I Heart Mac & Cheese was founded in Florida by Steve Giordanella, an entrepreneur who opened the first location in 2016 and started franchising in 2019. The concept made its way to DFW in 2022. There are currently four locations in the DFW area, including Highland Village, Little Elm, Denton, and Frisco, with more than 42 locations across the U.S.

Local businessman Dr. Pratik Soni owns the North Richland Hills location. He also owns and operates Back in Motion Chiropractic in Carrollton. Dr. Soni, originally from India and now lives in Richland Hills, will run the I Heart Mac & Cheese with the help of his parents, who will be his managers. Dr. Soni says he invested in the franchise as he loves cheese. And really, most of us adore cheese, right?
