  • Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) August 13, 2014 - Southern Deli (SD) Holdings, LLC, a Charlotte-based franchise operation, has been honored as one of the top franchise operations in the country, earning a spot on the Franchise Times' Restaurant 200. In the list of the nation's largest restaurant franchisees released earlier this week, SD Holdings captured the 168th spot, falling in line with franchisees producing $50-60 million annually.

    "Pride and excitement don't even begin to explain how we feel about earning a spot among the nation's top restaurant franchisees," said Yaron Goldman, CEO of SD Holdings. "Plus, jumping from rank 180 in 2013 to168 in 2014 is really encouraging for us to continue to grow so we can continue climbing the ranks and capture an even higher spot next year!"

    At the time the list of top restaurant franchisees in the country was compiled, SD Holdings owned and operated approximately 39 McAlister's Deli stores in four states. They have since grown in volume and production to 47 stores and have just expanded into a fifth state. SD Holdings plans to expand even more in the remainder of 2014 with at least five more McAlister's Deli locations, as well as bringing an all-new franchise operation to the Southeast with MOD Pizza.
