Tony Roma's (US) Continues European Expansion

28 Aug 2018 - Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma's, announces its newest location in Porto Pi, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Located in the oldest mall on the popular Avenida de Garbiel Roca, Tony Roma's will greet its guests with picturesque bay views and the world-famous ribs fans from all over know and love. This is the second Tony Roma's restaurant for franchisee Angel Plaza Palma of Daytona Ribs, S.L., who also opened a Tony Roma's in Madrid.

"We are excited to be a part of this opening, as it will be the first major restaurant in this area," said Angel Plaza Palma. "We truly believe Tony Roma's will thrive here, and this opening will amplify the brand's international presence. We, above all, look forward to continuing to value the Tony Roma's name in Spain."

The island of Palma de Mallorca brought in more than 200 million visitors over the last century, making it a prime location for Tony Roma's newest restaurant. The restaurant will feature 120 outdoor seats, and 80 indoor seats for guests who prefer to take a break from the Mediterranean sun. Inside the restaurant, guests will find TVs located in the main room and kids' room, as well a TV in the bar area. The bar will feature full liquor, wine, and beer selections. The restaurant will be open daily for lunch from noon to 4 p.m. and dinner from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., with weekend closing hours of 12:30 a.m. The Palma de Mallorca opening marks the 27th Tony Roma's in Spain.

Tony Roma's is experiencing exponential energy and growth since leading multi-brand company, Beer & Food, took control as the master franchisee in March 2018. "We are honored to be opening another location in the beautiful country of Spain," said John Brisco, President Global Franchise of Romacorp, Inc. "Palma de Mallorca is a city rich in culture, entertainment, and history and we look forward to introducing the people of this island to the unique cuisine of Tony Roma's."
