I Heart Mac & Cheese announced that current franchisee, Matthew Griffin, franchisees is adding three new restaurants to his current roster.
Husband and wife duo Matthew and Elizabeth have seen so much success with their Westfield, Indiana location that they have decided to bring I Heart Mac & Cheese to more of their mac & cheese loving neighbors.
Matthew, a Noblesville Policeman, experienced I Heart Mac & Cheese for the first time while attending training. Elizabeth was retiring from law enforcement and the couple saw I Heart Mac & Cheese as a viable business opportunity for their family.
“It is a top-rated restaurant and I was impressed. It is based in Florida with locations in several states. Elizabeth and I flew down there in July 2019 to start the process of owning a franchise.” Griffin says. Despite the current restaurant climate amid the COVID-19 the positive customer feedback they have received since opening in June validated their desire to invest in additional I Heart Mac & Cheese locations.
Aside from several other locations planned across the state of Indiana, the Griffins are excited to open these three restaurants in Downtown Indianapolis, Avon, and Plainfield, Indiana communities.
The brand is quickly developing a national footprint with upcoming openings in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Texas.
A unique franchise concept in the restaurant industry with no fryers, grease trap systems or hood systems, I Heart Mac & Cheese requires a low investment and can be opened in a small space, such as a mall kiosk or food court. Shopping malls, sports venues, areas close to colleges and universities, and high-traffic pedestrian areas are also ideal locations. With a home office in South Florida, I Heart Mac & Cheese offers franchise owner training, marketing support and ongoing development opportunities to ensure each location’s success.
“I Heart Mac & Cheese is a fun, attractive concept and an affordable franchise model that is easy to operate, with support systems in place to help our partners be successful,” adds Stephen Giordanella, I Heart Mac & Cheese CEO and Chairman. “We are thrilled to continue growing our brand with partners that share our same beliefs and value our innovative concept, food quality and diverse menu.”
