July 19, 2018 // Franchising.com // MOBILE, AL - Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar is making its highly anticipated Alabama debut and is bringing its fresh Louisiana cuisine served in a family-friendly atmosphere to Mobile on Monday, July 23.
The new restaurant, located at 3673 Airport Blvd., will kick off its grand opening festivities at 10:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Mobile Chamber of Commerce. During the event, Walk-On’s will make a $5,000 donation, in the form of a large check, to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Mobile’s new Walk-On’s restaurant will open its doors at 11 a.m. on Monday. But consider arriving early because the first 25 customers will receive a mini football autographed by New Orleans Saints superstar and Walk-On’s Co-Owner Drew Brees! The new restaurant will also be giving one lucky winner Free Walk-On’s for a Year!
“I’ve lived in the Mobile area for 27 years and I can’t tell you how excited we all are to welcome Walk-On’s to the community and to the great state of Alabama,” said General Manager Chuck Rehm. “The game day atmosphere and Louisiana-inspired menu is unlike anything else in Alabama; the food is seriously delicious.”
Walk-On’s is renowned for its signature Louisiana-inspired menu served up in a game-day atmosphere by an All-American Team. When the new restaurant opens, it will be the 21th Walk-On’s system-wide.
“We are extremely excited and honored to introduce everyone in Mobile – and Alabama – to the incredible Walk-On’s brand,” said Jason Gisclair, President of DBMC Restaurant Group, a Walk-On’s franchisee. “We have found the perfect location near I-65 and we’ve hired an All-American team of 125 to join us in serving the Mobile community. Walk-On’s is perfect for Mobile and we know it’s going to be a very welcome addition to the dining and entertainment landscape in the area.”
The new restaurant will be open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Walk-On’s now has 20 locations: four in Baton Rouge, two in New Orleans and San Antonio, and one each in Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Covington, Broussard, Alexandria, Gonzales, and Bossier City, La., and Waco, Lubbock and Tyler, Texas. Other locations are coming soon in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas, with several additional markets across the Southern U.S. likewise on the drawing board.
