Super Chix Looking to Expand Fast Casual

Fast casual has been the “it” segment in foodservice for a few years now. With so many restaurants in this one space, it’s no surprise that some emerging concepts continue to find ways to appeal to customers that more established fast-casual restaurants may miss. One of these is Super Chix, a Dallas-based operation that describes itself as “a classed up chicken joint.”

Pizza Patrón Resumes Franchising

Mexican-themed pizza chain Pizza Patrón announced that it is resuming franchising after shutting down franchise sales in 2013. The company decided to suspend its franchising operations to get a better handle on “the standards of operation, the quality of the products and service.”
