Fazoli’s Successful Year Paves The Way For Promising 2017 Expansion Plans
This just in: America’s largest fast casual Italian chain launches franchise development incentives to drive expansion through the roof in 2017!
Recently, Fazoli’s announced a record-breaking 15 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth, recorded at the close of 2016. If that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve also got 11 new franchise agreements signed, with 25 new restaurants in the works nationwide. According to our president and CEO Carl Howard, Fazoli’s signed more than double the number of franchise agreements in 2016 than in the previous year.
“The brand’s success can be attributed to several factors, including 15 consecutive quarters of positive same-store sales, high average unit sales volume, as well as enhancements made to our menu and catering program, to name a few. From our unlimited breadsticks to warm table service, Fazoli’s provides both customers and franchisees a value second to none in the fast casual industry.”
Though it seems like Fazoli’s has franchising down to a science, we’re never shy about looking for new and inventive ways to take the brand to the next level. Need proof? Take the brand refresh initiative we began last year for example. Many of our restaurants have already received an exterior redesign and an interior refresh, boasting a new, contemporary look and feel. Keep an eye out for more restaurant redesigns this April, a total of 15 to be exact. We plan to unveil a new modern look, complete with a Wi-Fi bar.
But that’s not all! In addition to our sleek new look and feel, we also released our 2017 Franchise Growth Incentive Program earlier this month. The program is set to run through June 30, 2017, and is meant to accelerate our national expansion efforts this year – which include 16 planned openings in communities nationwide, such as: Zionsville, Indiana; Snellville, Georgia; and Maysville and Hazard, Kentucky.
Business is booming, and the numbers don’t lie! Fazoli’s franchisees are experiencing nearly three times the industry average growth rate, with new franchised restaurants continually setting new systemwide records. With nearly 220 restaurants in 25 states, Fazoli’s is currently seeking single- and multi-unit operators to join its successful franchise network.
