US-based fast casual restaurant chain Überrito has revealed plans to open more than 100 franchise locations throughout Texas.

To this end, the restaurant chain has signed a Master Franchise Agreement with Ally Lakhpaty and SNL Franchise Development.

As per the agreement, new locations will be opened across Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, with plans to develop three corporate locations in the Houston market.

The Lakhpaty family has over 30 years of combined experience as a development agent and franchisee with Subway and Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream.

Ally Lakhpaty said: “Having been in this industry for many years, our family is fortunate to have developed a sense for the type of franchises that are built to last.

“Überrito is establishing itself as the premier franchise concept in the fast casual Mexican food segment, and we are honoured to have our family joining in their growth plans.”
