Schlotzsky’s® Aims to Attract New Franchisees in Arizona as Chain Expands

Leading fast casual chain looks for new franchisees in Phoenix.

October 20, 2016 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA, Ga. – Schlotzsky’s®, home of The Original® oven-baked sandwich and famous Fresh-from-Scratch® buns, announced its continued expansion in Arizona after a successful year of franchise growth and sales. Diving deeper into key growth markets such as Phoenix, the chain is actively seeking qualified franchisees in this region as well as state-wide.

“Arizona represents an important part of Schlotzsky’s growth strategy, and we’re excited about the brand’s continued expansion into the region,” said Peter Ortiz, Schlotzsky’s Vice President of Franchise Sales. "The Schlotzsky’s brand has become a top choice for some of the most successful multi-unit franchise owners in the country, so we’re excited to watch the brand grow in these new markets due in large part to the talent of our franchisees.”

As the company looks to open additional locations in the area, they are actively seeking qualified franchisees to develop in the areas in and around Phoenix. Currently, Schlotzsky’s has three locations in Phoenix and nine additional locations throughout the state of Arizona.

Schlotzsky’s had a successful year of franchise growth in 2015 with nearly $320 million in system-wide sales, the opening of 14 new restaurants, and the signing of 44 new franchise deals. This growth is fueled by both existing franchisees as well as new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners with notable portfolios.

Schlotzsky's currently operates more than 350 franchised locations in the U.S., across 34 states, and abroad. The company has attracted a record number of franchise inquiries in recent years due to its quality leadership, healthy sales to investment ratio, and exceptional company performance.
