The options for great food in western New York are endless. We know wings, beef on the hoof, and all the countless Italian restaurants, but there is something for everyone, including restaurants with a healthier menu.
It’s also cool when the local restaurants expand to places outside of western New York. One of the most popular restaurant chains in western New York State will expand to Syracuse and even Texas!
Rachel’s Mediterranean Grill has 11 locations in the Buffalo area and two more locations in Rochester.
According to Buffalo Business First, Rachel’s will be adding 10 new locations over the next year and a half and that includes an expansion to Texas!
The expansion will double the Rachel Mediterranean Grill locations, and the growing popularity of the fast-casual restaurant is testament to the Khoury family, who run Rachel’s.
I just had Rachel’s last week for lunch and it’s a great place for Mediterranean food. I love greens, grilled chicken, steak, rice, and pita bread and that’s exactly the kind of food you’ll find there.
I also think that so many restaurants in Western New York State could franchise outside of Western New York State. Mighty Taco and Ted’s would both be released elsewhere in America, although there is Ted’s Hot Dogs in Tempe, Arizona, and is a popular stop for Arizona State University students.
It’s great for Rachel!
