Rumbi Island Grill said Wednesday that it plans to franchise the restaurant brand nationally, with the goal of opening 100 to 125 stores in the next five years.

The region west of the Mississippi is the primary target for expansion, but Rumbi Island Grill President Stuart Gee said the Sandy-based company will consider all offers.

The first Rumbi restaurant opened in 2000 in Salt Lake City on 400 South. There are now 12 Rumbi restaurants in Utah, five in Arizona and six in Colorado.
