Wienerschnitzel has opened a location in Springdale, Arkansas, It’s the second of 20 restaurants coming to the state, according to a press release.
The restaurant, under the helm of franchisee Tejas Dogs, is owned and operated by Mike Smith and Alvin Fults.
“Our first opening in Bentonville was bigger and better than any of us could’ve ever imagined,” Fults said in the release. “We were able to achieve fantastic results, having broken Wienerschnitzel’s opening day sales record across all locations several days in a row. It’s definitely been a journey to get to where we are today, but seeing guests line up for hours just for the chance to try our food made everything worth it. We’ve been able to capture this level of excitement because of the unique model — it’s a virtually untapped segment, with low costs, simple menu items and streamlined operations. It’s exactly what operators need, and I’m eager to see the kind of success we can garner as we head towards 20 locations.”
“The community response in Arkansas has been overwhelmingly positive,” Doug Koegeboehn, chief marketing officer for Galardi Group, the parent company for Wienerschnitzel, said in the release. “Tejas Dogs has proven to be a stellar operating partner, driving phenomenal sales each week since their initial opening in Bentonville. Given just how successful their first location has been, I have every confidence that they’ll generate the same excitement and buzz in Springdale. I look forward to watching this location become just as successful, and seeing their restaurant count grow over the coming years.”
Wienerschnitzel operates 340 units throughout 10 states. The brand has more than 32 units in various stages of development.
