March 06, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – Twin Peaks Restaurants, the ultimate man-cave sports lodge, is growing its presence throughout Tennessee and Kansas thanks to extended development agreements with four current franchise groups.
The concept’s largest franchisee, La Cima, LLC, recently signed on for two more stores in Knoxville, Tenn., in addition to the group’s original deal for 35 restaurants. La Cima opened three Twin Peaks locations in the last 12 months and expect to open an additional two restaurants within the next two months.
CNG Restaurant, LLC, which has the rights to all of Nashville development and currently operates Twin Peaks in Brentwood, Tenn., signed on for an additional three restaurants in Memphis. Together, La Cima and CNG’s extended deals complete Twin Peaks expansion in Tennessee.
Additionally, Wichita franchise group, Le Grande Tetons, will add a second store to its Wichita territory, and KC Lodge Ventures, LLC, will add to the Kansas City market with a new location in Springfield, Mo. for a total of four new stores to be developed in the area over the next several years.
“We are excited to grow with our current franchise partners and continue to expand the Twin Peaks brand,” said Twin Peaks CEO, Randy DeWitt. “Thanks to experienced multi-unit operators like La Cima, CNG, Le Grande Tetons and KC Lodge Ventures, Twin Peaks is quickly becoming a national brand and will double its footprint by the end of the year.”
Twin Peaks opened its first locations in Nevada and Illinois earlier this month for a total of 31 restaurants open across 15 states. Twin Peaks Las Vegas opened as a Mega Peaks location with more than 14,000 square feet spread over three floors, featuring a mezzanine and a third-floor open-air patio and bar with room for a total of 400 seats.

Founded in 2005 in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville by successful restaurant veterans Randy DeWitt and Scott Gordon, later joined by Jack Gibbons to meet the needs of an untapped market, Twin Peaks features quality food and ice cold draft beer served by friendly and attractive Twin Peaks Girls in a mountain sports lodge setting.
