Located at 1300 E. Anderson Lane, Bld.

The iconic Italian brand partnered with Impact Hospitality Group and owner Mike Lokhandwala to franchise Fazoli’s newest ghost kitchen space, marking the third Fazoli’s in the Austin area, 15th in Texas and 214th systemwide. Lokhandwala is a multi-unit Fazoli’s franchisee who operates the brand’s first ghost kitchen location in Atlanta.

“We’re excited to open our second ghost kitchen in the heart of Austin,” Lokhandwala said. “Our first ghost kitchen has been a hit in Atlanta, so we couldn’t wait to bring this successful, convenient business model to more on-the-go consumers in another bustling city. When fans are craving Italian food, they can simply order delivery and get their favorite fast, fresh flavors and hot breadsticks delivered straight to their doorstep.”
