I Heart Mac & Cheese announced the brand’s latest franchisee agreement that will bring the brand to West Lafayette, Lawrence, Greenwood, and Merriville, Indiana. These restaurants will join the flagship Westfield location, which opened earlier this summer.
The brand’s newest franchisees, husband and wife Shaleen and Seema Bhatnagar have recently joined the I Heart Mac & Cheese family and will operate 4 new locations. “I Heart Mac & Cheese is the perfect opportunity to help us diversify our businesses portfolio. We are excited to bring our years of retail experience into our restaurants,” shared Bhatnager. “The corporate backing, support and infrastructure of this growing brand made this an easy decision for us.”
The fast-growing brand is slotted to open several locations across states including Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, 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,” says 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.”
