UFood Grill, the award-winning fast-casual restaurant franchise where "delicious meets nutritious," has debuted a new prototype for a traditional in-line design that the company plans to franchise across America.

"UFood is at a historic moment in its history," said Sal Rincione, CEO of UFood Grill. "The brand has a great track record and has built tremendous customer loyalty through our non-traditional sites at airport food courts, military bases and government buildings. Our goal now is to take what has worked so well with food service operators and put UFood Grill on Main Street across America. Starting today, we are making the franchise opportunity available to the larger audience of franchise investors demanding award-winning restaurants that offer healthy dining options."

The new prototype was designed by Interior Systems, Inc. (ISI) and its Studio 500 team – one of the country's leading restaurant design firms.

The new prototype format averages 1800 square feet but is flexible enough to accommodate larger or smaller spaces in any shape. The design will provide dine-in seating for up to 36 guests.

UFood Grill plans to open one of the first locations in the greater Boston market by early 2016. The restaurant will be in close proximately to corporate headquarters to fulfill site visits for the growing list of franchise prospects attending UFood Grill Discovery Days.

"Our new prototype ushers in a new era for UFood Grill and will serve as a key for expanding the UFood Grill franchise network to more than 100 franchise locations over the next four years," Rincione added.

The company is targeting experienced restaurant operators and multi-unit franchise investors for franchise development. More information about UFood Grill franchise opportunities is available at ufoodgrill.com/own-a-grill/.
