UFood Restaurant Group Inc. announced that it partnered with Congusto LP of Arlington, Texas, to open 35 new UFood Grill locations in the Southwest United States.

“The opening of 35 brand-new UFood Grill locations throughout the Southwest will have an encouraging impact on all communities,” says Troy Alley, Jr., a Congusto partner. “The requests for healthier food options in this country continue to rise and these UFood Grill locations will cater to this demand. The partnership between UFood Grill and Congusto will be a positive new venture, and we look forward to being involved in the promotion of a healthier lifestyle for everyone.”

Congusto LP is a Southwest-based enterprise that specializes in the development of restaurants that offer alternative dining options designed to promote health. Taking its definition of “in good health” literally, Congusto plans to expand its reach nationwide to offer healthier food options that actually taste good.

Congusto LP is a new development venture for Gerald and Troy Alley, the owners of Con-Real LP, Bravado Partners, and The Alley Group. The creation of Congusto complements the Alley’s other entities in the areas of real estate development, construction, and facility ownership that serve the commercial, institutional, and hospitality industries throughout the U.S.

“This 35-unit expansion of UFood Grill is a tremendous reinforcement of a brand dedicated to providing healthier fast-casual food options,” says George Naddaff, chairman and CEO of UFood Grill. “We are thrilled to be expanding our brand with Congusto LP in the Southwest. Like our franchisees, The Hudson Group, JJR Concessions, Puente-Brancato Enterprises, Midfield Concession Enterprises, and I.L. Creations, Congusto’s commitment to building a franchise of healthier food options aligns perfectly with the growth goals of UFood Grill. Across the U.S., consumers are demanding high-quality, healthier food that tastes great. The general public, large private and government facilities, airports, colleges, are embracing UFood Grill, where delicious meets nutritious.”
