Fazoli’s New Prototype Helps Drive Sales

NRN.com reports, “Fazoli’s rebuilding project of the past several years has come to fruition, and the brand expects to end the year with its 18th con""secutive month of positive same-store sales growth, chief executive Carl Howard said.”

“Howard told Nation’s Restaurant News during a tour of the brand’s new prototype in its headquarters city of Lexington, Ky., that November’s 6.6-percent increase in same-store sales was the 220-unit quick-service Italian chain’s best November in more than a decade, and that sales in December were trending even higher. The company credits its new “Expand Your Taste” menu and its new prototype design — in place at all 125 company-owned restaurants and in several franchise markets — with driving results. Updated Fazoli’s locations have more contemporary décor to match fast-casual service upgrades, like food runners, real plateware and silverware, and greater customization available for the chain’s baked pastas.”
