Why Franchise with Fazoli’s?
The decision to franchise is not a small one, and is certainly one that requires a lot of thought be put into choosing which company to pursue. We at Fazoli’s are here to make it easy for you! If you’re looking to get involved with a business that’s on an upward path, the only name you need to know is ours.
We’ve always done things a bit differently here at Fazoli’s – compared to other restaurant chains, we place our focus on service and food quality, and strive to be a real restaurant that real people can afford. And despite recent analyses that suggest a U.S. restaurant recession is coming, we proudly boast tremendous success, which includes the signing of nine new multi-unit and single-unit franchise agreements to develop 22 new restaurants nationwide – we’re not slowing down, that’s for sure.
Fazoli’s is a name that people love, and the numbers prove it! For example, we’ve experienced 14 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth, and our franchisees are experiencing three times the industry average growth rate! Not to mention, in September of 2016, we had franchisees see a 4% year-over-year same-store sales increase. Knowing this, it seems pretty clear to us that now is the perfect time to get involved with our brand! Under our new leadership we’re taking every step in the right direction, and we’re confident that you’ll love where your experience with us takes you.
Our brand, along with individual members of our team, has won numerous awards since our inception, and we’re extremely proud of all of them! Some of our recent awards and recognitions include:
- We were named #13 on Fast Casual’s “Brand of the Year” list in 2016.
- We were the Gold Stevie Award winner for Company of the Year – Food and Beverage in 2016.
- We received the CEOX Innovation Award in Marketing/Service in 2015.
- CEO Carl Howard was named #1 on Fast Casual’s Movers and Shakers list in 2014.
- We were awarded the Silver Stevie in the 12th Annual American Business Awards Company of the Year competition in 2014.
