The new designs are projected to shorten construction times, and in many cases will cost less than traditional builds. They could save five to 12 weeks of development time and up to $100,000.
“Checkers & Rally’s is growing extremely fast, and with hundreds of territories still available in major markets across the United States, we’re committed to providing both existing and new franchisees new restaurant growth options that are fast and efficient in order to maximize their profitability,” said Rick Silva, CEO of Checkers & Rally’s.
The new designs are part of a growth strategy known as Checkers & Rally’s Model 4.0.
Franchisees can choose between three design plans when building new freestanding restaurants, including a modular building and buildings utilizing reclaimed shipping containers as structural supports.
Franchisees have already signed on to open restaurants using the new designs.
"The new 4.0 design options for freestanding restaurant building are modern, while keeping the iconic elements guests have come to expect from Checkers & Rally's,” said Checkers franchisee Angelo Freites.
