UFood Grill, the award-winning fast-casual restaurant franchise where “delicious meets nutritious,” will open five new locations at Air Force bases across the country before the end of the year.
The company announced new locations for Dover AFB, in Delaware; Randolph AFB, in San Antonio, Texas; Good Fellow AFB, in San Angelo, Texas; Cannon AFB, in New Mexico; and Minot AFB, in North Dakota.
“I take incredible pride in expanding our locations to serve more men and women in the military,” says Sal Rincione, CEO of UFood Grill. “I know first-hand that they deserve the very best from those they serve and protect.”
Rincione was a counter intelligence officer in the U.S. Army and served with the 101st Infantry Division and the 2nd Infantry Division before entering the private sector. Now, as a successful franchise executive, he looks at his role at UFood Grill as an opportunity to serve in a whole new way.
The five new locations at air force bases will reflect a new restaurant design and menu the company debuted this summer.
The UFood Grill menu includes chicken, beef, turkey, and veggie burgers, unfries, steak tips, wraps, bowls, salads, and paninis prepared fresh using natural and organic ingredients, whole grains, light cheeses, and freshly made dressings. Meals are low in calories, fat, and sodium and are made to order. Nothing is ever fried. Beverages include real fruit smoothies and specialty teas. Created in a better-for-you way, UFood Grill is transforming the industry one healthy meal at a time.
UFood Grill is also a member of VetFran, a program helping U.S. Military veterans locate franchise opportunities and providing veterans a path towards business ownership with training, mentoring, and financial assistance. As a member of VetFran, UFood Grill offers a 50 percent discount on its current franchise fee to help veterans own and operate a UFood Grill restaurant.
UFood Grill has 14 locations open across the U.S. The company recently unveiled a new prototype for traditional in-line retail sites with plans to expand the chain to more than 100 locations over the next four years.
