Florida Expansion Continues
Wilmington, NC (RestaurantNews.com) Charlie Graingers Hot Dogs Brisket and BBQ based out of Wilmington, NC continues their expansion in the Panhandle by announcing the grand opening of their newest location in Panama City Beach, Florida at 13312 Front Beach Rd. with franchisees Steve and Sylvia Byron.
In the Fall of 2015, the Byrons moved to Panama City from Nashville, TN to begin their partnership with Charlie Graingers. “It has been a labor of love in getting our business started, “ said Sylvia Byron. “This truly is an adventure that Steve and I look forward to sharing with Panama City. Get ready to crave!” Steve will be dedicating the store opening in the memory of his dad, Burt Byron who would have loved to open “a hot dog joint.”
Charlie Graingers now has secured commitments for over 350 franchising agreements for their restaurants throughout the southeast. Florida in particular has become a very attractive place for Charlie Graingers. Already having established commitments throughout central Florida, the new store openings allows Charlie Graingers to raise brand awareness in the Panhandle.
“Our growth in Florida continues to be outstanding, we think our brand will have an immediate and lasting impact. We are anxious for the Byrons to introduce Charlie Graingers to the Panama City Beach area” says CEO, Jason Nista.
Charlie Graingers is a unique concept with a “Classic Americana” restaurant atmosphere; specializing in hot dogs, brisket, bbq, and turkey salad. Charlie Graingers is a revamp of the original Peacock Alley restaurant founded in 1939 in downtown Wilmington, NC. Keeping in the tradition of the original Peacock Alley, Charlie Graingers serves homemade food in a fast-paced atmosphere.
Charlie Graingers plans to continue their expansion in the Southeast through 2016 and begin to grow into the neighboring states in 2016 and 2017. They continue to actively recruit Area Representatives, Multi-Unit Operators, and Individual Store-Owners alike.
