The full service restaurant franchise is based in Minnesota and serves Italian dishes, beer, wine, and a children's menu.

Candidates appreciate that the vibe of the restaurant brand is inspired by the prohibition era. The brand's founder, Dan Sweeney, is in the process of franchising the brand and is looking for candidates who are passionate about following a system and great customer service. The business is closed on Mondays, and Sweeney was inspired to franchise after successfully opening two restaurant locations in Minnesota. This isn't Sweeney's only restaurant either; he also owns the Danno's Ibiza West. Candidates can expect an initial investment that ranges between $136,100 - $350,500, and a franchise fee of  $40,000. Qualified candidates should have at least $40,000 cash. You'll also be provided with an exclusive territory, which decreases your competition as you are the only representative in the area.
