Restaurant industry veteran signs three-unit deal to bring Capriotti sandwich shops to Fresno
FRESNO, California, February 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Capriotti sandwich shop, known for its award-winning artisanal sandwiches, announced the signing of a new franchise agreement that will bring three new stores to Fresno. The first location at 5058 N. Palm Avenue is slated to open in early spring 2021.
The three-store deal is led by a restaurant industry veteran and current multi-unit Checkers and Rally franchisee, Javier Gomez. With over 32 years of experience in the restaurant industry and a proven track record of growing businesses into new markets, Gomez knows the food industry well. He got his start in the restaurant business as a college, working at a KFC in Los Angeles. After graduation, Gomez worked at Checkers and Rally’s, where he became a shift supervisor at just 18 years old. With the intention of moving into the business, he took an all-expenses-paid 5 week trip for management training and uprooted his life and traveled 300 miles north to work in Fresno, California. Gomez later became a District Manager, and in 2012 he became the owner of the Checkers and Rally’s franchise. To date, it currently has 11 locations in Central Valley.
“In 2018 I was looking for additional concepts to add to my portfolio and was introduced to Capriotti at a franchise convention at Las Vegas“Gomez said.” I was offered a free sandwich and after my first bite of the famous Bobby sandwich, I got hooked. The loyal fan base coupled with the amazing food made my choice to invest in this brand a no-brainer. ”
Seeking a flexible and smaller footprint business opportunity, Gomez signed its three-unit franchise agreement with Capriotti’s in november 2019. The first location on Palm Avenue will be the brand’s debut in Central Valley. The demand for high-quality artisanal sandwiches in Fresno and the surrounding area is elevated – making it a Capriotti a perfect addition to the market food scene.
“We could not be more thrilled to have Javier join the Capriotti family, as his nearly three decades of experience in the restaurant industry and his proven track record of growing businesses into new markets are unmatched,” said declared David bloom, director of development of Capriotti. “New Fresno locations will bring our award-winning sandwiches to Central Valley and we can’t wait to see the reaction from our longtime new fans. ”
Founded in 1976, the Las Vegas The franchise based is most famous for its 40-year nighttime tradition of slowly roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and shredding them by hand each morning to present them in a variety of subs. This includes The Bobbie, the store’s acclaimed bestseller, featuring homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mayonnaise on a soft bun.
With the top 25 percent of stores on average $ 1.1 million average unit volume and an average initial investment of $ 420,000 with high growth potential, Capriotti’s is a profitable and rewarding franchise investment. The brand is backed by a corporate leadership team that offers an ongoing franchisee support program called CAPMastery. This online and field program provides extensive support to franchisees with marketing, retail sales, operations and growth strategies at every stage of their ownership. Going forward, Capriotti’s goal will be to continue to be an extraordinary franchise, whose franchise partners achieve exceptional returns by selling the tastiest and highest quality food.
