Greg Cutchall: Busy Multi-Unit Operator Takes on Another Brand

Greg Cutchall never expected to get into the restaurant business. As a youth growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, he saw how tough the business was on his father.

"My dad and my uncle had a couple of A&W restaurants and I saw how hard they worked and never had a lot of money so I told myself I would never get into the restaurant business," says Cutchall.

Funny how things change. He began working for KFC while he was in college and developed a catering program that the chain decided to implement nationwide. He seemed to be a natural fit for the business.

Cutchall began consulting and in 1986, when the owner of 12 local KFC's decided to retire, Cutchall put together a group to buy the stores. Three years later he formed a restaurant development company and the rest is history.

Today Cutchall owns and operates more than 50 restaurants in six states. His latest venture is brand new to the Omaha market. Twin Peaks is a restaurant concept on the grow and recently named a 2010 "Hot Concept" by Nation's Restaurant News. Cutchall has just opened the first Twin peaks in Omaha.

It's just the latest addition to Cutchall Management Company's stable of restaurants which also include Famous Dave's BBQ, Tin Star, Rock Bottom and Sonic, among others. His discovery of Twin Peaks was purely accidental.

He was in Dallas for the opening of a new Paradise Bakery. "The managers wanted to watch some football, so they took me to Twin Peaks. I walked through the door and knew it would be a hit in Omaha," he says.

The restaurant is known for its friendly, attractive Twin Peaks girls who serve ice cold draft beer and quality food in a mountain sports lodge setting. The brand was founded in 2005 in a Dallas suburb and now has 14 restaurants throughout the Southwest. Projections call for 50 percent growth in size in 2011.

The Twin Peaks menu features home-style dishes such as slow-roasted Rib Eye Pot Roast, grilled Meatloaf, and butter-brushed Flat Iron Steak as well as classics like hand-prepared Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, never-frozen Buffalo Wings in four flavors, made-to-order Chicken Fried Steak, and the signature Twin Cheeseburger with caramelized onions and a choice of five cheeses. Customers can view a variety of sporting events playing continuously on HD screens throughout the restaurants.

Cutchall converted his oldest Famous Dave's into his first Twin Peaks location. "We didn't really have a sports bar concept, so this was a really good fit," says Cutchall.

"People love great food, cold beer, sports and the Twin Peaks girls," he says. "There is no doubt in my mind that this restaurant will be wildly popular in Omaha."

Cutchall says that he eventually expects to open more Twin Peaks in neighboring cities.
