Sandella’s Flatbread recently closed a multi-unit franchising deal with Gourmet Ventures bringing five new restaurants to Houston, Texas. The franchisee is expected to open their first restaurant by the end of the year in the Houston Medical Center.

“Houston has a diversified restaurant scene with all types of cuisines,” says a Gourmet Ventures representative. “Sandella’s is going to fit right in due to its health conscious and delicious menu. Customers are going to love it.”

This is Sandella’s first venture into Houston, although there are over 15 restaurants in development throughout the state in Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio. The company has 125+ locations open throughout the U.S. Restaurants average 1,000-1,500 square feet and seat 30 to 40 guests.
