Singam joins the Fazoli’s brand with more than 20 years of experience behind him, a franchise portfolio spanning 29 brands, including the likes of Panera Bread, Macayo’s Mexican Food, Virtu Honest Craft, O.H.S.O. Brewery, Barrio Brewing Co. and Copper Plate and many more.
“We’re so excited to be bringing Fazoli’s back to Phoenix and proud to partner with a talented multi-unit operator like Nava,” said Doug Bostick, president of Fazoli’s.
“Over the years, we’ve regularly received hundreds of requests to bring Fazoli’s back to the Phoenix area, so we can’t wait to return to this market. We’re kicking off our growth with Kind Hospitality in a significant way, and this is only the beginning.”
Singam discovered the Fazoli’s brands when he lived in Flagstaff, Arizona in the late ’90s. As he continued to follow the brand’s progress, he was particularly impressed with how it responded to customers’ ever-changing tastes. The first Phoenix location is expected to open in the fall of 2022, with the remaining eight scheduled to open by 2024.
“Fazoli’s is poised for strong growth in the Phoenix market and we’re excited to bring back this best-in-class brand,” Singam said.
“The brand has elevated all aspects of the guest experience, from new menu items to the exceptional tableside service. This brand continues to adapt and live up to its mantra of giving guests exactly what they crave, how and when they want it.”
