McAlister’s Deli® Aims to Attract New Franchisees in Michigan as Chain Expands

Award-winning fast casual restaurant continues expansion with plans for multiple new locations                  

November 10, 2016 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA – McAlister’s Deli®, a leading fast casual restaurant chain known for its Famous Sweet Tea and recently ranked as one of consumers’ favorite chains by Restaurant Business, today announced it is looking for new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners as the brand continues its expansion into Michigan.

“The Detroit and Ann Arbor area represent an important part of McAlister’s growth strategy, and we’re excited about the brand’s expansion into the state,” said Jeff Sturgis, McAlister’s Vice President of Franchise Development. “The McAlister’s Deli brand has become a top choice for some of the most successful multi-unit franchise owners in the country, and with our recent successful openings in northern Indiana, we’re excited to watch the brand grow in this region. 

As the company looks to expand in the Detroit and Ann Arbor market, they are actively seeking qualified franchisees to develop in Washtenaw, Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties. Currently, McAlister’s has one location in the state of Michigan, located in Lansing at 2901 Preyde Boulevard.

McAlister’s had a successful year of franchise growth in 2015 with $548 million in system-wide sales, the opening of 27 new restaurants – some in new markets, including Chicago, Rochester, and Orlando – and nearly 60 commitments for new restaurants. This growth is fueled by both existing franchisees as well as new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners with notable portfolios.

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.
