(Market Wire)–Spicy Pickle Franchising, Inc., operator of the fast casual restaurant chains Spicy Pickle in the U. S. and Bread Garden Urban Café in Canada today announced the opening of a second franchisee restaurant in downtown San Diego directly across the street from Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres major league baseball team. The franchisee that owns this newest restaurant has a multi-restaurant development package. There is a third Spicy Pickle restaurant in San Diego County in Poway that is owned by a different franchisee. These three restaurants that are opened along with the Spicy Pickle under construction in Temecula will give Spicy Pickle a four restaurant footprint in Southern California.
Marc Geman, president of Spicy Pickle, noted, “It is gratifying, especially under current economic conditions, to start up with a new franchisee in a new market so we are particularly pleased to be working on a new Spicy Pickle restaurant in Billings. It is also very satisfying to have franchisees that are getting financing to be able to move ahead with building programs. In addition, we have activity in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada where we anticipate being able to announce something shortly. Our existing Bread Garden Urban Cafes in Canada are gearing up for the winter Olympics in February in Vancouver and on Whistler Mountain.”
The new San Diego location is located at 317 10th Ave., in San Diego. This is the second downtown San Diego restaurant for this franchisee. The first is on 303 W. Beach Street.
