Salata Franchise of Houston to expand into Florida.
The company's footprint includes more than 70 corporate-owned and franchise locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Georgia and Southern California.
Houston-based Salata—a fast-casual salad restaurant—has announced plans to double its store portfolio by expanding its footprint into Florida. CBRE Brokers Brian Ashby and Sydney Dixon will oversee selecting locations for the 30 restaurants it will open this year. The company also plans to open 100 restaurants in 2019 and 2020, focusing on Sunbelt markets including locations in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta, Chicago and Oklahoma City.
Salata currently has more than 70 corporate-owned and franchise locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Georgia and Southern California. Spaces are 2,800 square feet on average. The company prefers co-tenancy with other best-in-class, fast-casual brands.
“We are truly proud to align ourselves with such a quality product and great group of people offering a healthy lifestyle to the masses,” said Ashby in a prepared statement. “Our new partnership with Salata is allowing us to push the boundaries of research, location analytics, predictive modeling and transactional management, collectively described by CBRE as Retail Science.”
