savory treat in the coming years.
As of now, Metro Detroit is lacking in the fast casual Italian food department, but Fazoli’s Vice President Doug Bostick is looking to change that for the better. Currently, there are Fazoli’s restaurants in central and western Michigan, but the Metro Detroit area remains unclaimed. While there are no official signed contracts to report, Bostick assured MLive.com that there’s a hefty five-unit deal being discussed behind the scenes. And even better – if opened, these new restaurants may even feature a drive-through!
Curious why we’re considering adding a drive-through?
According to Bostick, “thirty-five percent of business is through the drive-through.” Just think of all those potential guests we may be missing out on without one – we’re looking at all those working moms and dads out there! Getting dinner on the table after a long day is easier when it involves a drive-through service. Couple drive-through convenience with our fresh, Italian food and we have a winner.
So, what makes Fazoli’s a fantastic choice for Detroit?
For starters, look at the price point. “You can get a $6 or $7 plate of spaghetti that represents a $12 item elsewhere,” pointed out Bostick. And the best part is, “we don’t substitute quality for price.” Besides that, adding these five new restaurants will bring in five four-member management teams, and create jobs for about 50-60 employees per location.
The Fazoli’s family is excited about the possible opportunity to expand into the Metro Detroit area. As it stands, we’re operating Fazoli’s locations in 25 different states and plan to open 12 more confirmed locations in 2017 already.
