Fazoli’s restaurants are coming back to Middle Georgia with familiar owners.
C&P Restaurant Co., a franchise group owned by Allen Peake and Mike Chumbley, has signed a six-unit development agreement for Fazoli’s in Georgia, according to a news release.
“C&P is looking for sites and expects to open its first unit by the summer of 2016,” Peake said in the release.
It plans to open restaurants in Macon, Warner Robins, Athens, Augusta, Columbus and Savannah.
The deal brings the partners full circle. As executives and minority owners of RMS Family Restaurants, Peake and Chumbley operated 12 Fazoli’s in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, the release stated. RMS sold its Fazoli’s restaurants in 2000, and they eventually closed.
C&P, based in Macon, also is a Captain D’s and Cheddar’s franchisee.
“We always knew that we wanted to again be part of Fazoli’s, and now the timing is right,” said Peake, who is a state representative. “Fazoli’s did very well in Georgia, and we expect to be even more successful this time.”
