COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - October 15, 2013) - Gosh Enterprises, known for its Charley's Grilled Subs and Charleys Philly Steaks restaurant concepts, has signed a development agreement to open 25 locations in Russia with the partnership of Aurelian Brand Development (ABD) and Oriando Limited. ABD is a part of Aurelian Global Holdings.
The agreement will pioneer the launch of the Charleys Philly Steaks brand into the Russian market. ABD, which develops American retail and food and beverage brands in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and South America, owns several other fast casual restaurant concept franchises.
"We are excited to collaborate with Gosh Enterprises to bring this tremendous brand to the Russian consumers. Outside of being a leader of its segment in the American market, Charley's has clearly demonstrated to be a successful brand on a global scale and Russia should only continue that trend. We believe there is a void in the Russian market for quality, grilled sandwiches and we are certain that Charley's is the perfect brand to fill it," said ABD's Director of Business Development Nicole Sweat.
In 1986, the love of Philly Cheesesteaks inspired the opening of the first Charleys restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. Its grilled-fresh-to-order Philly Cheesesteaks are made from 100 percent USDA choice steak, all-white meat chicken breast, 100 percent dairy cheese and produce prepared fresh daily. Also known for its signature lemonades and gourmet fries cooked in 100 percent soybean oil, the Charleys brand has grown its footprint across the world with over 500 locations in 47 states and U.S. territories, and in 20 countries. Charley's Grilled Subs/Charleys Philly Steaks are concepts of Gosh Enterprises, Inc. For more information, visit www.charleys.com.
