Sandella’s Flatbread CafÃ© has finalized a deal with franchisee, Ronald Roan, to bring two units of the hit fast-casual concept to Birmingham, Alabama. With more than 130 locations operating, Sandella’s Flatbread CafÃ© is the largest flatbread concept in the world. Each of Sandella’s healthy and delicious menu items are built in four steps or less on its famous flatbread. Due to Sandella’s growing popularity, there are more than 400 restaurants in development across the U.S. and the United Arab Emirates.
Roan will add multiunit franchisee to his resume that consists of anesthesiologist, flight physician for international transports, and Air National Guard flight surgeon. Roan plans to open his first location by the Spring of 2009 and his second in 2010. He has not yet finalized real estate for his stores, but is scouting Birmingham for the best locations available.
