Checkers to Open 14 Locations in Philadelphia by 2018



    Checkers plans to open 14 new locations in Philadelphia by 2018. Late-night business accounts for 30 percent of business, Durham said.

    Checkers Drive-In Restaurants Inc. signed a development agreement with a local franchisee in order to expand its growth in the Philadelphia market, almost doubling its restaurant base from 23 to 40 by 2018.
