Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, the growing Dauphin County-based casual restaurant chain, will open its third location in New England next week as part of a multi-unit franchise deal with the Mohegan Holding Co.

The Swatara Township-based franchise signed the 15-unit deal in 2014 with the Mohegan Tribe, owners of the Mohegan gambling empire

Mohegan already has opened Arooga’s restaurants in Connecticut and Rhode Island. The latest is opening Oct. 24 in Attleboro, Mass. It is expected to employ 75 to 100 people.

Arooga’s now has four franchise locations, with additional restaurants planned in Florida, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. Nearly 100 locations are in the works through the company’s franchise deals.

In addition to the franchise locations, Arooga’s has 10 corporate-owned restaurants in Central Pennsylvania. Last year, the company opened its new headquarters in Swatara Township.
