Fazoli’s Teams Up With TravelCenters of America
Have you heard? The Fazoli’s franchise has joined forces with the TA Restaurant Group, a division of TravelCenters of America LLC, to bring fast casual Italian cuisine to highway travelers nationwide.
Just last week we announced the news, and we couldn’t be more excited to get the ball rolling! By signing this agreement with the folks at TA Restaurant Group, we’re now able to expand into four new territories over the next year, including locations in Connecticut, Oklahoma, Texas and Michigan. Our president and CEO Carl Howard is positive this is the start of something great, to say the least. Here’s what he had to share about the opportunity to link up with TravelCenters on this endeavor:
“Our mission at Fazoli’s is to serve America premium quality Italian food, fast, fresh and friendly. I can’t think of a better opportunity to do this than on America’s highways with a company like TravelCenters, which is known for meeting the needs of today’s travelers.”
The first restaurant is set to open its doors in Milldale, Connecticut this summer, with two more popping up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and San Antonio, Texas come the fall. The fourth and final restaurant included in the agreement is expected to start dishing our famous breadsticks and fresh Italian food to the public by early 2018, in Michigan.
As you may have assumed, Carl and the Fazoli’s team aren’t the only ones excited about the new agreement. In fact, John Ponczoch, Senior Vice President of TA and the leader of the TA Restaurant Group, had some kind words to share as well:
“At TravelCenters, we focus on providing our customers with the variety they crave for while traveling the interstate. Fazoli’s provides us with a quality Italian cuisine offer that both interstate travelers and local residents will find themselves coming back for.”
This agreement is just one of many exciting new business endeavors that Fazoli’s is planning for the coming years. From expansion efforts into uncharted territories, to our latest venture into artificial ingredient-free food, there are plenty more exciting opportunities on the horizon for Fazoli’s in 2017!
