Development Criteria

The majority of existing Fazoli's locations are free-standing, with the remainder being end-cap locations.  Conversions of existing, free-standing buildings of appropriate size and use will be considered. Drive-thru capabilities are required in all Fazoli's locations. In general, Fazoli's restaurants are located in high-traffic corridors with numerous and varied demand generators.
