Così restaurant chain to open five locations in Costa Rica

April 9, 2012

Così Inc., a “fast-casual” restaurant company, last week announced that it has entered into a development agreement with a Costa Rican franchisee, Fast Casual S.A., to develop Così restaurants in the country.

The agreement calls for Fast Casual S.A. to develop five locations over five years beginning with their first location expected to open later this year, the company stated in a press release.

“We are excited to be growing the Così brand again with our new franchise partners, Fast Casual S.A.,” said Così President and CEO Carin Stutz. “I look forward to working with Luis Diego Escalante, Maria Cristina Escalante and their partners to successfully launch Così in Costa Rica.”

“Costa Rica is a leader in the trend towards healthy eating and we believe the Così brand fits well in this category,” said Luis Diego Escalante, a spokesman for Fast Casual S.A.

The restaurant’s menu features sandwiches, salads, breakfast wraps, soups, flatbread pizzas, snacks, desserts, and a wide range of coffee drinks and other specialty beverages.
