Multiple Franchises Enter New Markets and International Expansion is Underway
West Palm Beach, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Nearly six months into the year, Jon Smith Subs is turning heads within the hospitality industry with its aggressive expansion into new markets. Locations now under construction—or opening soon—will be in the cities of Fort Worth and Spring, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; Richmond, Virginia; and Port St. Lucie, and Miramar, Florida. The most recent location to open was in Miami, Florida, and imminent openings are scheduled for Pembroke Pines, Florida, and Springfield, Ohio.
The Jon Smith Subs international expansion is now firmly underway with Master License Partner agreements in place for United Kingdom, Portugal, South Africa, and Columbia. In 2018, the brand expects to target other international locations for expansion in strategic locations around the globe, including Australia.
“We are exceptionally proud of the rate in which we’ve entered new local markets this calendar year, but we’re also extremely proud of our targeted international expansion,” said Scott Stuck, brand president at Jon Smith Subs. “By expanding into South America, Australia and Europe, the Jon Smith Sub brand is growing fast, and presents a great revenue-making opportunity for anyone that wants to become a franchise owner.”
Jon Smith Subs, part of the United Franchise Group affiliated companies and brands, meets the fast-growing fast-casual food concept with an array of appealing dishes. Known for its marinated sirloin steak subs, other great options include marinated grilled chicken subs, specialties from the grill, giant deli subs, salads, numerous side options and a kids’ menu that includes a combo meal with a choice of turkey, ham, meatball, cheeseburger or grilled cheese. “Without a doubt, our expansion success is centric to the quality of our food and menu options,” said Stuck.
