Norfolk restaurant chain launches franchise plans on Independence Day
An American diner chain celebrated July 4 in style by launching plans to establish more restaurants as part of a franchise scheme.
Bosses at Zaks, which has three restaurants in the Norwich area, hope to see the opening of its first franchise site in the next four months after launching proposals to expand the well-known Norfolk brand, which first began in 1976.
A classic Ford Mustang and Cadillac were on display tonight and the Norfolk Brawds roller derby team and an Elvis impersonator were in attendance for the official launch of the franchise plans.
Ian Hacon, chief executive of the Blue Sky Leisure-owned company, said they had already received expressions of interest from around ten potential franchise holders to take the Zaks brand outside of Norfolk.
