Schlotzsky's Sets Record Pace With 170-Unit Franchise Deal

Schlotzsky's has signed its largest franchise agreement in more than 40 years; the partnership calls for 170 Schlotzsky's locations throughout California, including Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, and San Bernardino counties. Each of the new restaurants will feature a new, contemporary design; an upgraded table-service model; and dessert counters as part of Schlotzsky’s co-branding deal with Cinnabon and Carvel.

This partnership comes on the heels of another multiunit franchise agreement, signed last May with regional developers to open 25 new Schlotzsky's locations throughout Orange County, Calif. The Austin, Texas, chain has more than 350 locations worldwide. In addition to targeting untapped markets in its home state, Schlotzsky’s is looking to expand into markets including Atlanta, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Nashville and St. Louis. Schlotzsky’s aims to have upward of 700 locations by 2016.
