August 23, 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 fourth location in Jacksonville, FL. This will be the fourth The Flame Broiler location for franchisee Jackie Grzebin, who owns and manages all four stores in the area. This will be the first The Flame Broiler restaurant in Jacksonville to have a drive-thru window, and only the third in company history.
“The Flame Broiler has seen a lot of success in the Jacksonville area since opening the first location in Tapestry Park in December 2010,” said Jackie Grzebin, The Flame Broiler franchisee. “With the overwhelming support from the community and popular demand, it was the perfect time to open a new store with a drive thru, and expose even more of our wonderful locals to The Flame Broiler’s quality food.”
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 organic charbroiled tofu, freshly blanched vegetables, and topped with chopped green onions. For an added flavor kick, guests are invited to top bowls off with The Flame Broiler’s proprietary hot sauce, double hot sauce, triple hot sauce or its Korean BBQ inspired Magic Sauce.
“It’s been exciting watching Jackie grow within the company,” said Young Lee, CEO and founder of The Flame Broiler. “She demonstrates such passion and cares about our brand so much, it’s no wonder that she’s already established as many successful stores as she has.”
The newly opened The Flame Broiler is located in front of Oakleaf Town Center at 9711 Applecross Road, Unit 4. The dining room is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
