McAlister’s Deli, an Oxford, Miss.-based fast casual restaurant chain, is seeking new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners as it continues its expansion in Michigan.
Looking to grow in the Detroit and Ann Arbor markets, the company is considering qualified franchisees to open locations in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties. McAlister’s currently has one Michigan eatery in Lansing, located at 2901 Preyde Blvd.
“The Detroit and Ann Arbor areas represent an important part of McAlister’s growth strategy, and we’re excited about the brand’s expansion into the state,” says Jeff Sturgis, vice president of franchise development for McAlister’s Deli. “The McAlister’s Deli brand has become a top choice for some of the most successful multi-unit franchise owners in the country, and we’re excited to watch the brand grow in this region.”
Menu items at McAlister’s Deli include broccoli cheddar soup, New England clam chowder, Caesar salads, grilled chicken salads, club sandwiches, a French dip sandwich, a BLT sandwich, and more. Along with dine-in and take-out service, the restaurant also offers catering options, including sandwich trays, box lunches, desserts, and a hot spud bar, as well as vegetarian and craft-your-own customizable options.
Founded in 1989, the company, which has more than 361 restaurants in 28 states, experienced franchise growth in 2015 with $548 million in system-wide sales, 27 new restaurants, and over 50 commitments for new restaurants.
