Fazoli’s is set to bring its acclaimed Italian dishes and famous signature breadsticks to Dallas-Fort Worth.

Fazoli’s CEO Carl Howard announced that the company has executed an area development agreement with Sajib Singha of Singha Group to open three locations throughout the metroplex, with the first slated to open in the second half of 2021.

A 20-year industry veteran, Singha began his career as an operational manager at KFC, where he worked for 10 years before beginning his venture as a franchisee for Golden Chick in 2012. Currently, Singha owns 17 restaurants – various Captain D’s, Dairy Queen, Golden Chick, Papa John’s and Schlotzsky’s locations – within the DFW area.

“I’ve been looking to expand my brand portfolio for a while now, and Fazoli’s really stood out to me as the perfect brand to franchise,” Singha says. “There is truly nothing like Fazoli’s, and I am so excited to bring it to DFW. There’s a location in Waco that I stop at every time I’m in the area. Where else can you order craveable, premium Italian dishes in the convenience of a drive-thru? Guests will be amazed by the high quality food they receive for an incredible price. And, don’t even get me started on the unlimited breadsticks.”

In addition to enjoying Fazoli’s delicious, indulgent food, the brand’s success in 2020 served as another selling point for Singha.

“With all of the challenges the COVID-19 crisis brought on the restaurant industry this year, Fazoli’s has shown its strength,” Singha adds. “I’ve been really impressed by the business’s continuous achievements, and it has become clear to me that it’s a pandemic-proof brand. As a 30-year industry leader, Fazoli’s has proved it has staying power.”
