Disrupting The Food Industry With The Premium QSR Concept

The QSR industry is a very crowded space filled with burgers, chicken and tacos. So, how do you stand out? Well, by eliminating the competition altogether and creating your own category. At Fazoli’s, the premier QSR Italian concept, we do things differently. It starts with offering what we call the premium QSR experience.

What does it mean to be an premium QSR? From our food and presentation to our restaurant decor and customer service, quality means everything.

Fazoli’s offers a menu of traditional Italian favorites — highlighted by our famous, mouthwatering, garlic breadsticks — combined with a service experience not typically found in the QSR industry and served in a newly reimaged restaurant environment. And it’s all available to our guests at a great price and value.

With over 200 restaurants, explosive growth and a booming sales trajectory, Fazoli’s has established itself as a leader in the Quick-Service Restaurant segment.

Why Fazoli’s?

There are many reasons to choose to develop with Fazoli’s, here are just a few:

  • Trusted & Experienced Leadership
    • One of the hallmarks of our success is the strength of the relationship we have with our franchisees. Starting with shared values, combined with our operation of over 50 company-owned restaurants, franchisees have reported through a survey completed in 2017 that they trust and respect the leadership of the company and the brand vision.
  • Strong Brand Reputation
    • A reputation is earned, not given, and in the case of Fazoli’s, our 30 years in business has left us with a strong reputation. Why? Because we enjoy and offer the following:
    • High franchisee satisfaction
    • A loyal customer following
    • High quality food
    • A craveable and iconic product – our signature breadsticks
    • Strong consumer value proposition
    • Wide customer base
  • Stable & Growing System Performance
    • With a 95% unit continuity rate since 2015, and a growing sales trend since 2013, Fazoli’s offers experienced restaurant operators strong AUV’s and attractive investment metrics
  • High Growth Potential
    • Fazoli’s has over 200 locations in 26 states, with desirable areas still available for development. The concept is scalable and offers competitive start-up costs, compared to other QSR franchise concepts
  • Attractive Financial Performance
    • Strong unit level sales, attractive food costs and compelling restaurant cash flow all add up to a smart investment
  • Operational & Portfolio Compatibility
    • With less operational complexity than typical QSR franchises [no grills or fryers]; strong drive-thru sales; and a defensible and differentiated concept, Fazoli’s provides a great development alternative to other quick serve restaurant options
