June 19, 2014 // Franchising.com // MISSION VIEJO, CALIF. - Following the successful makeovers and upgrades to restaurants throughout its system, Sizzler is sending its construction crews to the Carson restaurant at 20755 S. Avalon Blvd. A fixture on the suburban Los Angeles dining scene since the 1970s, it closed following dinner on Father’s Day. It is expected to reopen in late summer.
According to Sizzler president and CEO Kerry Kramp, the restaurant will be given a complete update, inside and out. "Sizzler continues to work with its franchisees to upgrade the entire chain with facility improvements and menu enhancements," Kramp said. "The new décor and healthier salad bar selections are becoming guest favorites as this process continues across all Sizzler restaurants."
Kramp added that customers have responded very favorably to the recent improvements made to the Lomita restaurant. "We are taking the Carson restaurant a step further and introducing some brand new features and menu items." According to Kramp, the expanded menu will include new options for guests to customize their meals. Carson diners also can look forward to an updated exterior and landscaping. Inside, attractive wall coverings and artwork, custom lighting for a warm ambience, new carpeting and tile, and redesigned booths and chairs will provide a more comfortable dining experience. Digital menu boards will make ordering easier and more efficient. "Carson is the perfect neighborhood for Sizzler," Kramp added. "We’re excited about bringing our longtime guests – especially families – an all-new restaurant that will allow them to enjoy a delicious, affordable meal with great hospitality in a relaxed environment."
Based in Mission Viejo, Calif., Sizzler operates or franchises more than 150 restaurants in the United States, including Puerto Rico.
