Naf Naf Grill Plans To Spread Out

Chicago-based Naf Naf Grill, now backed with investment from Roark Capital Group, plans to expand from its current 13 units to 150 restaurants within five years. While terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed, Roark has taken a minority position to help expand the 6-year-old chain’s footprint beyond the Chicago area, starting this summer with four locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Naf Naf serves Americanized Middle Eastern food in a Chipotle-like setting. All stores are company-owned. Atlanta-based Roark also has stakes in Arby's, Corner Bakery Café, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Schlotzsky’s and Wingstop
