Fast-casual chain in expansion move

Newk’s Eatery is adding to its footprint.

The fast-casual chain announced an 18-restaurant expansion across Texas and Oklahoma over the next few years. Openings are slated for ten Dallas area locations, as well as eight Oklahoma locations throughout Oklahoma City, Norman, Moore and Stillwater. The company currently operates and franchises more than 120 restaurants in 16 states.

Full Belly Holdings, LLC, co-owned by Matthew Biggers and Cuyler Esposito, will develop the 18 new restaurants. The company currently operates three Newk's restaurants throughout the Dallas metro. Previously, Esposito was a franchisee of Tropical Smoothie Café.

"We're thrilled to continue expansion throughout Texas and Oklahoma with this exciting new development agreement," said Chris Cheek, chief development officer at Newk's Eatery.

Newk's Eatery, which features an open kitchen and uses no microwaves, specializes in hand-crafted salads, sandwiches and pizzas made to order. It also owns its own bakery.
