Restaurant chain to stay in the fast lane with expansion


Newk’s Eatery is on track with its plans to double in size in the next three years.

The Jackson, Mississippi-based fast-casual chain entered six new markets and increased its store count by 27% in 2015, opening 20 new locations. It currently operates 96 eateries in 13 states.

In addition to franchise-based expansion, the chain will intensify corporate growth. In 2016, Newk's will open its first company-owned restaurants in Orlando, Florida, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, and continue further expansion in Jacksonville, Florida.
