QDOBA Mexican Eats has announced the signing of a multi-unit franchise development agreement with multi-brand restauranteur Karan Gogri.
The agreement consists of 10 restaurants in San Jose, with a further five in San Diego; the first of which is scheduled to open next year.
“I’ve had my eye on QDOBA for years and it’s always been a dream of mine to franchise with the brand,” said Gogri. “With QDOBA’s handling of the pandemic and the incredible support provided to franchisees, in addition to the new restaurants formats that it’s introduced, I knew it was the perfect time to franchise with them. I’m looking forward to opening my first restaurant in the months ahead.”
Raised by a family of entrepreneurs, Gogri’s parents are also multi-unit franchisees with a portfolio included quick-service and pizza brands.
“The nation’s top franchise groups are taking notice of QDOBA in a very serious way,” said VP of franchise development, Peter Ortiz. “We’ve built a model that truly checks the boxes for franchisees, including high AUVs, flexible footprints, national brand awareness, and great ROI.
“Karan is exactly the type of franchisee we’re looking to work with as we ramp up our multi-unit franchise expansion efforts. We seek extensive restaurant and operational experience and the desire to grow with our winning concept.”
QDOBA’s franchise footprint is becoming increasingly diversified, with the brand recently unveiling several off-premise options for franchisees such as ghost kitchen formats and smaller takeout sites with locations as small as 1,000 square feet.
To date, the brand has more than 730 locations open across the U.S. and Canada.
