Carrols Restaurant Group CEO Daniel T Accordino said: “We are pleased to complete this transaction which adds to our existing presence in the attractive mid-Atlantic region.

“These restaurants have average sales volumes of over $1.8m, higher than our system average, and should be highly accretive as we integrate them with our existing operations.”
