Good Times on Tap for New York and North Jersey as Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery Expands

Nationwide Pub & Eatery to Introduce 15 New Pubs in Three Years

TEMPE, Ariz. - May 12, 2015  - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Authentic pub fare and craft beer with a side of sexy servers is growing their presence throughout New York City and Northern New Jersey. Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, a sports pub that pays homage to the old public houses of America, England, Scotland and Ireland, is pleased to announce the addition of 15 new pubs in the region over the next three years. The new locations will join four existing pubs throughout North Jersey in Wayne, Hamilton, Hoboken and East Brunswick.

The new Tilted Kilt pubs will open under the leadership of AARK Development Inc, led by Amol Kohli and Joseph Amodio, Tilted Kilt Area Developers and multi-unit franchisees. Already working toward the goal of 15 new pubs by the end of 2017, AARK Development’s next pub is slated to open in Monmouth Junction, N.J. in May, 2015 and will be situated at 4095 US 1.

“With an intimate knowledge of both the Tilted Kilt brand and the landscape of the entertainment restaurant industry in North Jersey and New York, our development team is primed and poised to grow in the region,” said Kohli. “With open territories all over New York and New Jersey, we are eagerly seeking local community and business leaders to bring this growing entertainment restaurant to their part of the region that is densely populated with our ideal customer base.”

Targeted development counties in New York, in which Kohli and Amodio are actively seeking franchise partners, include Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, Kings, Bronx, Richmond and New York City. Development counties in Northern New Jersey include Sussex, Passaic, Hudson, Essex, Union, Middlesex, Somerset, Monmouth and Mercer. With four successful pubs in North Jersey currently, Kohli and Amodio see this combined area as a strong market that has substantial growth potential.

“The New York metropolitan area is currently experiencing significant growth in both population and real estate development, making now an ideal time for Tilted Kilt to expand in the region. This market is also home to 11 professional sports teams, and Tilted Kilt is prepared to become the best place to watch any team play while enjoying an incredible atmosphere and a cold beer,” said Mark Hanby, Vice President of Franchise Development. “I am confident in Amol and Joe’s ability to grow the Tilted Kilt brand, expanding our footprint throughout key markets in both North Jersey and New York.”

With more than 100 locations open across the United States and Canada, the Tilted Kilt boasts sexy servers, classic Celtic décor, traditional pub fare and sports all under one roof. The architectural features at every location remind guests they are in a classy establishment. Dark mahogany wood fills the bar and the stained glass doors and wainscoting add to the charm. Combined with pool tables, dart boards and large plasma TVs, Tilted Kilt is the best place to watch sports and hang out with friends. Humorous and slightly bawdy limericks are even seen throughout the pub, creating an atmosphere that is fun and entertaining.
