Smalls Sliders® Dropping 12 Cans Across Jacksonville and Tallahassee

The Cheeseburger Slider Brand Everyone is Talking About Signs Second Deal with Existing Operator in Florida

May 01, 2024 // // FLORIDA – Smalls Sliders, the industry-disrupting cheeseburger slider brand, announced its latest multi-unit agreements with esteemed operating group, DPC Smalls Investments, spearheaded by Doug Cone. Elevating the brand’s footprint across Florida, Cone and Smalls inked an 8-Can deal for the Jacksonville area and an additional 4-Can deal for Tallahassee, marking 12 total Cans dropping across the Sunshine State.

Florida-based entrepreneur Doug Cone, who is spearheading DPC Smalls Investments, brings an extensive background in business management and an impressive professional resume to this opportunity. As the CEO of a highly successful beverage distribution company, Cone is eager to translate those skills into his latest venture with the star-studded QSR brand.

“We are absolutely thrilled to continue growing alongside Smalls Sliders in Florida,” said Cone, who first signed on with the brand for a 5-Can deal in the Ocala market. “Since first signing on with the brand, we all felt very confident in its ability to become a staple here in Florida and knew we wanted to continue expanding our ownership portfolio. The love and passion expressed by the leadership team is contagious and we can’t wait to play a part in the brand’s impressive growth.”

Targeting key cities across Florida such as Jacksonville, Tallahassee, St. Augustine, Lake City, Orange Park and more, the first Can is expected to drop early next year.

“Our esteemed franchise network is an element of what sets us apart within the competitive QSR industry,” said Maria Rivera, CEO of Smalls Sliders. “Our experience with Doug and his team through his initial deal for Gainesville has been exceptional, and it only made sense to grow this partnership. Doug is very well-equipped to introduce our name to more high-priority markets across Florida and we’re eager to support him and his team across all of their Cans.”

Smalls Sliders opened its first signature ‘Smorange™’ colored Can in 2019. Since its inception, Smalls Sliders has disrupted the QSR industry with its stacked leadership team and robust development pipeline, furthering its rapid growth trajectory with more than 200 Cans open or under development. The brand continues to garner high-level industry recognition, with Nation’s Restaurant News featuring Smalls Sliders in its “Breakout Brands of 2023”, and QSR Magazineranking the brand in its annual QSR 50 Contenders list. Other accolades include ranking on Entrepreneur magazine’s “Top New & Emerging Franchises” list in 2023.
