Kentucky-based Fazoli’s, owned by FAT Brands, is making its debut in Puerto Rico thanks to an area agreement with franchisee Jorge Rodriguez Lockwood, who will open five locations over the next six years
The first will open later this year, according to a press release.
“The demand for high-quality, quick-service concepts in Puerto Rico only continues to grow so we anticipate a strong reception for Fazoli’s when we make our official debut on the island,” Taylor Wiederhorn, chief development officer of FAT Brands, said in the release. “This development deal is also significant as it serves as a strong foundation for growing Fazoli’s on an international scale, which is a key strategic growth pillar for the brand.”
Founded in 1988, Fazoli’s owns and operates nearly 220 restaurants.
