Zalat Pizza, the cult-classic pizza concept developed by Khanh Nguyen, announces plans to open three more locations in the DFW area between July and September with openings in South Arlington, Irving and another Dallas location.
South Arlington will open at 5415 S. Cooper St, Suite 117, Arlington, TX 76017 on Monday, July 19, Irving will open at 4835 N. O’Connor Rd, Suite 136, Irving, TX 75062 in late August, and the newest Dallas location will open at 11613 North Central Expressway, Suite 111, Dallas, TX 75243 in late September. The three new locations will strictly serve takeout through Zalat’s website or delivery via third party delivery apps.
Zalat is rapidly expanding its footprint within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and these locations will put Zalat’s store count at 15.
Also in early August, the pizza brand plans to open a smaller footprint location at The Exchange Hall located in the AT&T Discovery District in Downtown Dallas offering a new take on their traditional concept. Going by the name Zalat Slices, the location will exclusively serve pizza by the slice, a first for any of Zalat’s stores.
The popular Hawaiian fast casual concept, Hawaiian Bros, has plans for massive growth in Texas, bringing the humble Aloha spirit with them. Each restaurant features a striking design and island vibe with a kitchen void of freezers, fryers and microwaves. Food is prepared fresh daily. The concept offers authentic island comfort food in the form of traditional Hawaiian plate lunches as well as sides.
The first Hawaiian Bros opened in Kansas City in 2018 by brothers, Cameron and Tyler McNie, and has quickly become a staple for those who are looking for unique, consistent, high-quality food in a fast casual setting. Prior to opening their first location, the brothers were personally taught traditional Hawaiian recipes and cooking techniques used by native Hawaiians for generations.
A college-town favorite is making its way to Dallas-Fort Worth. Fazoli’s is set to open three locations in North Texas late next year.
The fast-casual Italian concept’s expansion to Dallas-Fort Worth comes as part of an area development agreement between Fazoli’s CEO Carl Howard and Sajib Singha of Singha Group. Singha owns several Captain D’s, Dairy Queen, Golden Chick, Papa John’s and Schlotzsky’s locations throughout Dallas Fort Worth.

Proceeds will support “Chefs of Tomorrow” scholarship fund. Piehole Project will be held Oct. 12-25 at www.PieholeProject.org.
