Long John Silver’s, announced a new Texas franchisee with development plans in Corsicana, Texas. Quick-service industry veteran Daniyal Ranmal plans his first LJS unit for this fall.
“We chose Long John Silver’s because we see the potential,” says Ranmal. “We see the potential and growth this leadership team is bringing and we wanted to be with a company that knows what they are doing and has been doing it for plenty of years.”
“We’re excited to take this next step in our brand revitalization,” said James O’Reilly, Chief Executive Officer of Long John Silver’s. “Adding a quick-service restaurant industry veteran to our franchisee line up is a pivotal move for LJS and we know he will be a strong asset to our team.”
The Corsicana location will feature Long John Silver’s new, state-of-the-art drive thru of the future, the first in the quick-service industry. Customers can also expect to see new grilled menu options like rice bowls and tacos, customizable with either grilled wild caught Alaskan salmon or grilled shrimp. Ranmal is still in the beginning phases of construction with a target grand opening in fall 2018.
Long John Silver’s recently began the process of revitalizing the brand, swapping the nostalgic Cape Cod elements for clean, nautical-themed lines of a new design. The newly renovated restaurants have already reported double digit growth and the newest Long John Silver’s location in Corsicana, Texas, will showcase this fresh, contemporary change. The brand has evolved from a 100 percent franchised system after beginning to acquire restaurants in late 2015. Today Long John Silver’s owns 10 percent of the restaurants making it the largest restaurant operator for the brand.
Ranmal, the owner of the Corsicana restaurant, is new to the Long John Silver’s franchisee family. He joins more than 260 franchisee groups across the country.
