Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux Plots Game Plan for Winning Franchise Growth in 2023

Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux Plots Game Plan for Winning Franchise Growth in 2023

Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux (Walk-On’s), the celebrated restaurant brand channeling an unmistakable winning spirit driven by selfless teamwork and camaraderie, has drawn up a 2023 growth game plan that captures current momentum and carries it to the next level.

Formative in several ways, 2022 proved to solidify the prominence of Walk-On’s with guests and franchise investors alike. Last year, Walk-On’s Support Office and its talented franchisees teamed up to open multiple new locations, and set the stage for dozens more to come. There are now more than 75 restaurants operating and 100-plus in various stages of its development pipeline across 14 states, with Missouri (Columbia) to become the newest market joining the franchise system in May.

As the company enters its 20th anniversary year with a remarkable $5 million average unit volume*, Walk-On’s holds a strong position in the restaurant franchising landscape. Last year alone, it signed franchise agreements to break into new territories including Fayetteville, Arkansas; Tampa, Florida; and Baytown, Texas. Plus, the Baton Rouge, Louisiana-born brand opened the doors to new restaurants last year in markets such as Arizona, Las Vegas, and Kansas. This year, Walk-On’s is expecting to open an additional 15 franchise restaurants, already securing inked deals for breakthrough entrances into new areas of Idaho and Georgia.

Furthermore, Walk-On’s has racked up impressive accolades. In January of this year, Entrepreneur magazine named the company the #1 Sports Bar Franchise for the third year in a row. In addition, Walk-On’s was ranked as a Top Franchise for 2023 by Franchise Business Review, a widely respected independent franchise market research firm leveraging franchisee satisfaction surveys to determine rankings.

To uphold Walk-On’s commitment to its unique culinary approach, hometown hospitality, captivating culture, and industry-leading operations, it provides franchisees with best-in-class support to run each restaurant efficiently. As Walk-On’s franchisees do not need to have restaurant experience, the brand’s comprehensive franchisee support covers every aspect of the business, including operations, training, marketing, technology and real estate.

Ideal franchise candidates interested in owning a Walk-On’s should have a passion for the brand, its distinctive southern hospitality and Louisiana-inspired cuisine, as well as the capacity to open one or more restaurants. Prospective owners should also have at least $500,000 in liquid capital per location and $1,500,000 in net worth. Franchise and restaurant industry owner/operators looking to learn more about franchise opportunities with Walk-On’s will have the chance to speak with team members at the Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (booths #2046 and #2048) in Las Vegas from April 25-28, 2023.
