Big Whiskey’s Opens Newest Franchise In Kansas City

Company Expands In Largest Market To Date

May 18, 2017 // // Springfield, MO - Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® will unveil its newest restaurant franchise location in Lee’s Summit, MO with a public grand opening during the May 19-21 weekend. H2B Restaurants LLC is the parent company’s second restaurant franchise to open since March and the first in a major metropolitan market.

“We’re eager to introduce Kansas City to the remarkable food, drinks and atmosphere that’s made Big Whiskey’s a legend in southwest Missouri for the past decade,” said Ed House, H2B’s managing partner. The restaurant/bar is in the popular Summit Fair Center on Blue Parkway just off I-470 in Lee’s Summit. “Our location is convenient to everyone in the area for lunch, happy hour, dinner and late night.” The newest Big Whiskey’s is open from 11am to 1:30am with food served until midnight.

House formed H2B with Ryan Bohl and J.D. House to open multiple Big Whiskey’s restaurant franchises in the Kansas City metro area. “Over the last few years, we’ve closely watched the company grow, enhance its systems and never rest on their success. We felt confident that Kansas City is a perfect market for this concept,” House explained. “I’ve always loved the food, people and fun environment at Big Whiskey’s - now we’re going to be part of that growth.” House hinted that his group has begun searching for their next location.

“These are exciting times for us,” beamed Paul Sundy, Big Whiskey’s co-founder & COO. “To open our first restaurant franchise in Bentonville, AR with record numbers and now to launch our first large city location is a dream come true.” He continued, “Ed’s group has made a total commitment to the Lee’s Summit community and we’re delighted to partner with them to serve customers there the best of Big Whiskey’s, any time and every time.”
