March 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // SANTA ANA, Calif. - The Flame Broiler, known for serving simple, healthy and delicious rice bowls while on the go, continues its expansion with a new location in Tempe, AZ.
To celebrate The Flame Broiler’s new Tempe location, they will be offering $5 regular-sized bowls to the public on opening day, which is Thursday, March 9. Guests can order their choice of chicken, beef or tofu.
This will be the first The Flame Broiler location to arrive in the Phoenix area, but the second location for franchisee Julie Manquen. Julie believes strongly in the Flame Broiler concept and feels it’s important for Arizona communities to have access to simple, heathy fast food options. Julie has been running a Flame Broiler location in Rancho Cucamonga, CA for multiple years and after the new Tempe opening, she also has plans to open additional locations throughout the suburban Phoenix area.
“The Flame Broiler will be a wonderful addition to the Tempe community,” said Julie Manquen, The Flame Broiler franchisee. “I selected Arizona as the place of our stores’ expansion because I thought it was a market that deserved the concept, and one that would quickly become devoted to improving their overall health and wellness through dining at The Flame Broiler.”
The Flame Broiler’s core menu features delicious rice bowls that start at only 140 calories. The bowls are made with non-GMO white or brown rice, Angus beef, all-natural chicken or charbroiled tofu, freshly blanched vegetables, and topped with chopped green onions. For an added flavor kick, guests are invited to top their bowls off with The Flame Broiler’s proprietary hot sauce made with cayenne peppers or their Korean BBQ inspired Magic Sauce.
“As The Flame Broiler brand continues to expand, it’s especially exciting to see it enter a new territory,” said Young Lee, CEO and founder of The Flame Broiler. “Julie truly loves and supports the brand, and we look forward to her success in Arizona.”
