McAlister’s Deli began with a simple idea – hearty-size portions of handcrafted deli fare, served fast with Genuine Hospitality. Founded in 1989 in a converted gas station in Oxford, Mississippi, McAlister’s quickly won over customers with personal service and great food. Today, there are more than 400 McAlister’s throughout the U.S. serving up made-to-order sandwiches, fresh salads, Giant-sized spuds and delicious sweet tea, in an environment that provides guests a community gathering place and invites them to relax and stay a while.
McAlister’s not only provides quality food made from the finest and freshest ingredients, but also outstanding guest fulfilment. As a result, we offer remarkable unit sales volumes and an attractive sales-to-investment ratio in the fast casual restaurant segment.
