I Heart Mac & Cheese and More, the fast-casual concept specializing in made-to-order, fully customizable Build Your Own Bowls and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches kicked off the new year by celebrating the grand opening of its second Indiana location in downtown Indianapolis, the first of many scheduled for 2021.
This location marks lucky number two for franchisees Matt and Elizabeth Griffin, who opened their Westfield, Indiana location just last spring. The unique franchise concept is rapidly developing a national footprint with locations already open across south Florida, central Texas, and Indiana with many more set to open from coast to coast in 2021.
“We have a busy year ahead of us with dozens of locations slated to open, and even more breaking ground,” said I Heart Mac & Cheese and More CEO and Chairman Steve Giordanella. “Covid-19 undoubtedly had a hand in some delays last year, but we are seeing momentum and are looking forward to continued growth.”
