Italian chain Fazoli’s has long boasted it has more than 200 restaurant locations in the United States — but, according to its Twitter bio, “none in Arizona.”

That’s about to change.

The Kentucky-based company said it’s coming back to the state in 2022. Fazoli’s announced on Twitter on Thursday its plan to open nine locations. The first fast-casual restaurant is scheduled to open later this year.

Fazoli’s then-CEO Carl Howard told the Phoenix Business Journal in 2015 the chain left Arizona in 2008 because it was “failing miserably and underperforming.”

KJZZ News has reached out to Fazoli’s for comment.
