March 08, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - Twin Peaks, the mountain lodge-style sports restaurant known for its man-cave setting and friendly Twin Peaks Girls, recently opened its first Illinois location at 781 N. Milwaukee in Wheeling, near Chicago.
Twin Peaks Wheeling features 12,000 square feet of bold hunting lodge décor landscaped with more than 60 high-definition televisions, two indoor fireplaces and an all-season oversized patio. The menu is made-from-scratch with a wide selection of 29-degree draft beers, a full-service bar with 18-tap handles, including local drafts as well as the restaurant’s signature Dirty Blonde and Knotty Brunette brews, poured into oversized frosted man mugs.
“Guys crave a place that offers great food, cold drinks and all their favorite sports,” said Randy DeWitt, CEO of Twin Peaks. “Chicago fans are some of the most dedicated around, and with 60 televisions, Twin Peaks is the perfect hot spot to watch their teams and enjoy an ice cold beer.”
Twin Peaks’ comfort food menu features generous portions of classic American favorites like slow roasted Rib Eye Pot Roast, hand-prepared Chicken Fried Steak and Green Chile Meatloaf, as well as original menu choices like the hardy Hangover Burger and BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos.
Twin Peaks Wheeling is also home to more than 100 new Twin Peaks Girls, the concept’s signature assets.
"We are thrilled to open the first Twin Peaks location in Illinois and introduce new fans to the Twin Peaks Girls and the level of talent they deliver,” added DeWitt. “Entering the Chicago market is a milestone for the concept, and Wheeling is the perfect place to introduce fans to everything that we have to offer.”
