Where Traditions are as Important as Trends™
Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar® has developed a winning formula over the last 11 years. We're a restaurant that celebrates sports, not just a sports bar. We're a restaurant that celebrates our awesome bar products, not just a bar. We've taken the best attributes of a sports bar, entertainment hub and casual dining establishment to create a unique atmosphere that keeps guests coming back time & time again. We operate 5 locations in the Springfield/Branson MO area and will open our first free-standing site in August. We now have two franchises open--Bentonville AR & Kansas City MO (Lee's Summit). Both have been setting new sales records since their opening in March & May respectively.
We're Good At This
We've channeled our years of experience in the restaurant and bar industry into building a concept that stands out in the crowd, while never forgetting that it's the support of new and loyal customers that truly makes us who we are. Our premium quality menu items range from hand-cut steaks, pastas, appetizers, salads, soups, kid's meals and sandwiches to craft burgers -- plus a full bar featuring over 100 whiskeys, at least 20 beers on tap and 25+ large HD TV's! Now we're offering our awesome concept to exceptional operators across the globe.
Become a Legend in Your Own Market
With our 4 Opportunities Method, we offer guests marvelous food and drinks in a balanced, appealing environment for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night. As a Big Whiskey's franchise partner, you can proudly own a dining destination that features multiple ways to please your guests - and multiple ways to build your bottom line. Best of all, you can do it with confidence, backed by a founding team that is committed to the support of its franchisees.
We Stack Up Extremely Well to the Other Guys
Big Whiskey's compares remarkably well with other casual dining restaurants and, in many cost and revenue categories, exceeds both the industry segment average and our direct competitors. For instance, our sales to investment ratio is dramatically better than Chili's, Buffalo Wild Wings, Ruby Tuesday, Friday's, Texas Roadhouse and Applebee's. Our average ticket is higher and our investment per square foot is substantially lower than all these other brands.* In 2015, 4 of our 5 stores realized an average EBITDAR of $424,808 on average sales of $2,183,174 in a market population of approximately 280,000.**
With a flexible footprint, proven profitability and low start-up cost you have an immediate competitive advantage when you own a Big Whiskey's, not to mention an entertaining environment for your staff & guests. Most of our competitors focus on just one aspect of the restaurant experience--Big Whiskey's formula addresses every aspect equally, setting us apart from the typical sports bar or casual restaurant.
