Flippers Pizzeria has reached a company milestone. A new unit in Winter Springs, Fla., is its first franchised location.
The company, which first opened in 1987, now includes eight restaurants in Central Florida. Four more are planned to open during the first quarter of 2011, including near the University of Central Florida.
In September 2010, Flippers Pizzeria executives and David Lo of Delocie LLC signed the company’s first multi-unit franchise deal. The new location in Winter Springs is part of this partnership and kicks off an anticipated busy year.
“We’re getting a high amount of interest from investors around Florida and other parts of the country. It’s very exciting,” said Don Howard, president of Flippers Pizzeria. “We’re proud to welcome David Lo and his team to the family, and we look forward to developing a very successful partnership.”
