Checkers and Rally’s Expands Footprint to Casa Grande
America’s #1 Double Drive-Thru Brand Brings Bold Flavors and Affordable Convenience to Arizona
Checkers and Rally’s, the double drive-thru burger and fries’ brand announced its latest restaurant opening in Casa Grande situated at 405 E. Florence Blvd. This new location is owned and operated by experienced entrepreneurs and partners, Bryan Ledbetter and Brian Daelick. The partners plan on opening several Rally’s in the Phoenix region, with the first in Casa Grande.
“Brian and I are thrilled to expand our portfolio in the Phoenix market with Checkers and Rally’s,” said Bryan. “We were looking for a brand that has unique flavors and a dynamic dining experience, while also prioritizing giving back to our local community. Ultimately, Checkers and Rally’s was the perfect match for us.”
Bryan and Brian are multi-unit owners with seven units of Filiberto’s, a 24-hour Mexican Restaurant chain with several sites in Casa Grande, Mira Copa, Mesa, Flagstaff, and Las Vegas. Known for their expertise in commercial real estate, the team brings a diverse skill set to the table, with Bryan spearheading development and Brian managing operations. In addition to building businesses, the partners are also committed to their families and work to coach, mentor, and foster a culture of growth and development within their teams.
“With a deep understanding and history of operating other locations, Bryan and Brian are the type of owners who are committed to the growth of our brand,” said Robert Bhagwandat, Senior Director of Franchise Development at Checkers Drive-in Restaurants. “We eagerly anticipate Casa Grande’s opening, where they will bring the same dedication to excellence that mirrors the innovation and convenience synonymous with Checkers and Rally’s.”
The latest Casa Grande restaurant highlights the continued growth of the brand, with an updated prototype look and a simplified operating model to better service the community. This opening marks the ninth Rally’s in Arizona, expanding the national footprint of the double-drive thru brand.
Merged in 1999 to form one concept, Checkers and Rally’s primarily operates through a proven franchise model, in which owners benefit from brand recognition, operational support and marketing resources. Potential franchise prospects can develop on less than half of an acre, which is half the size of competing drive-thru concepts. Checkers and Rally’s current strategy is targeting select markets throughout the United States, particularly in Wisconsin, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, Las Vegas, Arizona, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
