Muscle Maker Grill®, a fast-casual restaurant franchise that serves freshly prepared meals with your health in mind, announces that on Tuesday, Jan. 14, it will open a new restaurant at 1840 W. Main St.
It will be the second Muscle Maker Grill restaurant in the state.
The St. Charles restaurant will be owned and operated by local native Jose Venegas and Chicago resident Jeff Cade. Recognizing a void in the area for healthy, convenient food options, the pair seized the opportunity to bring Muscle Maker Grill to St. Charles.
“St. Charles is populated with athletic and health-oriented facilities and the residents lead a very active lifestyle,” said Cade. “Muscle Maker Grill is the perfect addition to the area and offers a concept unlike any other by blending healthy ingredients and cooking methods with tasty flavors.”
Cade and Venegas bring years of hospitality education and foodservice industry experience to Muscle Maker Grill. Prior to deciding to open a Muscle Maker Grill restaurant in St. Charles, Venegas served as the Store Manager of the nearby Rolling Meadows location. In addition to overseeing daily operations, he received training for all staff positions which he is confident will prove valuable at the St. Charles restaurant.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jeff and Jose to our team of dedicated franchisees and I am confident their experience coupled with passion for the community and the Muscle Maker Grill concept will be a recipe for success,” said Rod Silva, founder of Muscle Maker Grill. “We are also pleased to announce our Illinois expansion and look forward to bringing more locations to the state in the near future.”
Founded in New Jersey in 1995 by Silva, Muscle Maker Grill prides itself on creating healthier versions of mainstream favorite dishes that taste great, making it easy and enjoyable to eat healthy. The menu at Muscle Maker Grill features lean, protein-based dishes including, fit salads, wraps, sandwiches, power pastas, and guiltless entrees, as well as fruit smoothies and protein shakes in an assortment of flavors. Each restaurant offers catering, take-out and delivery services for the convenience of its customers.
