Currently, Miami Grill is operating primarily in South Florida, but has already started its International growth with restaurants open or currently under construction in Guyana, Malaysia, Panama, Myanmar and Ecuador. Saldanha is already in discussions with potential franchisees in 12 other countries and 20 more cities.
According to Richard Chwatt, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Miami Grill Group, the creation of Miami Grill International, Inc. aligns with both current developments and future plans for the company.
"The diversity of our brand has already brought success to our existing international franchises, and as we aggressively pursue more international locations, it makes sense to lay a foundation and put structure to our plans by forming a designated entity that brings laser focus to our goals," he said.
"Stephen is an exceptional leader with a demonstrated international track record," Chwatt added. "We look forward to partnering with him on our expansion goals."
