Bar Louie announced today plans to expand in California, with a focus on the San Diego market. Due to the success of its Arizona and Colorado locations, the company is actively seeking qualified candidates to open new restaurants along the West Coast over the next few years.
This is part of Bar Louie's national expansion plan to target specific communities throughout the country. The company has plans for nearly 100 new corporate and 100 franchise locations across the U.S. within the next five years.
"This is an exciting time for Bar Louie as we are expanding to California for the first time," says John Neitzel, chief executive officer of Bar Louie. "As we continue to expand, our goal is to develop profitable businesses for franchisees and provide top-shelf service to local communities throughout San Diego. We invite entrepreneurs interested in owning their own bar/restaurant to join our system and benefit from the support of a proven business model."
With more than 80 Bar Louie locations across the country, the brand is dedicated to remaining a national brand with local appeal and delivering an unforgettable experience to every guest.
To fuel this growth on the West Coast, the company is seeking experienced multi-unit foodservice and retail operators with a passion for the industry who demonstrate community involvement and will be committed to day-to-day operations. Qualified franchisee candidates should possess a minimum net worth of $3 million and liquid assets of at least $1 million. Bar Louie franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $410,000 - $3 million.
