Hurricane is pursuing aggressive national expansion, opening five casual inline units early this year with 69 more to come in Missouri and Illinois. A new area development pact calls for units in New York City's boroughs and Westchester and Fairfield Counties plus one in Suffolk County opening this fall. A new re-branding design for both interiors and menus moves away from a tropical theme to a "Beach Life" look.
