As many as 10 new locations will come to the Dallas-Fort Worth market over the coming years.
QDOBA Mexican Eats, a fast-casual Mexican restaurant franchisor with more than 740 locations in the U.S. and Canada, has signed a multi-unit franchise development agreement with a major multi-unit, multi-segment development group.
The deal will brings between seven and 10 new restaurants to the Dallas-Fort Worth area over the coming years, with the first new site from this deal slated to open in mid-2022.
This agreement comes as part of QDOBA’s efforts to expand to 2,000 total units, through a mix of existing franchisee expansion, new franchise agreements, and continuing corporate developments.
“We believe that successful franchises are built on flavorful food, frontline innovation, and strong partnerships,” said QDOBA’s vice president of franchise development, Shawn Caric. “As QDOBA continues to build out markets across the country, these core values remain front and center while we continue to expand our franchise network. We’re excited to continue working with proven franchisees with extensive restaurant and operational experience who are as committed to these values as we are.”
This deal follows a similar agreement signed in May for the New York Tri-State Area and Southwest Florida, which is set to bring a further 15 sites to these core markets.
“QDOBA has entered an exciting period of growth and the nation’s top franchise groups are taking notice in a serious way,” Caric said. “From our high average unit volumes and flexible buildouts to national brand awareness and a great return on investment, we’ve built a model that truly checks all the boxes for franchisees.”
