Fazoli’s Grows Presence in Arkansas With Opening of New Restaurant

Kentucky Based Elevated QSR Italian Chain Expands Into Paragould

June 14, 2018 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON, KY - Fazoli’s, America’s largest elevated quick service Italian chain, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Paragould, Arkansas, marking the brand’s second restaurant in Arkansas. The newly built restaurant is located at 1515 W Kingshighway Blvd.

The Fazoli’s restaurant officially opens its doors on June 26th and will showcase Fazoli’s new contemporary interior deign, as well as a drive-thru.

The new Paragould restaurant is owned and operated by longtime franchisee Rob Hearden, who has been with the brand since 2002. Rob has over 40 years of restaurant operations experience, and owns three other Fazoli’s locations in Tennessee, Mississippi and Jonesboro, Arkansas. Since becoming a franchisee, Rob has had over eight years of positive sales growth within his Fazoli’s restaurants, as well as low turnover rates among employees.

“Thanks to its refined menu and customer satisfaction with the brand, Fazoli’s has proved to be an extremely successful franchise for me and we are thrilled to be bringing the newest location to Paragould,” said Rob Hearden, Fazoli’s franchisee. “We are excited to serve the local community of Paragould and be a place for friends and family to enjoy hearty Italian food with fresh ingredients at a great value.”

The Paragould restaurant will open with Fazoli’s recently refined menu, introducing more flavor and menu options to meet ever-changing consumer tastes and preferences. The modernized menu uses premium ingredients and includes offerings such as tableside grated Parmesan, upgraded plateware, as well as new dishes such as “Spicy Penne with Chicken or Sausage,” and “Brownie Gelato Sundae.”

The Paragould location will serve guests Sunday-Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, visit www.fazolis.com.
