Houston Franchise Group Named Twin Peaks Franchisee Of The Year

Avalanche Food Group to be honored during upcoming IFA's Public Affairs Conference

September 12, 2011 // Franchising.com // ADDISON, Texas - Houston brothers Joe, Ricky and John Rosa and close family friend, Andrew Thomas, have been named Franchisee of the Year by Twin Peaks Restaurants and will be recognized on Sept. 13-14 at the International Franchise Association's (IFA) Public Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.

The group created The Avalanche Food Group in 2009 to purchase a Twin Peaks franchise after watching a news report on Nightline detailing new restaurant concepts that were thriving in a down economy.

"We were looking for the right concept to invest in," said Ricky Rosa. "After watching that special and meeting with Twin Peaks executive team, it was clear Twin Peaks was the right fit for us."

The Rosa brothers were no strangers to the restaurant business. Their parents owned an Italian restaurant, which the brothers helped run. Ricky had also owned and operated his own restaurants for more than 30 years prior to becoming a Twin Peaks franchisee.

Today, the group has one location near Houston and another scheduled to open this fall. The group plans to open an additional five restaurants over the next six years.

"The Avalanche Food Group is very deserving of this award," said Twin Peaks CEO Randy DeWitt. "They operate the most successful franchise location in our system and are excellent representatives of everything we stand for."

The 12th annual IFA Public Affairs Conference will take place Sept. 13-14 at the JW Marriott in Washington, D.C. The Twin Peaks franchisees will be honored on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Leadership & Franchisee of the Year Awards Dinner.

Named a 2010 "Hot Concept!" by Nation's Restaurant News, Twin Peaks has 15 locations throughout Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, and is scheduled to add six more by the end of 2011.
