Diann Denault is looking to expand her Caribbean-theme business.
Denault plans to open a Cabana Charley’s Tiki Bar and Grill franchise in Woodridge. She currently operates the Cabana Charley’s restaurant in Sycamore, located at 1470 S. Peace Road. Denault said she hopes to open the Woodridge restaurant this summer.
‘It’s still in the planning stages, but it could be open as soon as sometime in the summer, possibly Aug. 1, if the stars align and things go our way,’ Denault said.
A company from New York sent Denault a letter last October encouraging her to franchise Cabana Charley’s. Denault said she was flattered by the company’s advise.
