Robeks announced a substantial expansion plan throughout Arizona. By the end of 2023, Robeks will have a total of 10 operating locations in Arizona, three of which are 2023 openings, symbolizing the significant step that Robeks is making with the mission to offer delicious, and healthier-for-you options to even more communities in the region.

In addition to these 10 locations, new and existing Robeks’ franchisees have committed to open an additional 11 locations within the next 24 months. With the projected opening of six new locations in 2024, Robeks is actively exploring opportunities for additional growth in the Phoenix area.  The brand’s commitment to expansion and partnership opportunities underscores the strong vision for the future.

The recent signing of a three-unit area development agreement with Fred, Anita and Aziuana Edwards reflects the brand’s attractiveness to franchisees and is a testament to Robeks’ appeal to families looking for a lucrative opportunity in the food and beverage space. The Edward’s territory will encompass parts of North Scottsdale, with the intent of growing even further and adding more locations in the years to come. 

“Arizona’s incredible growth potential, along with our genuine commitment to bringing tasty and better-for-you options to vibrant neighborhoods, has truly struck a chord with entrepreneurs who appreciate what our brand stands for,” says Todd Peterson, chief development officer of Robeks. “We’re expanding into communities that value health, wellness and flavor, and we’re thrilled to welcome both first-time franchisees as well as seasoned multi-unit operators to Robeks. 

Adding to the Edwards’ multi-unit commitment, earlier this year, Robeks also welcomed Mandy and Andrew Crandell to the brand. The Crandells are planning to open three locations throughout the Mesa and Gilbert area. The first Robeks is already in development at the Mesa Grand Shopping Center. In addition to the Edwards and Crandells, in late 2022 Robeks’ inked a multi-unit development agreement for locations in Glendale, Tempe and Avondale, and the Tempe location just celebrated its opening. Currently, Robeks has eight operating locations in Arizona, spanning the communities of Buckeye, Goodyear, Phoenix (Laveen), Phoenix (South Mountain), Tempe and in both Tucson and Prescott. The Avondale and Litchfield locations are next in line to open their doors.

As Robeks continues to grow, the brand is focused on introducing its scalable franchise opportunity to qualified investors in select markets nationwide. Robeks currently has over 100 open locations with 45+ more in various stages of development. New locations are already in the works within 13 states and the District of Columbia. 

Ideal franchisee candidates should have a passion for elevating guest experiences and are optimistic, coachable, and community-minded individuals that possess a desire to be highly involved in their business. Previous restaurant experience is not required, but is desired. Candidates from a variety of backgrounds are welcomed to apply.
