Yafo is killing it in SouthPark.

The Mediterranean street food fast-casual restaurant opened in June and has quickly become a staple under owner restauranteur Frank Scibelli’s leadership.

YAFO – new fast casual restaurant in SouthPark

It’s now looking to expand to a second location.

Planning is still in the very early stages, but Plaza Midwood has emerged as an early favorite. Scibelli told the Agenda that he’s already familiar with the submarket (Midwood Smokehouse got started there, for example). “The market gets what we do,” Scibelli said.

South End is also a possibility. No leases have been signed yet, so this is still a ways off. But when it does open, expect it to dominate in its new location as well.
