Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar® Franchise Opportunity


Big Whiskey's is a company that really has its act together. Not every business can be franchised, most don't have an idea what it's going to take. They've taken the trouble to do things right, dotting every I and crossing every T.

Mark Siebert
iFranchise Group CEO

After researching a number of franchise opportunities we decided to go with Big Whiskey's rather than a more established chain. Why? We believe in the concept, their numbers are solid and the company has the right attitude when it comes to supporting its franchisees. They have proven, professional systems in place and they treat us as part of their family, not just another business deal.

Big Whiskey's
Where Traditions are as Important as Trends™

Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar exteriorBig 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 Stack Up Extremely Well to the Other Guys

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.**
