Newk’s Eatery announces an 18-restaurant expansion across Texas and Oklahoma over the next few years. Openings are slated for ten Dallas area locations, as well as eight Oklahoma locations throughout Oklahoma City, Norman, Moore, and Stillwater.

“We’re thrilled to continue expansion throughout Texas and Oklahoma with this exciting new development agreement,” says Chris Cheek, chief development officer at Newk’s Eatery. “The response to our Dallas locations has been wonderful and we’re looking forward to further growing our footprint with Matthew Biggers and Cuyler Esposito.”

Full Belly Holdings, LLC, co-owned by Matthew Biggers and Cuyler Esposito, will develop the 18 new restaurants. The company currently operates three Newk’s restaurants throughout the Dallas metro. Previously, Esposito was a franchisee of Tropical Smoothie Café.

“When we had the opportunity to continue Newk’s expansion across two thriving metro-area communities, we jumped at it,” says co-owner Esposito. “Our partnership with Newk’s has been a great experience since the beginning and we’re looking forward to bringing more locations to neighborhoods throughout Texas and Oklahoma.”
