From the article:
“Clevelanders are plenty familiar with Rascal House, a concept that has been a local staple for nearly 40 years. In mid-March, the company revealed that it was launching a franchise expansion plan to build out the Ohio market and beyond. Company president Niko Frangos has started accepting applications for Cleveland, Columbus, Akron, Toledo, and Cincinnati. The brand is also registered and approved to sell franchises in Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Frangos said he believes Rascal House, which specializes in pizza, burgers, fries, subs, salads, and wings, could open three to four stores this year and as many as 15 in the next 24 mounts.
