Investor Opens Rally’s In Walmart Across From Retailer’s Home Office

A Rally’s restaurant opened Monday (Oct. 30) inside a Walmart Supercenter at 406 S. Walton Blvd., across from the home office of the Bentonville-based retailer, and another Rally’s is expected to open by Black Friday inside a Walmart Supercenter on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Fayetteville.

The Bentonville location will be the flagship location for the brand inside of Walmart. Robert Bhagwandat, director of franchise development for Checkers & Rally’s Restaurants, said the company not only wants to be proud of the location, but also wants Walmart to be proud of it as the retailer’s executives frequent the store.

The Tampa, Fla.-based company wanted someone with a “high level of business acumen” to own the restaurant and vetted the franchisee before selecting Guy Mace, partner of TH Treats 1 LLC in Springfield, Mo., because of his background in business, Bhagwandat said.    MORE
