Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar Offers Franchisees A Shot At Quick Profitability
Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar has been making a big name for itself. The brand has been gaining recognition among consumers as well as savvy franchise operators across the country. It’s the brand’s profitability and how quickly franchisees can ring that bell that has been really turning heads.
“The profitability is a function of our low labor cost – courtesy of the brand’s real time labor tracking and management software, higher ticket averages generated by bar sales, and our new loyalty program,” said Joy White, Big Whiskey’s director of marketing. Even getting started with the brand provides franchisees with an edge courtesy of its lower-than-average investment cost for its type of concept.
Big Whiskey’s EBITDAR (earnings before amortization, taxes, depreciation, and restructuring or rent costs), rises above the competition. In an industry that sees an EBITDAR percentage around 17%, Big Whiskey’s tops the scale at 21.8 %.
Labor costs are controlled by real time labor tracking using an industry leading operations system which makes managing labor simple and profitable for franchisees. The brand maximizes revenue per square foot through its efficient footprint in both the front and back of house areas.
The best in class average ticket per visit at Big Whiskey’s is $22.47. That’s because liquor, beer, and wine sales are significantly higher than competitors and combined with a strong, well balanced menu mix, engineered for maximum sales to encourage guests to order more. As a result, Big Whiskey’s tops all competitors including brands like Buffalo Wild Wings and TGI Friday’s.
Beyond the indisputable proof found in the raw numbers, Big Whiskey’s makes a great investment opportunity for many other reasons. Everything from superior food quality and great pricing and service from vendors to experienced corporate leadership and unequalled operational support makes Big Whiskey’s a solid investment.
If you need any more proof, just ask a Big Whiskey’s franchisee, who will gladly validate the brand. “The key to our success has been implementing all of the tools that corporate makes available to us,” said Amaan Porbandarwala, a successful Big Whiskey’s franchisee. “Big Whiskey’s has a great training program which enabled us to hit the ground running and keep everyone engaged. Training can be done on paper or digitally which provides a lot of flexibility.”
Big Whiskey’s is, of course, known for its wide-ranging whiskey selection and its Celebrated Bar menu, but its food is top shelf too. The extensive menu features bold, flavorful plates and a rotating seasonal menu that compliments the brand’s staple items such as Buffalo Chicken Wontons, crispy wontons filled with Big Whiskey’s famous Buffalo Chicken Dip, a selection of hand-cut steaks, homemade pasta dishes, and award-winning wings round out the robust menu.
Founded in Springfield, Missouri in 2006, Big Whiskey’s has expanded into other states and now has open locations in Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
Big Whiskey’s is looking for qualified franchise investors who want to be a part of a segment-leading brand and taking the fast-track to profitability. If this sounds like the kind of opportunity you are looking for visit bigwhiskeysfranchise.com, or call 417-857-5004 for more information.
