Growler USA Signs 3 New Franchise Deals to Expand
On the heels of successful openings in markets such as Houston, Tucson and St. Louis, national craft beverage franchise, Growler USA, announced three new franchise agreements. The recent developments will bring new pubs to the Albuquerque, New Mexico area as well as Jeffersonville, Kentuck
Growler USA is a microbrew pub dedicated to offering only 100 percent American-made craft beverages and a food menu designed and engineered to celebrate the flavors of each drink. Each location offers a variety of regional and nationally recognized beverages, and remains True to the Brew™ with up to 100 taps of craft beer, hard cider, draught wine, and hand-crafted non-alcoholic beverages such as craft root beer and kombucha tea.
The recent franchise growth brings the following new partners to the Growler USA family:
Sean Jariwala – Coming from the hospitality space, this will be the first restaurant concept owned by Jariwala. He plans to open one pub in Albuquerque, NM near the Albuquerque International Sunport in late 2019.
Greg and Laura Brown – Coming from various roles in the maritime industry, including Ship Captains and hospitality vessels, the Browns are excited to bring their experience and passion for craft beer to land by opening a Growler USA in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The pub is set to open in Bridgeport Commons in early fall 2018.
Acoma Business Enterprises (ABE) – Also developing in the Albuquerque area is Acoma Business Enterprises. ABE has an extensive background in restaurant operations, and plans to open their pub in the fall of 2018 near the intersection of Unser Blvd, NW and La Morada Pl, NW in Albuquerque’s rapidly developing Westside.
“As the craft beer industry continues to flourish and innovate, Growler USA is seeing immense success and demand in new markets,” says John Kutac, President of Growler USA. “We’re excited to bring on these franchise partners to explore new territories, and plan to continue on this path of national expansion.”
Growler USA currently has 22 pubs throughout the country. Leading-edge technology that simplifies operations for franchisees is integrated into the Growler USA business model, with technology-driven programs to streamline beer monitoring operations.

The total investment range to open a Growler USA pub ranges from $556,148-$895,519.
