Villa Enterprises Brings A Taste of Philly To Chicago

Villa Enterprise Management, a global multiconcept restaurant franchisor, announced the grand opening of its new South Philly Steaks & Fries location at The Fashion Outlets of Chicago in Rosemont, Illinois, this month.

The new, fully enclosed outlet mall recently opened its doors and is expected to be the most well-connected mall in Chicago, offering a mix of high-end retailers and air travel friendliness.

Conveniently located adjacent to O’Hare International Airport and just a few miles from the downtown area, the outlet center is expected to draw in millions of shoppers, whether they are out-of-towners on their way to catch a flight or local residents stopping in on their commute home from the city.

“One of the biggest advantages of The Fashion Outlets of Chicago is its location,” says Adam Torine, senior vice president of business development at Villa Enterprise Management. “It’s a great opportunity for us to introduce a taste of Philly to countless local and traveling shoppers.” 

Villa Enterprise’s family of brands has more than 330 quick-serve concepts in shopping centers, airports, college campuses, and casinos worldwide. To date, the global restaurant franchisor operates in 38 U.S. states; Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and seven additional countries.
