As the company looks to open additional locations in the area, they are actively seeking qualified franchisees to develop in the areas in and around Baton Rouge. Currently, McAlister's has 15 locations in the state of Louisiana. "Baton Rouge is in the heart of "McAlister's Country." We have had restaurants all over the Gulf Coast region for years, in both Louisiana and Mississippi, so it's only natural that we seek to open locations in this market," said Sturgis.
McAlister's had a successful year of franchise growth in 2015 with $548 million in system-wide sales, the opening of 27 new restaurants – some in new markets, including Chicago, Rochester, and Orlando – and nearly 60 commitments for new restaurants. This growth is fueled by both existing franchisees as well as new partnerships with experienced multi-unit franchise owners with notable portfolios.
The company has attracted a record number of franchise inquiries in recent years due to its quality leadership, healthy sales to investment ratio, and exceptional company performance.
