January 22, 2014 // Franchising.com // The St. Louis inspired Hotshots Sports Bar and Grill brand, which has built a loyal following and fan base throughout its 23-year history in its core Missouri, Mid-West markets, is expanding through Missouri, Illinois, Texas and North Carolina markets throughout 2014.
The strategic course it has charted to expand into high-profile U.S. markets includes awarding development deals to single, multi-unit, multi-brand restaurant ownership groups eager to enhance their portfolios with a concept ripe for growth.
"We differentiate ourselves in the sports bar and grill segment with a unique combination of pool tables, dart boards and video games as well as All The Games – All The Time. Our original menu offers a completely different twist on traditional bar and grill food," said Jason Durnett, director of franchise development for HSF Franchising, LLC. "We create an interactive environment with our customer that is unlike any other in the segment."
Company projections call for one corporate location in Wentzville, MO and franchise locations opening in Webster Groves, MO, St. Peters, MO, Edwardsville, IL in 2014. With the increase in franchise momentum several more are projected to sign franchise agreements in 2014 for 2014/2015 openings.
Attractive on several levels to established restaurant operators, upper level retail management, and area/district managers. The company locations average EBITDA is 16%, well above the national average. One key component that leads to the higher than average profits is the opening cost ranging from $367,000 - $755,000.
"We have built our company on a slow, steady profitable growth. We are taking the same approach to franchising. We want to make sure each franchisee is the right fit for us and we are the right fit for them," said Dan Volmert, Owner and CEO. "Customer service and consistency are the keys to our business and keeps our customers coming back day after day."
After more than 20 years in operation the company decided the best strategy for future growth was to move forward in franchising. The key support personnel are all in place. Several employees have been with the company in operations for more than 15 years. These key people are the support staff to the franchisees. "We find the best support people are not from the outside but rather the key people who have years of experience in day to day operations" said Matt Volmert, director of franchise operations.
