McAlister’s Deli Headed to Council Bluffs This Spring

The fast-casual restaurant will open its second Iowa location in April

January 25, 2018 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - McAlister’s Deli® Dallas-based franchisee, The Saxton Group, will open its second McAlister’s Deli Iowa restaurant in Council Bluffs this Spring. In 1989, the first McAlister’s Deli® opened in a converted gas station in Oxford, MS. The fast-casual chain has remained one of the nation’s top franchises by being dedicated to genuine hospitality, handcrafted sandwiches, always-fresh salads, giant stuffed spuds, and McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea™.

The Council Bluffs restaurant will be located within the Metro Crossing Shopping Center at 3808 Metro Drive, Suite 103, Council Bluffs, IA 51051. The restaurant is 3,317 square feet and will seat up to 129 guests. The Saxton Group plans to hire 35-40 employees.

“Council Bluffs is only the second McAlister’s Deli in Iowa out of a dozen restaurants planned for the state, and several more planned for the Omaha metro area. We can’t wait to meet our new neighbors in the community and introduce more Iowans to McAlister’s favorites like Our Famous Sweet Tea™ and 13-layer Club sandwich. Plus, Council Bluffs will feature newer technology like app-based ordering and easy, on-the-go order pickup,” says co-CEO of The Saxton Group, Adam Saxton.

The restaurant will be operated by The Saxton Group and will represent the franchisee’s 78th McAlister’s Deli restaurant.

As with all McAlister’s Deli restaurants, the new Council Bluffs location will provide customers with a fast-casual dining experience, a friendly atmosphere and personalized service. The restaurant will offer a menu featuring over 100 items including: sandwiches, giant spuds, entrée salads, soups, desserts and its signature McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea™. In addition to serving dine-in guests, McAlister’s Deli Council Bluffs will have online ordering and a full catering menu.
