Fazoli's cuts ribbon in McMinnville
Over 60 people gathered Monday at 4:30 p.m. for a ribbon cutting for Fazoli's.

A grand ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday at Fazoli's as the Warren County community opened its arms and welcomed Fazoli's to town.

It's the first Fazoli's for Bill and Gloria Townsend, who are veterans of the restaurant industry.

Monday was friends and family day where Fazoli's employees got a chance to fine tune their training to prepare for opening day. They served special guests at no charge to ensure everything is ready to go.

Doors open Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. to the general public.

It will be the 215th Fazoli's restaurant in the nation. A Fazoli's is opening simultaneously in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday.
