TEMPE, Ariz. - February 25, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, a sports pub that pays homage to the old public houses of America, England, Scotland and Ireland, is pleased to announce the addition of 20 new pubs in the Midwest region over the next three years. The new locations will join the 27 existing locations throughout the Midwest.
The new Tilted Kilt pubs will open under the leadership of Tilted Management, LLC led by Paul DiBenedetto, Tilted Kilt Area Developer and multi-unit franchisee. Already working toward the goal of 20 new pubs by the end of 2017, there are currently 11 pubs in different stages of development, including locations in Indianapolis, Grand Rapids, Mich., El Paso, Texas and Overland Park, Kan. The next Midwestern pub is slated to open in Canton, Mich. in March, 2015 and will be situated at 42059 Ford Road.
"With an intimate knowledge of both the Tilted Kilt brand and the landscape of the entertainment restaurant and pub industry in the Midwest, our development team is primed and poised to grow in the region," said DiBenedetto. "With open territories across the Midwest from Minnesota to Oklahoma City, we are chomping at the bit to find local community and business leaders to bring this growing entertainment restaurant to their town."
Targeted development markets in which DiBenedetto and other Area Developers are actively seeking franchise partners, include Minneapolis, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Des Moines, Iowa and Dayton, Ohio. Minneapolis is the strongest untouched market in the United States for Tilted Kilt and can hold up to six pubs, while St. Louis is another strong market that is ready for five pubs. Des Moines and Oklahoma City are both equipped for two new pubs. Tilted Kilt is looking to debut one pub in Dayton, a college town with diverse residents.
"With the combination of the Big 10 Conference and the many professional teams throughout the Midwest, there are a plethora of great sports towns in the region. Tilted Kilt is prepared to become the best place to watch any team play while enjoying an incredible atmosphere and a cold beer," said Mark Hanby, Vice President of Franchise Development. "I am confident in Paul's ability to grow the Tilted Kilt brand, expanding our footprint throughout key markets in the Midwest."
With more than 100 locations open across the United States and Canada, Tilted Kilt boasts sexy servers, classic Celtic décor, traditional pub fare and sports all under one roof. Combined with pool tables, dart boards and large plasma TVs, Tilted Kilt is the best place to watch sports and hang out with friends all in an atmosphere that is fun and entertaining.
