FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (March 13, 2018) – Miami Grill continues to sizzle like South
Beach due to an aggressive growth strategy that continues to fuel franchise expansion. Miami
Subs continues to transition to the upscale, fast casual format of Miami Grill, with a South Beach

check averages, far surpassing Miami Grill’s financial goals for the delivery platform.
