Fazoli’s expands in Missouri
The Fazoli’s franchise has announced the opening of a new restaurant in Poplar Bluff, Mo. According to the information provided, the Poplar Bluff Fazoli’s represents two milestones for the premium Italian quick-service restaurant chain. By opening in a former Hardee’s location, Poplar Bluff is the first conversion using Fazoli’s new prototype design. It also is operated by the first new franchisee to enter the Fazoli’s system in four years.
In the past two years, Fazoli’s has reinvented its menu, relying on more fresh ingredients. Furthermore, a high-energy, contemporary prototype was recently unveiled, and new leadership is invigorating the brand.
“The new Fazoli’s prototype has been performing extremely well,” said Carl Howard, Fazoli’s president and CEO. “We are confident that the design will work equally well in this restaurant as well as in future conversions.” (kbp)
