AUSTIN, Texas - November 11, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Schlotzsky's®, home of The Original® oven-baked sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch® buns, recently announced company plans to expand throughout the greater Las Vegas area.
With three existing locations in Nevada, Schlotzsky's has established solid brand recognition and reputation in the state. Aiming to replicate the same success with additional locations throughout Nevada, the bakery-cafe brand's plan calls for at least six signed franchise deals in Las Vegas by the end of the year, adding to the roster of over 350 locations worldwide.
"The state of Nevada has already cultivated a loyal fan following and a strong brand reputation through the existing locations as consumers demand more convenient, fresh food options to keep up with their active lifestyles," said David Wheeler, Vice President of Franchise Development at Schlotzsky's. "We anticipate the same great success in Las Vegas that we've seen across Nevada as we continue with strategic growth plans in this targeted region of the state."
The new Schlotzsky's locations in Las Vegas will feature the brand's "Lotz Better" restaurant design complete with vibrant colors, playful slogans, contemporary furniture and artwork, and co-branding opportunities with sister company, Cinnabon® to offer franchise partners multiple streams of revenue under one roof. Schlotzsky's offers more than 15 different signature sandwiches served on its legendary Fresh-from-Scratch oven-baked sourdough buns, as well as gourmet pizzas built upon its unique sourdough crust, artisan flatbreads, freshly made-to-order tossed salads, a variety of savory soups and delectable desserts.
"We look forward to growing our presence with qualified franchise partners who have keen business acumen, strong commitment to their community and a shared passion to provide quality products, to join us in continued growth in the Las Vegas area," added Wheeler.
Development plans in Nevada are a part of Schlotzsky's strategic growth initiatives across the nation. The fast casual chain will continue momentum by aggressively targeting markets in their home state, Texas, and markets across the country such as Denver, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, St. Louis and Kansas City.
