Full-service restaurants will always be one of the most popular segments of the franchising industry. Americans spend hundreds of billions annually at food services and drinking places annually. A trend in this segment is the "upscale dive" - the feeling of a downtown bar with improvements including domestic beers along with cocktails, kitschy decorations, and a spotlessly clean interior with updated fixtures. A bar franchise that fits this description is Barrel House. Customers can't get enough of the brand's specials including Barrel Basket Monday’s, Wine-Down & Whiskey Wednesday and Seltzer Sunday. The bar concept was established in 2011 by Jimmy Holt. He went to community college and decided that he wanted to work instead. He founded his own construction business and enjoyed being entrepreneurial. Since he has always been service oriented, getting into the bar and restaurant business made sense for him. Since Barrel House sells comfort foods, it lives up to its tagline: food that lifts your spirits. Franchisees benefit from a turnkey system that takes the guesswork out of running a restaurant. In addition to an adaptable concept, franchisees benefit from multiple streams of revenue including dine-in, pick-up, delivery, multiple day parts, food and/or drinks.
In addition to buildout and site selection guidance, the franchisor will host a comprehensive training program that covers everything you need to know about running the business properly including the We Care Culture, hiring, marketing and advertising, sales, food preparation, and more. The support and training are ongoing to ensue that your location will be successful.
