Owner Samer Shalaby, opens the new ZIPS location with a diverse history of business owning including two Salad Creations and one Zaxby’s, as well as a portfolio of day cares, non-franchised restaurants and properties.
“I have been involved in franchises and small businesses for years and upon discovering the convenient and affordable services ZIPS is able to provide its customers, I immediately became interested in becoming an owner,” said Shalaby.
