The chainâ€™s strong franchise program continues to attract investors, buoying rapid expansion.
SAN ANTONIO â€“ Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s, the fast-growing Mexican restaurant chain serving deliciously authentic dishes since 2001, has announced the newest addition to its expanding franchise network. The San Antonio market will see a 3-unit expansion through a new Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s area developer agreement with entrepreneur Steven Beckman.
Having served as a Chief Financial Officer for 15 years, Beckmanâ€™s transition to restaurant ownership was sparked by his love for Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s one-of-a-kind flavor-packed dishes.
Beckman explained, â€œWhen I was living in Las Vegas, I was a huge fan of the Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s at Centennial Hills. Then 10 years ago, I moved to San Antonio and have been missing those authentic Mexican dishes since. This inspired me to explore the chainâ€™s franchise opportunities. Today, Iâ€™m excited to launch my very own Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s restaurants and share the signature dishes and dining experience with the residents of San Antonio. I canâ€™t think of a better restaurant brand to start my entrepreneurial journey with.â€
Beckman envisions growing the Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s brand name across San Antonio. The chainâ€™s franchise program equips him to achieve exactly that. It includes proven operational models, systems and processes that franchisees could replicate with ease. They are crafted to ensure a consistently high-quality experience for customers while allowing investors to swiftly kick start their Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s restaurant and grow their business into a profitable venture. In addition, the program consists of comprehensive training and ongoing support for franchisees. Multiple sales channel options such as delivery and catering and authentic recipes that are already popular among customers also serve to strengthen franchisee success.
â€œWe are delighted to partner with Steven, who brings business acumen, a passion for Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s exceptional food, and enthusiasm to grow a new market. Itâ€™s rewarding to see a long-time customer turn into a franchisee, knowing they will share an authentic Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s experience with many others,â€ says Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s President Jennifer Howell.
The first San Antonio Oriâ€™Zabaâ€™s location is anticipated to open by early 2023, with future locations to follow. Two other Ori’Zaba’s franchisee locations opened in the Houston region in May 2022.
