LAS VEGAS, Jan. 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop (Capriotti’s) and Wing Zone have left 2023 in the rearview mirror, but not before closing out the year with strong growth to show for both brands and a firm footing heading into the New Year.
Over the course of the past year, Capriotti’s inked 21 development rights agreements for a total of 55 total new restaurant locations, and welcomed the opening of 23 new sites. Wing Zone posted strong numbers as well, finalizing 16 new development rights agreements for an additional 38 franchise units, while opening 11 new operating restaurant locations to its system in 2023.
«2023 was one of the most competitive years to-date for the QSR landscape, with more franchise opportunities entering the fray and vying for the interest and investment of both seasoned and first-time franchisees than ever,» said Ashley Morris, CEO of Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop and Wing Zone. «To our good fortune, Capriotti’s is a proven model, with a culture, value, and guest experience that continue to put us over the top and ahead of the pack.»
This past year, both Capriotti’s and Wing Zone saw their first franchise locations take up residence on the historic Las Vegas Strip. Capriotti’s was also recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States in the 2023 Inc. 5000 listing, and both brands broke the top 10 on Fast Casuals ‘Top 100 Movers and Shakers List’.
Capriotti’s is most famous for its 40-year nightly tradition of slow-roasting whole, all-natural turkeys in-house and hand-shredding them each morning to feature in a variety of subs. This includes The Bobbie, the shop’s acclaimed best-seller, made with homemade turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mayo on a soft roll. Capriotti’s is backed by a corporate leadership team that offers a continuous support program for franchise partners through online and field programs, which provides significant support for marketing, retail sales, operations, and growth strategies through every stage of their ownership.
