Where Traditions are as Important as Trends

Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar is quickly becoming one of the most sought after restaurant franchises in America. And for good reason!

In the 10 years since we opened our first casual dining restaurant in downtown Springfield MO, we’ve built a loyal following by offering excellent food & drinks that are moderately priced and served by well-trained, friendly people in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.

How is that different than other franchise restaurants? By working for other national chains, our founders realized they could offer better food, bigger portions and lower prices all in an atmosphere that truly makes a guest feel welcome.  

We celebrate sports but we’re not a sports bar.  We celebrate our excellent bar products, but we’re not a bar. We’re a restaurant that does all that with a strong net revenue percentage proven year after year.

We now have 5 restaurants operating successfully in the relatively small market of Springfield MO. We’ll open our 6th unit in Kansas City and franchises in Bentonville AR and Kansas City by late 2016/early 2017.

“After researching a number of franchise opportunities we decided to go with Big Whiskey’s rather than a more established chain. Why? We believe in the concept, their numbers are solid and the company has the right attitude when it comes to supporting its franchisees. They have proven, professional systems in place and they treat us as part of their family, not just another business deal.”
—Ed House, Kansas City Franchisee

Why Big Whiskey’s Should Be Your Partner

Restaurant franchises are not all created equal. At Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar, you’ll find that we’re quite different than most casual dining franchises.

First, there’s our unique and memorable name. The legend of Big Whiskey’s is well known in Southwest Missouri and attracts families, singles, couples and groups of all ages. We pride ourselves on offering a unique gathering place – focusing on good food, good times, and great entertainment for all. We do this while staying true to the age-old traditions of maintaining the highest standards of quality and providing superior customer service; things that truly set us apart from other franchise restaurants.

A Formula That Delights Every Guest

Our premium quality menu items range from hand-cut steaks, appetizers, salads, soups and sandwiches to pastas, craft burgers and kid’s meals – plus a full bar featuring over 85 whiskeys (3 on tap), 20 beers on tap and lots of HD TV’s! We’ve channeled our years of experience in the restaurant industry into building a concept that stands out in the crowd, while never forgetting that it’s the support of new and loyal customers that truly make us who we are.

Now you have the chance to pursue an incredible opportunity in the casual dining industry – putting your skills and drive to work in a concept that has been refined, market-tested, and recognized time and time again for excellence. With our 4 Opportunities Method, we offer guests excellent food & drinks in a friendly, fun environment for lunch, happy hour, dinner & late night.
•    Lunch  28%
•    Happy Hour  17.5%
•    Dinner  38%
•    Late Night  15.5%

What this means for Big Whiskey’s franchise partners is that you can proudly own a dining destination that features multiple ways to please your guests – and multiple ways to build your bottom line.

Best of all, you can do it with confidence, backed by a founding team that is committed to the support of its franchisees.  We’ve lived it for 10 years--bank on our experience & support and you can live the Big Whiskey’s dream!
