UFood Restaurant Group Inc., through its partnership with London-based World Franchise Associates Ltd., is launching an aggressive expansion strategy to identify franchisees who will develop the UFood Grill brand in Europe and the Middle East.
"The time is right for our brand to establish a global presence," says UFood CEO George Naddaff. "We have tremendous momentum, everyone is focused on health and nutrition, and we know that we are a brand that will appeal to people around the world who are seeking delicious, fresh food that is good for them."
UFood Grill is committed to offering consumers food that tastes great but is lower in calories and fat and is healthier. The company has eight locations in Boston, Dallas, and Cleveland, including four airport locations. This fall, the company will open three locations at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, marking its entry into the military channel.
In addition, UFood Restaurant Group is approved to open one unit in the Omni Club fitness center in Fort Myers, Florida, and recently announced an eight-unit franchise development agreement in Puerto Rico.
