Fazoli’s QSR chain signed two separate development agreements that will expand the brand in Georgia and Arkansas. That will add another eight units to the chain’s 220 U.S. locations.

Georgia development targets include Snellville, Gainesville and Peachtree City. Lamon Brooks and his partners at Arriba Restaurant Group plan to add five Fazoli’s in those areas in the first half of 2019.

Central Arkansas development targets include Benton, Conway and Searcy areas through a three-unit deal with Junior Das, Linda Bradley and Andy Patel of Pasta Joint LLC. The franchisees intend to open their first Fazoli’s in one of those locations in 2019.
