Big Whiskey's Signs Franchisee For Kansas City

Springfield MO-- Big Whiskey's Franchising LLC has announced the signing of its newest franchisee in Kansas City. H2B Restaurants, LLC recently secured the rights to open the first Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar franchise in the Kansas City metro area.

H2B, a Missouri-based restaurant group owned by Ed House, Ryan Bohl and JD House, had been considering the venture for some time. "We've followed the growth of Big Whiskey's for years and we're excited to now be part of that expansion," said Ed House, H2B's managing partner. "When we learned the Kansas City franchise was available we knew it would be the perfect market for our first Big Whiskey's."

"We're pleased to have Ed, Ryan & JD as the newest members of the Big Whiskey's family," commented Austin Herschend, the company's franchising CEO. "We've been impressed with H2B's multi-unit business experience; they will be a superb addition to the Big Whiskey's brand." He added that the parent company will also open its first corporate-owned restaurant in Kansas City "around the same time H2B will open their store so we can maximize our impact in the market". Herschend predicated both units will open in early 2017 and intends to open up to 8 restaurants in the market. "We're aggressively looking for more opportunities in Kansas City."

Both H2B and Big Whiskey's are working closely together to find two ideal sites "that compliment each other but don't compete" House explained. "Opening two Big Whiskey's almost simultaneously will give us a tremendous advantage in Kansas City."

Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar currently operates 3 restaurants in Springfield MO, one each in Ozark & Branson MO and will open its first franchise location in Bentonville AR later this year. The first Big Whiskey's was started in downtown Springfield in 2006 and began franchising in late 2015. More information can be found at
