Houston's Guillermo Perales has plans to open 15 more fast food chain locations in Houston.
Perales, who helped bring Krispy Kreme doughnuts back to Houston last year and is CEO of Turbo Restaurants LLC, reached a new development agreement with Atlanta-based Arby’s Restaurant Group Inc. on Feb. 4 to open the storefronts.
The restaurants will be rolled out around the city over the next 5 years. Arby's currently has only six locations in Houston. Perales and Turbo Restaurants also partnered with Arby's to open 15 new restaurants and remodel 12 in Dallas.
“Guillermo Perales of Turbo Restaurants is among a select group of premier franchise restaurant developers in the country, and we’re excited about his commitment to expand with Arby's in Texas," Greg Vojnovic, chief development officer at Arby’s Restaurant Group, said in a statement.
Perales, who is also president and CEO of Dallas-based Sun Holdings LLC, brought Krispy Kreme back to Houston in November 2015 to a great deal of fanfare.
The franchisee struck a deal with Krispy Kreme in December 2013 to open 10 Houston-area stores. So far, two have opened on Westheimer and Highway 6, respectively. Plans for locations at 3055 S. Loop W. near NRG Stadium and at 4061 Spencer Highway in Pasadena are also underway.
