Locali, the wildly popular Los Angeles-based ‘healthy convenience’ concept, has recently signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with Viable Foods, LLC to expand the rapidly-growing brand into the greater South Beach/ Miami, Florida area. This deals marks the first expansion outside of California for Locali.
Franchisee Roy Casiano, who operates Viable Foods, LLC with his wife Deanna Snyder, has been working in the food industry for over 13 years holding positions in operations and management. Most recently, Casiano acted as General Manager for Estiatorio Milos, a chain of high-end Mediterranean restaurants with locations in Miami and Las Vegas, among others.
Since 2009, Locali has established itself as the largest and fastest growing health-conscious convenience concept in the market, and the only franchised natural food store with a healthy and organic-based deli menu. Offerings include made-to-order sandwiches, like the completely vegan “Badass Breakfast Sandwich,” which was named one of “LA’s 10 Best New Sandwiches” by Zagat, organic produce salads, chia bowls, probiotic smoothies, and other healthy options, many of which are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. The ‘healthy convenience’ store also offers grab-and-go options and a wide array of curated food items available for retail purchase.
Locali, in partnership with Fransmart, is looking for experienced, qualified franchise partners in the United States who are looking for an opportunity to become involved with the Locali brand, which yields great unit economics, small store footprint, low start up and food costs, and impressive margins.
