Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom signed a four-unit franchise development agreement to open new restaurants in South Carolina in Greenville, Spartanburg and Horry counties.
The new restaurants will be owned and operated by CRG Pizza, Inc., comprised of long-time entrepreneur Brent Collier and his daughters, Lori Collier and Elise Collier Massey.
A restaurant industry veteran and well-respected multi-unit operator, Brent Collier brings a wealth of knowledge from his five decades of experience to Old Chicago. He’s owned a variety of franchises throughout his career, including The Melting Pot, Quaker Steak & Lube, Golden Corral and TGIFridays, all of which he still owns today. Following the development of his first restaurant in Myrtle Beach, slated to open at the end of 2016, Collier will open additional locations in Greenville and Spartanburg over the next three years.
A growing brand with over 16 years of successful franchise partnerships, Old Chicago is an established multi-unit concept with proven processes to support franchisees with site selection, lease agreements, facility design, operational training and marketing.
