The Saxton Group. Founded in 1982 with just two Mazzio’s Pizza restaurants, The Saxton Group put its people at its center and was able to grow those two Mazzio’s locations into 50. In 2004, the Mazzio’s Pizza stores were sold, allowing The Saxton Group to fully focus on one objective: bringing the beloved McAlister’s Deli brand to Texas.
Once The Saxton Group opened its first store in Longview, Texas the path of introducing the McAlister’s brand to Texans didn’t just grow, it took off. Today, The Saxton Group operates 68+ McAlister’s Deli locations across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas. Over 25 of those locations are in the DFW metroplex.
In 2017, the company plans to open a record number of 10 stores. In the next two years, The Saxton Group will lead the McAlister’s Deli brand into a new territory and will introduce the brand to Nebraskans and Iowans for the first time.
The Saxton Group brings a hospitable and people-focused approach to each of its McAlister’s Deli locations; this outlook has propelled the company to one of the largest and most experienced multi-unit restaurant franchisees in the country. – less
