MIAMI, Apr. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GRILLiT, Inc. (the "Company" or "GRILLiT") (OTC Pink Markets: GRLT) today announced that its newest Texas franchisee, Grillit Round Rock, LLC, has executed a lease for its first store location near Austin, Texas. The lease comes on the heels of the execution of the franchise agreement recently signed with Grillit Round Rock (announced April 21) and will mark GRILLiT's initial presence in the state of Texas.
The agreement with Rassier Properties calls for a 10-year lease of the 2,100 square foot space located at 603 Louis Henna Blvd, Suite B100, Round Rock, Texas. Construction within the space is slated to begin in early May 2015, and project opening by July 30th, 2015 or sooner.
"This is a perfect location for our first foray into Texas," stated GRILLiT CEO Ghazi Hajj, "and we couldn't be happier with this location that our franchisee has found near Austin. It is across the street from Dell Computers Corporate offices and Headquarter and located in an area of high population growth, and the shopping center where it is located provides very high visibility. I expect success for this store, and I'm hopeful it will quickly lead to more locations in other Texas cities.
