UFood Restaurant Group Inc. announced that the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) has awarded the company a contract to build and operate a third UFood Grill unit at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) in Maryland.
The company has already been awarded a contract to build and operate two additional UFood Grill units at Aberdeen. The restaurants are projected to open in summer 2011.
"With the national dialogue focused on both nutrition and the well-being of our military men and women, we are very pleased to be able to bring our delicious and nutritious food to Aberdeen," says UFood CEO George Naddaff. "This is an exciting opportunity for us to expand into the military channel, and we look forward to opening these new units later this summer."
UFood Grill is committed to offering consumers food that is both delicious and nutritious, with a wide-ranging menu that includes lean burgers, rice bowls, salads, wraps, and smoothies.
The company currently has eight locations in Boston, Dallas, and Cleveland, including three airports (Logan Airport [two units], Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport, and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport), urban areas, and Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.
