Fazoli’s CEO Carl Howard Featured in The Lane Report’s 2017 Business Projections
As we step into 2017, Lexington based business and economic news magazine, The Lane Report, is taking a look at the economic projections for the state of Kentucky – turning to local business leaders like our very own CEO Carl Howard for their perspective.
According to The Lane Report, “Kentucky business leaders have their highest expectations in nearly a decade as 2017 opens.” It seems as though business was booming across the board for Kentucky-based companies in 2016, and as such, seasoned entrepreneurs in the area expect nothing but continued growth and success as the new year progresses. Among these is one of our own – Fazoli’s CEO, Carl Howard:
“Fazoli’s continues to be extremely, if not ‘over-the-top’ optimistic about the economy of Lexington and the overall business environment in the state. In my brief 10 years in the Bluegrass state, I have never seen economic development so robust. I believe that with continued low unemployment and a significant change in our presidential leadership, we will only see Kentucky’s economic environment continue to thrive in 2017.”
As you can see, Carl and the Fazoli’s franchise family have no reservations about continued growth for the coming year. In fact, they’re looking forward to taking on the challenge and picking up right where we left off in 2016!
“Fazoli’s has enjoyed record success with over 15 quarters of consecutive same-store sales growth, and we are again growing locations nationally and hiring more team members to join our growing brand. It is with honor that we are headquartered in Lexington, and we appreciate all of the support of our local communities in Kentucky. Without this support we would be just another brand.”
We’re confident that 2017 will be a profitable year full of promising potential for expansion and growth. After all, it’s clear that people love Fazoli’s, our food and fast casual dining concept, and we’re prepared to give the people more of what they want!
Whether you’re an existing franchisee looking to expand your Fazoli’s efforts, a seasoned franchise owner looking for a new investment opportunity, or are completely new to the franchise world, we’re confident that opening a Fazoli’s is the best next step for you.
