Rita’s has signed its first development agreement in the state of Texas. The three-store agreement will result in new stores in Colleyville, Watauga and Lewisville, northern suburbs of Dallas-Fort Worth. Texas will mark the 18 state to join the Rita’s family when the stores open for business in Spring 2009.
The opening of three store locations in Texas illustrates Rita’s aggressive expansion plan, set forth by Jim Rudolph, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Rita’s.
In 2008, Rita’s opened 90 locations and plans on opening 75 stores in 2009, with five locations scheduled to open in Texas in 2009. All of Rita’s new locations offer convenient walk-in service and all stores will be open year round.
