Fazoli's to return to Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Food lovers rejoice! Fazoli's is coming back to Huntsville.

The company announced Monday that the fast casual Italian chain has signed a franchise agreement to develop a new restaurant in Huntsville.

The closing of the restaurant's former location happened in 2003 due to failing health inspection scores, but developers say they're excited to bring Fazoli's back to the community.

Carl Howard, president and CEO of Fazoli's, said, "We are thrilled to expand Fazoli's presence in Alabama, which represents a key state for our brand's overall growth and development."

With nearly 220 restaurants in 25 states, Fazoli's is America's largest Italian fast casual chain.
