The McAlister’s Deli chain of restaurants was founded as recently as 1989, but it has already surpassed 350 locations. This is a chain that the US public has really taken to, and it’s one that has a very bright future as a result.
Here on Secret Menus we have a number of pages on McAlister’s Deli, showing you everything from the McAlister’s Deli menu to McAlister’s Deli nutrition information. The one thing we do not have, surprisingly, is a McAlister’s Deli secret menu, but that might change in the future. If you know of any hacked menu items or any ways to get more from this menu, then get in touch. If you give us the info we need then we would be more than happy to create this page and let other fans of this chain know what is lurking underneath the traditional menu.
McAlister’s Deli Locations
As mentioned above, there are a total of 250 locations in the United States, and this number is growing all of the time. It was first founded in Oxnard, Mississippi, and it has since spread to 26 states across the country. Most of these locations are franchises, and some franchisees own dozens of restaurants.
Such is the case with The Saxton Group, who have more than 65 franchise locations in total, hiring more than 3,000 staff throughout several states, many of which are in Texas.
McAlister’s Deli is also a subsidiary of Focus Brands. This is one of the reasons it has been able to grow so quickly and so easily. Focus Brands are one of the biggest food companies in the country; one that also lays claim to brands like Auntie Anne’s, Cinnabon and Moe’s Southwest Grill, among others.
McAlister’s Deli was actually founded over a decade before Focus Brand was first established, but since their founding in 2001 they have gone on to acquire several large chains and to lay claim to more than 3,300 restaurants.
