MIAMI, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GRILLiT, Inc. (the "Company" or "GRILLiT") (OTC Pink Markets: GRLT) announced that its master franchisor in Texas has executed a letter of intent with Rassier Properties-Greenlawn Crossing I to lease a 2,100 foot GRILLiT restaurant location in the Greenlawn Crossing Shopping Center in Round Rock, Texas. The parties expect to sign the definitive lease agreement within the next 30 days.
GRILLiT CEO Ghazi Hajj said that once the definitive lease agreement is executed, construction will begin immediately, with the grand opening slated for mid-summer 2015.
"As expected, our master franchisor in Texas, led by Bill Roberts, has put together an excellent plan to begin rolling out the GRILLiT franchise plan in that state," said Mr. Hajj. "We have high hopes that this location will perform very well. The restaurant location in Round Rock, Texas is approximately 20 miles north of downtown Austin, Texas in a shopping center anchored by an HEB grocery with several national chains such as GNC and Orangetheory Fitness. The space was the only vacant space available in the center and was formerly occupied by Starbucks, which moved to a stand-alone location in the same area."
Bill Roberts added, "I am convinced Texas is the perfect state to roll out this franchise brand. We have spent a lot of time and energy in determining the absolute ideal location for this important first GRILLiT location here in Texas, and we want this store to set the bar for financial performance for future Texas locations. Let's GRILLiT!"
