Fazoli's Launches Aggressive Search for Franchisees

Jan 27, 2016 300

Fast-casual restaurant leader Fazoli's, riding a five-year same-store sales growth streak, is taking its story on the road, part of an aggressive franchise recruitment program. Fazoli's, already the nation's largest Italian fast-casual chain, is hosting free open houses throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The first is January 26 in Toledo, Ohio. Others will be in Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Parkersburg, West Virginia.

Fazoli's was acquired last year by Sentinel Capital Partners, which put the brand on the franchising fast track. Under its current incentive program, new franchisees are eligible for discounts of up to $20,000 off the initial $30,000 franchise fee. Royalties have been cut to 2 percent from 4 percent for the first year, and to 3 percent for the second year. Vendor fees also will be discounted for the first 12 months.
