Greene Turtle Franchise to bring five new sports bar and grill restaurants to Fairfax
- October 6, 2010
Maryland-based Greene Turtle Franchising Corp. has signed an agreement that will bring five sports bar and grill restaurants to Fairfax County. The company did not disclose exact locations, but said it will seek properties along the U S. 1 corridor in the areas of Reston/Herndon, Tysons Corner, Chantilly/Centreville and Fairfax.
A newly formed franchisee group, GT Fairfax LLC, is behind the expansion and includes local investors. The group expects to open its first location next year, with the other restaurants opening by the end of 2014.
The Greene Turtle has been expanding in Virginia. It now has three open locations in Fredericksburg, Chesapeake and Leesburg. The franchise focuses on sports-themed restaurants with big-screen televisions, support for youth athletics programs and marketing programs with professional sports teams in the Washington-Baltimore area.
