Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar on Track to Double Its Size in 2019

Popular Baton Rouge Brand Grows Franchise Footprint, Brings Its Signature Louisiana-Inspired Concept to New Markets Nationwide

BATON ROUGE, La. - Feb. 5, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar, a leading full-service family sports bar that provides gourmet takes on game day favorites, is on track to double its size in 2019. The brand projects to open 17 franchise locations by year-end while awarding 25 more as it strategically expands its nationwide footprint.

Walk-On's kicked off 2019 with the opening of its milestone 25th location and continues to debut new restaurants beyond its home in the heart of the Gulf Coast. Today, with over 100 locations in development across 15 states, the brand will continue focused development in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. The smart and steady growth strategy has proved successful for the brand as it was recently ranked in Franchise Times' Fast & Serious list.

"Our pipeline is fuller than it's ever been, but staying in the sweet spot of opening 20-25 new locations a year will remain a key part of our development strategy," said President & COO, Scott Taylor. "We're not trying to sell, sell, sell, open, open, open, and then exit. We're in this for the long-run and want to make sure we do it right. We've worked to build an infrastructure that is equipped for the next stage of serious growth and we're strategically selective in our franchisee recruitment efforts. Our franchisees have been instrumental in the success of our brand and we look forward to welcoming new, passionate owners to the system."

Walk-On's continues to create excitement and drive business with its proven system that leads to year-over-year sales growth. In 2018, sales grew by 82 percent while average unit volume was $5.4 million. The brand has truly gained a loyal following for employing the go-getter spirit of a walk-on athlete while providing superior service and mouthwatering All-American menu items with a taste of Louisiana.

Whether it be for date night, a drink, girl's night out or a family dinner, Walk-On's is the place for everyone - because everyone needs a little playing time. Every dish is made from scratch using fresh ingredients to bring its savory cuisine to life. Walk-On's diverse menu has offerings ranging from unique twists on game day staples to upscale takes on Louisiana mainstays pleasing all palates. Its game day atmosphere paired with a true southern hospitality makes it a perfect dining destination for everyone. As stated by co-owner and NFL superstar Drew Brees, Walk-On's is "a great place to bring my family, teammates and business colleagues," and we're excited to help "expand the brand across the nation."

Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar is seeking qualified, active and engaged individuals who are familiar with restaurant business operations, are involved with their community, and are hungry to dive into the world of franchising. Additionally, they must be true team players who have a passion for delivering great food and a game day experience.
