The Business Journal: Checkers & Rally's Eyes Mahoning Valley for Growth

The brand aims to add eight stores within the next four years as part of a large expansion plan for the community

Rally's is targeting Mahoning Valley for development in 2017. The brand previously had a presence in the market, and based on their recent success, aims to open as many as eight stores within the next four years.

"There were some closures in the past," Bruce Kim, Director of Franchise Development, told The Business Journal reporter. "Right now we're on the upswing."

Rally's is currently working with local business owners in the market to expand within Akron, Canton and Youngstown, utilizing Checkers* & Rally's new 4.0 Model. The new program helps streamline development while improving cost-effectiveness and offers three prototypes, including a model that uses recycled shipping containers.

"Not every community will allow a modular building or a repurposed shipping container," Kim told the reporter. "Sometimes the franchisee may not want that."

These new units can cost as little as $100,000, promoting rapid expansion for Checkers & Rally's current 838 nationwide locations.
