Fazoli’s Continues to Shatter Records as We Reach Our 17th Quarter of Same-Store Sales Growth
We’ve done it again! This quarter marks 17 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth for Fazoli’s — America’s largest fast casual Italian chain.
“Fazoli’s continues to build momentum after a record fiscal year and yet another quarter of solid results,” said Carl Howard, our president and CEO. “Given our incredible value proposition offered to guests, not to mention some of the challenges facing others in the restaurant industry, this is a significant achievement and a testament to the strength of the Fazoli’s brand and its unique positioning. We are continuing to make strides in the right direction and look forward to a stellar second half of the year.”
Fazoli’s franchisees are currently experiencing almost three-times the industry average growth rate, with new franchised restaurants continually setting system-wide records.
To What (and Who) Do We Owe Our Success?
Our President and CEO, Carl Howard
First and foremost, we have to thank the man who makes everything we do possible — Fazoli’s President and CEO Carl Howard. But it’s not just us here at Fazoli’s who think he is the best — the industry thinks so, too! Recently, Carl was announced as one of Franchising’s Best Leaders of 2017. An announcement that came just months after he was named a 2017 Reader’s Picks Power List recipient.
Our New Premium Menu
Our new, modern menu uses premium ingredients and includes offerings such as tableside grated parmesan, upgraded plateware and new dishes, such as “Spicy Sausage Rigatoni” and “Brownie Gelato Sundae.”
Our Newly Remodeled Restaurants
Food is only one part of the dining experience. The other part? The atmosphere! Though many of our locations offer a drive-thru window, for those who enjoy grabbing a healthy, delicious Italian meal on-the-go, we know that our guests also enjoy sharing a meal in the comfort of our restaurant. That’s why this past June, we began an elaborate remodel of several of our locations across the country. Now, select locations proudly feature Wi-Fi bars with free wireless access for all, new table and seating options that accommodate families of all sizes and needs, and textured white brick lining the restaurants. This new, contemporary look and feel is all part of creating an enhanced customer experience for our guests.
Our Loyal Guests and Fans
Our guests love four things — food, fresh ingredients, family, and togetherness. All of which we have in spades here at Fazoli’s. Making the customer experience as wonderful as possible is the driving force behind everything we do here at Fazoli’s.
