Fast casual restaurant chain McAlister’s® Deli is greatly expanding throughout the Houston, TX area with 10 locations as part of an agreement with new franchise Southwest Concepts, LLC.
“The owners of Southwest Concepts, LLC have a strong track record of excellent restaurant development and operations experience and bring more than 10 years of foodservice experience to McAlister’s,” said McAlister’s Chief Development Officer Jeff Sturgis. “We are confident the team will sustain a loyal fan base throughout these communities and will continue to grow the brand’s footprint across the market.”
These 10 additional locations will be built throughout the Houston market over the next 8 years, with one restaurant slated to open by the end of 2015. McAlister’s currently operates 6 restaurants in Houston and plans to open two more locations in 2015 with existing franchisees.
Al Dossani, Owner of Southwest Concepts, LLC, expressed his excitement about the new partnership, noting, “We are passionate about the brand and look forward to bringing McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea™, sandwiches, soups, spuds, and genuine hospitality to more communities in Houston.”
Congrats on this latest opportunity, McAlister’s!
