A Dallas-based franchise partner with Schlotzsky’s restaurant has signed an agreement to open a new location in Paris, according to Schlotzsky’s Communications Manager Amanda Palm.
The contract for the franchise was signed last December, and the company has been looking for a prospective location for the sandwich restaurant, as well as working on a lease and designing the restaurant.
“Our best guarantee is we’ll open in the summertime,” Palm told reporters. “Six to seven months is a quick turnaround, but that’s what we’re aiming for.”
Schlotzsky’s operated in Paris for several years on Lamar Avenue before the company declared bankruptcy in 2004.
In 2006, the sandwich restaurant was acquired byFocus Brands, an affiliate of private equity firm Roark Capital Group, parent company of Cinnabon, Carvel, Moe’s Southwest Grill, and Auntie Annie’s.
Palm told reporters that Schlotzsky’s would be the primary brand in the store, but will feature a co-brand with sister chain Cinnabon. The new location will also sell select Carvel ice cream products.
