Krystal will open its first franchise in Puerto Rico


Crystal, the original home of the southern slider, is entering new territories outside of the contiguous United States and recently announced its first franchise-owned international restaurant in Puerto Rico.

The first Krystal restaurant in Puerto Rico, slated to open this summer, will be located at The Outlet 66 mall in Canovanas.

Krystal Restaurants LLC has selected Caribbean Cattle LLC, led by entrepreneur Justin Tirri, as its franchise operator on the island and the deal is to continue to grow and expand the brand’s footprint in Puerto Rico.

The restaurants will feature the brand’s new design and service format.

“Our teams have worked hard to keep us on track for our aggressive expansion plans. It is incredibly exciting to see their efforts come to fruition, especially in our first international efforts,” said Thomas Stager, president of Krystal Restaurants LLC. “We are proud to bring our unique flavors and highly sought-after menu offerings to people outside of the United States and to welcome new partners, such as Caribbean Cattle LLC., to our organization. We look forward to growing with them and strengthening our presence in new markets.

Restaurants in Puerto Rico will feature Krystal’s signature square burgers, mouth-watering snacks and sides, handmade shakes and other favorites that have made the brand popular.

Tirri owns and operates a major shopping and family entertainment center in Puerto Rico and owns several restaurants.

“We wanted to bring a different concept to Puerto Rico, we found in Krystal a unique product for the whole family. We are very happy to add Krystal to our portfolio of activities and we know that the potential of locations in Puerto Rico is endless Our team led by Daniel Santiago, Luis Albino and other industry experts will be responsible for having one of the best franchises in the chain,” said Tirri.

In addition to Puerto Rico, the company also plans to open more than seven other locations in the coming year.
