Healthy rice bowl chain WaBa Grill is officially open in Dallas, marking the brand’s entry into Texas and the fourth state overall as it approaches 200 restaurants in operation.

The new Dallas restaurant is owned and operated by longtime multi-unit franchisee Hilario Raygoza of Raygoza’s Management, Inc., who currently operates five WaBa Grill locations throughout Southern California. Raygoza has exclusive rights to develop WaBa Grill in Dallas County, with plans to grow the brand’s presence to 10 restaurants in the area.

“As a longstanding WaBa Grill franchisee, it’s an honor to introduce WaBa’s signature bowls, proteins and more to the Lone Star State,” says Raygoza. “Guests have enjoyed WaBa Grill in several Western states for nearly two decades, and we’re looking forward to growing the brand legacy and becoming the go-to option for better-for-you food throughout Texas.”
