Fazoli’s Announces New Restaurants Coming to Florida and Georgia
We told you we were focusing on introducing the Fazoli’s brand into uncharted territories in 2017, and our latest franchise agreements are proof!
As of February, the Tampa and Atlanta metro areas have a new fast casual dining experience coming to town! Not one, not two, but three new Fazoli’s restaurants are in the works; one in Florida and two in Georgia. While the Tampa restaurant marks only the second franchise location in the Sunshine State, the two coming to Georgia are joining the existing Fazoli’s network, with longtime multi-unit franchisees who have seen great success with their restaurants so far.
Fazoli’s president and CEO Carl Howard had a few encouraging words to share his excitement:
“Signing these new franchise agreements adds more fuel to the incredible fire the Fazoli’s concept is experiencing across the country… It’s exciting to welcome a new group into the family and see the ongoing growth of our current franchisees.”
The Tampa location will be owned and managed by Terri Suttle, Livingston Chatman and Patrick Smith of S.C.S. Hospitality Group, who are thrilled to begin their Fazoli’s journey in Tampa. In fact, Chatman couldn’t contain his excitement when interviewed about his latest business endeavor:
“Fazoli’s is one of the most sought-after, well-performing franchises available today. We are very impressed with the controls the company has in place to ensure franchisee success and the level of support they offer. In addition to that solid infrastructure, the food is delicious, the presentation is phenomenal and the attention to detail is like none other.”
The two Georgia restaurants will be opened under the supervision of long-standing franchisee Odus Mundy, and none-other-than Allen Peake of Macon. (You may remember him from his debut in our “Meet Our Franchisees” feature last year!)
No matter how you slice it, the Fazoli’s franchise is booming and growing at an impressive rate. “Our continuing brand refresh efforts have ignited a spark, with franchisees experiencing nearly three times the industry average growth rate and new franchised restaurants continually setting new systemwide records,” says Carl — and we want you to be a part of that success!
