Walk-On’s Expanding with 11 New Locations
For over 10 years, Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar has exceeded guest’s expectations with its quality food and game-day atmosphere, resulting in exponential growth with no plans of slowing down.
Walk-On’s Enterprises co-founder and owner Brandon Landry announced that the company has executed a Franchise Agreement with Jason Sadowski and his wife Amy to bring 11 Walk-On’s locations to Georgia (Savannah and Augusta), South Carolina (Columbia, Charleston, Greenville, Spartanburg and Myrtle Beach) and North Carolina (Fayetteville and Wilmington) starting in fall 2018.
Restaurant operation is in Sadowski’s blood—his parents, Tom and Nancy, were multi-unit restaurant owners as well. Sadowski grew up in the business and in 2010, formally took the reins. Altogether, Sadowski has over 15 years of multi-unit experience under his belt.
“When exploring new franchise opportunities, a friend asked if we were familiar with the Walk-On’s brand,” says Sadowski. “After one visit, Amy and I were blown away by our experience and knew this was where we were meant to be. With hundreds of restaurant brands across the country, it’s hard to find one that has a unique offering as well as a mass appeal, but Walk-On’s definitely fits the bill. We are excited to join the Walk-On’s team and we look forward to introducing the one-of-a-kind concept to everyone in these three new states.”
Walk-On’s is renowned for its signature Louisiana-style menu served up in a game-day atmosphere by an All-American Team.
Walk-On’s now has 15 locations: four in Baton Rouge, two in New Orleans and one each in Lafayette, Houma, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Covington and Bossier City, La., and Lubbock, San Antonio and Tyler, Texas. With more than 100 locations across 15 states in the pipeline, Walk-On’s has become one of the fastest growing franchises in the country.
New Orleans Saints superstar Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, bought in as co-owners in May 2015. Drew pointed out that Walk-On’s is “a great place to bring my family, teammates and business colleagues” and that they were excited to help “expand the brand across the nation.”
