STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Globe Restaurant Group, Inc., has signed an agreement with Foodworks of Puerto Rico, Inc., for the exclusive rights to develop its Goodfella's Brick Oven Pizza & Pasta concept in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
According to a release, the deal marks Globe's third Goodfella's area development agreement signed in the past four months.
Foodworks president Gilberto Lopez said his company had looked at "several pizza and Italian food concepts, and we felt there was nothing as good as Goodfella's."
After opening Goodfella's in 1993, Globe started franchising the concept in 1998. Currently, there are seven Goodfella's open in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Globe has contracts for 21 others, including six slated to open by March 2003.
