Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022

Background

Big Whiskey's is a restaurant that celebrates sports, not just a sports bar. We're a restaurant that celebrates our excellent bar products, not just a bar. We're many things to many people‐maybe that's why we're one of the most popular hangouts in the area. Operating 5 locations in a market with just under 300,000 population our AUV is $2.18m with an EBITDAR of 20% so we believe a BW in larger markets will far exceed those numbers. Our first franchise will open early March in Bentonville, AR. Our Kansas City franchise will open in mid-May. We just purchased two shuttered Ruby Tuesday sites, one which will be completely retrofitted to our new design concept for our first free-standing store to open early summer. Our 4-Opportunities Method provides franchisees multiple times to build their bottom line‐daypart mix is 28% lunch, 17.5% happy hour, 39% dinner and 15.5% late night.
