Randy Hayes is a proud part of a franchise group that is opening a Rally's this fall on Raymond Road in south Jackson.
Hayes has wanted to open a Rally's in South Jackson to help revitalize the area, spur economic development, provide jobs, and offer access to fast food.
"A Rally's is much needed in the area," he said.
The Rally's will be built from the ground up with some local contractors. This will be the sixth location for Randy's group, Coastal Express Inc.
Checkers & Rally's is a value brand with an extensive menu including hamburgers, hot dogs, and much more.
"We try to target the individual with $5 in his pocket to spend" said Bhagwandat, noting the average price of a meal is $6.50.
There are currently a total of 830 Checkers & Rally's locations, with 40-50 locations expected to open this year. The Jackson market specifically has room for another five to seven locations, not including surrounding suburbs.
"My management team is built from the inside, at least 97 percent of it," Hayes said. "The brand is motivating."To read the original article, click here.
