Phoenix, Arizona-based D’Lite Healthy On The Go, which has six locations, is stirring up growth with a franchise development strategy in hopes of expanding to Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Colorado.
“We’ve always sought out nutritious food options to meet our health demands while we’re on the go, but struggled to find a quick-service restaurant that met our needs,” Co-Founder Brooke Knudson said in a company press release. “That’s what inspired us to launch d’Lite, to make access to healthy food convenient for everyone.
“After years of perfecting a concept that conjoins health-forward ingredients with carefully-crafted menu options for active consumers, we’re thrilled to enter this new era of growth for our business. With our robust plan in place, we’re confident in delivering a unique franchise opportunity to operators looking to grow their portfolios with a guest-facing and first-hand approach to restaurant operations.”
The concept caters toward consumers with different lifestyles and dietary preferences as menu items are flexible and are made-to-order. Options include breakfast sandwiches, coffee and protein shakes.
“The d’Lite franchise model has been built for operators sincere about building community bonds, no matter if they are three-unit investors or area developers,” Co-Founder Chad Knudson said in the release. “Our current operators have helped grow d’Lite into a local favorite that guests come back to daily because of the welcoming environment our team members create in each restaurant. We aim to grow our current footprint with new operators looking to build relationships in their communities, and move along the health-conscious movement in the quick service sector.”
