Calexico, the New York–based Mexican food favorite, has signed a major master franchise deal for the UAE and Bahrain. The brand has been expanding through a combination of company- and franchise-owned stores in the U.S., and will now follow in the footsteps of other high-profile fast-casual concepts that have found success in the Middle East markets.
Calexico, the NYC-based concept that was named Best Mexican in New York City by Zagat, has signed a major multi-unit franchise deal – it’s third of 2013. The new deal is a 10-unit deal for Long Island and Queens, neighboring the brand’s home markets of Manhattan and Brooklyn where they have built a near-cult following.
Calexico, the New York City-based concept named Best Mexican in New York City by Zagat, has announced plans for nationwide expansion. The edgy fast casual concept is expanding via a new franchise program, focusing first in core East Coast markets and then elsewhere in the United States. The award-winning concept recently opened its fifth restaurant on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, which also marks the opening of their first franchised unit with multi-unit franchisee Anthony Fauci of Innovative Hospitality Concepts.
