McAlister’s announces sales growth

The sweet tea, sandwiches and spuds really are that good.

McAlister’s Deli announced today its ninth consecutive quarter of positive comparable sales growth, according to a company statement.

Third-quarter same-store sales at company-owned restaurants were up 6.9 percent and franchise restaurants were up 7 percent.

According to a McAlister’s  spokeswoman, the growth is attributed to, “the restaurant chain’s commitment to offering quality food and genuine hospitality to guests.”

Founded in 1989 in Oxford, McAlister’s is currently owned by Roark Capital and plans to expand its franchises to additional cities in Arkansas, Colorado, Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
