Elkhart Owners Named 'rookies Of The Year' At National Conference

ELKHART, IN (Tuesday, June 06, 2006) - Local entrepreneurs, Dave Risner and Jim Welling, (owners of the Beef 'O' Brady's at 56199 Parkway Avenue, Suite 7 in Elkhart) recently received the "Rookie of the Year" award at the National Beef 'O' Brady's franchise conference. The award recognized the franchise partners for their overall success since opening their doors one year ago and their expanding role as a "community partner" throughout the Elkhart and South Bend regions. "I'm proud of our staff and the job they have done to make Beef 'O' Brady's an integral part of Elkhart. Already, we have created ties with Concord Little League Baseball, local high school football, the Elkhart Sports Center and Elkhart school athletics," said Jim Welling. "Customers who come into our Beef 'O' Brady's feel immediately at home with Indiana sports memorabilia, kid's baseball cleats and Elkhart school banners on the wall. Every Beef's tells a story about their community, and we are no different." The Beef 'O' Brady's is part of a fast-growing family-friendly sports pub/restaurant franchise that thrives on close connections to local schools, sports teams and other organizations – bringing a family-friendly element to the traditional sports pub concept with multiple TVs, arcade games and a casual dining experience. Beef 'O' Brady's is the center for local community involvement, regularly hosting Little League sign-ups, school and church fundraisers, sport awards dinners and other local functions. In fact, with community involvement at the cornerstone of the Beef 'O' Brady's national franchise concept, Risner and Welling have committed to a "way of life" that requires participation with local schools, athletics and other community organizations. "Dave and Jim were excellent franchisees right out of the gate," said Nick Vojnovic, President of Beef 'O' Brady's. "From the initial sale of the franchise, through training, opening and their first year of operations, these partners set the highest standard for new partners." About Beef 'O' Brady's Beef 'O' Brady's is a fast-growing national chain of family sports pubs that achieves its success by building relationships with the local schools, youth sports leagues, and other community organizations in each and every Beef 'O' Brady's neighborhood market. The "kid appeal" of this unique concept is reinforced by a very moderately priced kids menu and video games. Ironically, despite what the name implies, Beef 'O' Brady's is actually best known for its Buffalo-style chicken wings. Beef 'O' Brady's opened 38 new restaurants in 2005 and recently opened their 200th location. Beef 'O' Brady's plans to open 51 locations by the end of 2006, bringing its total number of locations to 247 nationwide. Visit www.beefobradys.com for more information.
