Checkers & Rally’s Plans to Install 30 Modular Units by End of 2018
Drive-thru franchise brand plans to open more than 60 restaurants this year.
June 20, 2018 // Franchising.com // Iconic and innovative drive-thru restaurant chain Checkers & Rally’s is gearing up for a busy 2018, with more than 60 new restaurants slated to open this year, approximately 30 of which are modular build-outs. Checkers & Rally’s is slated to install 18 modular units by end of summer. The brand’s modular units are constructed offsite in a controlled environment, and are delivered to the location site and set via crane.
This strategy allows Checkers & Rally’s franchisees to shave up to 12 weeks off of the development process, allowing for lower construction costs and minimizing time spent securing city permits and on construction. The increased speed and lower costs allow Checkers & Rally’s corporate and franchisees to expand into markets that were once deemed cost-prohibitive. Once set, locations typically open 30-60 days later.
The first location to drop this year was at 4000 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd in Pembroke Park, Florida, which opened on January 28th. Building on the momentum of the first modular drop of the year, Checkers & Rally’s set another modular unit at 441 Adam Shepherd Pkwy in Shepherdsville, Kentucky on April 11th, with another set to drop in Whitehall, Ohio on April 21st. Others to be dropped in 2018 include: Antioch and Jackson Tennessee; Orange City, Lantana and Orlando Florida; Baxley, Georgia; Romeoville, Illinois; several in Houston, Texas; Baltimore, Maryland; and Columbus, Ohio.
