Smalls Sliders® Officially Sells Out Louisiana Market with Latest Development Deal

Seasoned Development Group Adds Breakout QSR Concept to Portfolio with Five Location Deal Across Louisiana and Texas

September 12, 2023 // // BATON ROUGE, La. - Smalls Sliders, the trending cheeseburger slider concept, announced a significant milestone for the brand as development territories across Louisiana are officially sold out thanks to its latest multi-unit agreement with development group, Jay Tee Holdings LLC. This deal will bring five total Cans across Louisiana and Texas.

This is no small feat for Smalls Sliders, which first gained popularity across Louisiana and now is rapidly expanding across the Southeast, with over 100 Cans in development. This latest agreement will target cities such as Lake Charles and Sulphur, LA, in addition to the Texas Golden Triangle and Beaumont, TX.

Jay Tee Holdings LLC is comprised of longtime friends, Todd Touchet, Rob Carter, and Jonathan “JP” Perry. Touchet, Carter and Perry bring a variety of professional experiences into their operations with Smalls Sliders including dental practice management, public accountancy, legal and elected service.  Drawn to the brand for its proven business model, craveable cheeseburger sliders in addition to industry leaders, the trio is eager to utilize the skills taken from their diverse careers and fuse them into their operations with Smalls Sliders. 

“This signed agreement marks a pivotal milestone for the Smalls Sliders brand as we’ve officially sold out our first state,” said Maria Rivera, CEO of Smalls Sliders. “It’s amazing to see such a significant achievement be reached so early on in our growth journey and it is thanks to such esteemed professionals like this trio that have allowed us to do so. Todd, Rob, and JP all have extensive experience in a variety of fields that will support their operations with Smalls Sliders, and we look forward to supporting them as they begin developing their Cans across Texas and Louisiana.”

The trio aims to have its first location open in late spring of 2024, with the remaining four Cans planned to open through the years that follow. The group is excited to join Smalls Sliders as the concept continues to grow throughout the Southeast and eventually nationwide.

“Rob, JP and I were immediately attracted to the business opportunity that Smalls Sliders presented. We wanted to be a part of something new, exciting, and different. And how can you not be excited to work with leaders like Brandon and Maria and the amazing team they have put together,” said Touchet. “The concept offers a unique experience and a premium product for guests with its limited menu. After meeting the entire Smalls Sliders Squad, we immediately knew this brand was going to be something big. Their team has helped make this process seamless and we are each thrilled to play a part in the brand’s early expansion and bring its cheeseburger sliders to new communities across Louisiana and Texas.”

Smalls Sliders opened its first restaurant in 2019 and has since grown to nine Cans throughout Louisiana, with over 100 locations already in the development pipeline. The restaurant has already garnered industry recognition, with QSR magazine featuring the brand in its “40/40 List for 2022: America's Hottest Startup Fast Casuals” and its 2023 QSR 50 Contenders list. Other accolades include Nation’s Restaurant News naming the brand as one of the publication’s “Breakout Brands of 2023,” in addition to ranking on this year’s Entrepreneur magazine “Top New & Emerging Franchises” list.
