Syracuse's Carrols Corp. will get a shout-out -- but not for  Reply with quote  

Stephen D https://www.losangeleskingsofficialstore.com/13-Jeff_Carter_Jersey. Cannerelli / The Submit-StandardRachel Schmidt serves a wholesome at the drive-by way of at the Carrols Restaurant Group-owned Burger King on Thompson Street in DeWitt in 2004.
Syracuse, NY -- "Press shy" is a polite way to describe Syracuse-primarily based Carrols Corp.-connection with the information media. The hometown business which operates hundreds of dining establishments -- such as the Burger Kings all around the region -- never ever appears for publicity and when asked, rarely responds to inquiries from reporters. Restaurant opening? No response. Restaurant closing? No response.

On the latter, we'd heard for weeks the BK in B'ville was shutting down (it has). I'd tried to chase down data on it as did a colleague right here at The P-S. We could get extremely minor.

Appears like the identical can be mentioned for the reporting of the following in QSR Magazine (QSR stands for "fast-serve restaurant"). The report highlights what the magazine considers "the prime ten (quick-serve restaurant) chains with fewer than 300 units."

At No. seven is Taco Cabana, one particular of the 3 chains operated by Carrols.

Here's that portion of the write-up:

Taco Cabana

It is simple to tell that Taco Cabana was born in San Antonio, Texas. In 2008, 142 of the chain's 147 dining establishments operated in Texas, primarily in Houston, exactly where more than 40 Taco Cabana restaurants were temporarily closed following Hurricane Ike swept by way of the region.

Despite its hefty presence, Texas is far from saturated, says Alan Vituli, chairman and CEO of Taco Cabana's owner, Carrols Restaurant Group in Syracuse https://www.losangeleskingsofficialstore.com/17-Mike_Richards_Jersey, New York, which also owns Pollo Tropical and operates several Burger Kings.

The economy, even so, is possessing its impact on advancement https://www.losangeleskingsofficialstore.com/9-Drew_Doughty_Jersey. Vituli in a press release announced programs to limit discretionary capital paying in 2009, anticipating total capital expenditures across the firm at $20 million to $30 million with new unit growth reduced from 2008.

Any additions will undoubtedly adhere to the existing model, which is three,200 square feet and freestanding with an outdoor patio.

2007: 147
2008: 153


Yearly Sales:
$239.one million

Common Sales
$1.656 million

For the record, Carrols' Taco Cabana joins some familiar and esteemed names in that Leading ten group, including the California-renowned burger chain, In-N-Out, as nicely as Fuddruckers, Au Bon Pain and P.F. Chang's China Bistro fancy spinoff, Pei Wei Asian Diner.

Here is the record:

one. Jason's Deli
2. In-N-Out
three. Fuddruckers
four. Baja Fresh Mexican Grill
five. McAlister's Deli
6. Pei Wei Asian Diner
seven. Taco Cabana
8. Au Bon Discomfort
9. Taco Bueno
ten. Eat'n Park

Although I am not familiar with all of these chains, it seems to me Carrols is in rather excellent business. I am not quite certain why Carrol is and stays so press-shy. This would be good news to get out there, even though CNYers are hundreds of miles away from Taco Cabana, a chain acquired by Carrols in 2000, two years after it bought its other restaurant chain, Pollo Tropical, whose dining establishments are mostly in Florida.

On to...


zelda30 remarks. "Concerning the cost-free antibiotics, when I was downstate over the holidays I heard a commercial for the exact same plan at Stop & Shop supermarkets."

The grocery chain I wrote about, Giant Meals, is owned by the identical firm that owns the End & Store chain. That company is Royal Ahold, which utilised to also very own Buffalo-primarily based Tops Kings Jerseys.

That is all.

Speak to me.
