Genghis Grill To Pass 60-Unit Mark By Year’s End

Its name alone should give you a clue that Genghis Grill takes conquering new territory seriously. The Dallas chain, already the largest Mongolian grill chain in the United States, is expanding its exhibition cooking style with new restaurants in three states.

The company says it will add seven more outlets—primarily in the Southwest, South Central, Midwest, and Southeast—to its 54-store count by the end of the year.

Now in 15 states, Genghis Grill will enter North Carolina this fall in Winston-Salem, adding additional units in Charlotte and Greenville early in 2011. Its first Georgia store just opened, with more stores expected in the Atlanta area by the end of the year. Its home state is adding stores in Lubbock and College Station. The first Genghis Grill opened in 1998 in Dallas.
