Addison Chosen As New Corporate Headquarters For Fiesta Restaurant Group









ADDISON, Texas, Dec. 4 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the nation's most successful restaurant operators has selected Addison as the location for its corporate offices.  Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc.

The company continues to operate brand offices in San Antonio and Miami and is in the process of hiring a team that will occupy over 20,000 square feet of office space at 14800 Landmark Boulevard.    

"We are pleased that another industry leader has selected Addison as its corporate headquarters," said Addison Mayor Todd Meier. "Our close proximity to Addison Airport, D/FW and Love Field create an ideal setting for a company like Fiesta with U.S. and international operations."

" Addison offered a competitive incentive package as well as a community with a rich talent pool for the restaurant industry," said Timothy P. Taft, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director of the Fiesta Restaurant Group. "The ability to recruit and retain talent as well as the city's central location and great amenities made Addison an ideal choice to continue to grow our business."    

"With the help of the Greater Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce, we were able to cultivate the relationship with the company," said Orlando Campos, Director of Economic Development for the Town of Addison.  "They are a perfect fit within our targeted industrial sectors, bring in high-paying quality jobs to the region, and have a great corporate culture that blends well with Addison."

The company plans to have approximately 55 employees in the corporate offices over the next three years. It received an incentive of $100,000 under the Addison Chapter 380 program.
