The formation of Miami Grill International, Inc. further boosts the fast casual chain’s commitment to the global market
Fort Lauderdale, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Miami Grill has further solidified its expansion into the global marketplace with the recent formation of Miami Grill International, Inc., and the appointment of International entrepreneur, Stephen Austin Saldanha as its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
Saldanha brings deep international perspective and experience to the Miami Grill expansion, and under his leadership, Miami Grill International will be responsible for the growth of the Miami Grill and Salad Creations operations outside of the USA.
Currently, Miami Grill is operating primarily in South Florida, but has already started its International growth with restaurants open or currently under construction in Guyana, Malaysia, Panama, Myanmar and Ecuador. Saldanha is already in discussions with potential franchisees in 12 other countries and 20 more cities.
According to Richard Chwatt, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Miami Grill Group, the creation of Miami Grill International, Inc. aligns with both current developments and future plans for the company.
“The diversity of our brand has already brought success to our existing international franchises, and as we aggressively pursue more international locations, it makes sense to lay a foundation and put structure to our plans by forming a designated entity that brings laser focus to our goals,” he said.
“Stephen is an exceptional leader with a demonstrated international track record,” Chwatt added. “We look forward to partnering with him on our expansion goals.”
