Fazoli’s CEO Carl Howard Speaks Out on FastCasual.com’s C-Speak
While some brands are struggling to stay afloat, Fazoli’s is doing quite the opposite! Our franchisees are experiencing three times the industry average growth rate, and they are continuing to set company-wide records.
Recently, our CEO, Carl Howard, sat down with FastCasual.com to discuss our brand and the changes that have been taking place to turn things around. As you may already know, Carl Howard joined our team in 2008, and since then he has been working day in and day out to rebrand and revitalize our “fast, fresh Italian” restaurant concept. His success certainly speaks for itself, with some of our recent accomplishments being that:
- We signed nine multi-unit and single-unit franchise agreements to develop 22 new restaurants nationwide.
- We’ve experienced 13 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth.
- In July, we had franchisees boasting a 5.1% year-over-year same-store sales increase.
While we could keep going on and on, let’s hear straight from Carl about how he’s taken our brand to the next level (plus more):
As we look to the future, we’re seeking great operators to join our team and become the next Fazoli’s owner – could that be you?
