    Deals are in progress for three Thai Express locations and two Ginger Sushi Boutiques, says Ray Zandi, U.S. vice president of business development for MTY Group.

    Thai Express delivers authentic, high-quality, from-scratch dishes. Food is prepared in woks over an open flame in front of guests — in three minutes or less, Zandi says.
