Fazoli's opened its first international restaurant December 20, in Manila, Philippines. This is the first unit to open under a 20-unit, five-year deal with franchisee Real Fast, Inc. The restaurant is also the largest Fazoli's, with more than 200 seats.

"This is a significant day for Fazoli's," says CEO Kuni Toyoda. "We are very proud to have the Fazoli's flag waving across the Pacific. We are sure the concept will be a big success."

Domestically, franchise growth continues at a healthy pace. Fazoli's projects 35 new franchise units will open in its current fiscal year, and over 200 new franchise restaurants are committed for development under multi-year agreements. Fazoli's will enter the west coast in 2001 under a five-year, 15-unit development agreement for Orange County, California.
