Read More About

Sandella's Flatbread Cafe announces that franchise opportunities for its fast-casual cafe outlets are now available in locations throughout Orange County.

Sandella's Flatbread Cafes serve paninis, quesadillas, wraps, grilled flatbreads, rice bowls, and salads. Made using the company's proprietary brick-oven flatbread, Sandella's menu items are not only fresh, healthy, and delicious, they are also an excellent value starting at $4.99.

Founded in 1994 in West Redding, Connecticut, Sandella's has more than 150 locations nationwide and 400 more in development in the United States and the Middle East.

With fifteen years of operational experience, Sandella's Flatbread Cafe is a proven concept in the fast growing bakery-cafe segment of the industry.

Marc and Barbara Hughston hold the Sandella's Flatbread Cafe master franchise rights for Orange County, and operate their own cafe in Aliso Viejo.

"The food really sold us on the concept," says Barbara Hughston, "and we knew Orange County folks would want to enjoy fresh, healthy and delicious meals at an affordable price."

Sandella's flatbread is baked fresh, all natural, has no trans fat, zero grams of fat and only 195 calories.

Marc Hughston says, "You know how it is when you want something fast that's good for you, but all the fast places aren't that healthy and all the good places aren't that fast? At Sandella's, you can eat right, right away."

Sandella's Flatbread Cafe requires a small kitchen footprint. Additionally, there are no grills, fryers, hoods or venting, so start-up costs are typically lower than that of many other franchises in this segment of the market. According to Marc Hughston, "The site location opportunities in Orange County are better than ever now, and two more franchisees are scheduled to open in September. This is the time to take action."

On Tuesday, September 22nd at 2:00 pm, Mike Stimola, CEO and founder of Sandella's Flatbread Cafe, will lead a Discovery Day in Aliso Viejo, minutes away from the location of the Hughston's Sandella's Flatbread Cafe.
