Zaxby's Multi-Unit Operators Sign Deal To Open 3 Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux Locations
Eddie and Alan Gant are brothers in business. The duo operate two successful Zaxby’s locations in Mississippi and have just signed an agreement to bring several Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux Restaurants to the state. The three-unit deal will see Walk-On’s locations in Starkville, Meridian, and Tupelo over the next four years.
The two men are no strangers to business operations. Eddie has more than 21 years’ experience as a real estate investor and commercial real estate lender in Texas. Alan has more than two decades of experience in commercial and consumer lending, real estate lending, and bank management, and currently serves as the President of GantGroup Properties, Inc.
“We have always been attracted to Walk-On’s brand strength and company culture,” said Alan. “Even amid the pandemic, it was refreshing to see the brand quickly innovate and adapt to support its franchisees and continue to support its communities safely in a time of need. Seeing the franchise system come together and weather the storm just served as another reminder that this was the brand we wanted to invest in and grow with, and we can’t wait to debut our new locations next year in Mississippi,” added Eddie.
Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux was founded in 2003 by Brandon Landry, a former walk-on basketball player at Louisiana State University. The brand is expanding across the United States with 37 locations open and another 150 in development. Its Louisiana-inspired menu combines food and drinks made from scratch, daily.
