Bobby's Burger Palace begins global expansion
Bobby's Burger Palace has launched its global licensing program, allowing expansion through new partners and new markets, according to a press release.
"I've spent the last nine years perfecting Bobby's Burger Palace," Founder and award-winning chef Bobby Flay said in the release. "We have been patient in developing the concept and have waited to grow more aggressively until we felt the concept and the business were ready. We are fortunate to have great growth potential with this brand, and we believe that we are now ready to work with licensing partners to bring our burger experience to our fans around the world."
Flay founded the concept in 2008 and it has 17 units in the U.S.
"With our many restaurants located across nine states and Washington, D.C., we believe we have a significant opportunity to grow the brand with partners in the U.S. and internationally," Laurence Kretchmer, managing partner at Bobby's Burger Palace, said in the release. "We have shied away from many licensing requests over the years because we did not feel it was the right time to expand. Today we are proud to say that our brand is ready and we look forward to working with partners to rapidly expand Bobby's Burger Palace."
