ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Sept. 16, 2013 // PRNewswire // - McAlister's Deli, a leading fast casual restaurant, announced plans to develop 17 restaurants in Indiana, South Carolina and Georgia as part of new multi-unit development agreements with two existing franchise groups.

"We are pleased that our existing franchisees are continuing to expand with McAlister's Deli," said McAlister's Deli President and CEO Frank Paci. "Their commitment to develop demonstrates their confidence in the brand's strength and its ability to provide franchisees with an attractive investment."

McIndy Ventures, LLC, a current McAlister's franchisee with 16 restaurants, will develop 14 new restaurants in Indiana with the first location scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2014.
