Sandella's Flatbread Café To Add Units To Northern Virginia

Hottest Flatbread Concept in U.S. Will Open Second Unit in Virginia

October 20, 2008 // // West Redding, CT, October 20, 2008— Sandella's Flatbread Café and Melaku Woldeyes closed a deal to bring another unit to Northern Virginia that Woldeyes hopes to open before the end of the year. Woldeyes' store will be the third to open in Northern VA, joining Arlington and Fair Oaks locations, and will add to the several upcoming openings in surrounding areas including Fairfax, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Sandella's Flatbread Café is a fast casual flatbread concept featuring a health-conscious menu that has gained worldwide popularity. With over 125 locations currently open, Sandella's expansion plans include 400 new restaurants across the United States and the United Arab Emirates. Woldeyes has the option to bring up to six more units to the Northern Virginia area.

Woldeyes is hoping to tap into the real estate market of popular areas throughout Northern Virginia such as Crystal City and Rosslyn, with hopes to venture into D.C. sometime in the near future as well.

"Sandella's Flatbread Café offers tasty food that's simple to make and a pleasure to eat," says Woldeyes. "People with busy lives want to grab a quick healthy lunch and get on with their day. No one wants to go back to work feeling worse than when they left! I think Sandella's will be a huge hit in the fast paced world of D.C."

Sandella's Flatbread Café incorporates the hottest trends in the fast casual segment, offering consumers fresh, hot and healthy menu items such as grilled paninis, sandwiches, grilled flatbreads, chopped salads and quesadillas—all made with their own brick-oven flatbread that is low calorie and fat free. Already ahead of its time, Sandella's is trans-fat free and listed in the Weight Watchers Points Guide.

Restaurants average 1,000-1,500 square feet and seat 30 to 40 guests.

Prime franchise territory is still available worldwide. If you are interested in franchising with Sandella's please visit or contact Alexandra Doyle at 703-837-5168 or
