ADDISON, Texas -- Grandy's has signed an agreement with convenience store owner and current franchisee Sam Poonawala to open two Grandy's locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by the end of this year, the company announced.
"We are big believers in Grandy's and what it represents," said Poonawala. "We have learned that the brand provides a great business opportunity for us as we create additional profits within our growing number of convenience store locations."
The quick-service homestyle foodservice program will operate out of two convenience stores Poonawala operates. The first is located in Dallas at the corner of Webb Chapel Road and Royal Lane; the second is in Fort Worth on Bridgewood Drive. Poonawala already operates a Grandy's franchise at another Dallas c-store.
"Sam is a valued member of the Grandy's family," said Ward Olgreen, president and CEO of Grandy's and its sister company, Souper Salad. "We believe there is tremendous opportunity for [our] brand as a free-standing concept, as well as in non-traditional locations such as c-stores, airports and universities."
