HOUSTON – Eskimo Hut, a chain of drive-thru convenience stores specializing in frozen daiquiris and margaritas to-go, said it has signed several multi-unit store development agreements that call for 27 new units.
The chain, which already has 27 units across Texas, plans to open the first of its new locations by October 2015 in Lubbock. Other areas to be developed include Arlington, Bryan/College Station, Copperas Cove, Fort Worth, Granbury, Killeen, San Antonio and San Marcos.
“We value all of our franchisees that are on the ground facing everyday challenges to make their businesses succeed,” said Scott Haehnel, the vice president of franchise and business development for Eskimo Hut.
“We make it our responsibility to reflect what life really means and what’s really important, and to always focus on what matters,” he said. “Everything reflects upon our principles and our culture, a culture of hospitality that can translate internationally. We focus on the people that make us successful, the reasons why people join our family and protect those values.”
Consumers can also look forward to seeing new store designs as Eskimo Hut begins work with Studio Red Architects, Houston, to create stores with a unique style and more functionality.
“We strive to create an exciting atmosphere for our guests and our employees by initiating a more inviting experience to both shop and work,” said Kevin Morgan, CEO and founder of Eskimo Hut.
Based in Houston, Eskimo Hut opened its first store in Amarillo, Texas, in 1996.
