Texas Tech Opens Fazoli's First On-Campus Unit

October 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON, Ky.- The wait for breadsticks is finally over at Texas Tech University. The college, located in Lubbock, recently opened Fazoli's first on-campus unit, delighting students who asked for its famous breadsticks and other signature Italian dishes. The restaurant is located in a large food court space in The Market at Stangel/Murdough, which was recently renovated into a state-of-the-art food court by campus foodservice, which has a licensing agreement with Fazoli's. The brand was selected after two student focus groups favored it as their first choice to be included in the food court, according to Kirk Rodriguez, director of Hospitality Services. "The first few weeks have been great and the response level and excitement from students has been fantastic," said Rodriguez. "The addition of Fazoli's has been a work in progress for about two years and it has definitely been 'worth the wait' in the words of some of our students. The concept has been a great addition to our overall Hospitality Services program," he added.
