Site   Selection


We are developing a site acquisition and qualification process incorporating management’s experience as well as extensive data collection, analysis and interpretation. We are actively developing restaurants in both new and existing markets, and we will continue to expand in selected regions throughout the U.S. Please send all potential sites to our Director of Real Estate and Development:

DJ Falcoski . He will work with Brokers, Property Managers, Municipalities, etc. who are interested in having us.  


  • The key criteria we have for a site is that the population within a three mile radius of the restaurant has a high concentration of our target demographic, which is persons ages 21 to 44 and persons with median income ranges in excess of $60,000 per year that dine out frequently.


  • We also prefer locations with high visibility, especially in a new market, and ample surface parking spaces.


  • We seek to identify sites that contribute to our “If you’ve seen one A&R you’ve seen one A&R” vision, meaning no two restaurants are alike. As we do not have standardized restaurant requirements with respect to size, location or layout, we are able to be flexible in our real estate selection process.

  • On average, from site identification to opening is about 7 months.



   & Construction

We retain our own design and construction team that will take the project from the landlord’s deliverable through opening.


New   Restaurant


(so far)

We have opened multiple locations since 2016 and our management believes we are well positioned to continue to grow at a rate of five new openings per year. We currently have three (3) sites under lease/development that will all be opened by third quarter 2020. 


Actively looking for sites in the following markets: Indianapolis, Nashville, Asheville, Cincinnati, Memphis, Bowling Green, Chattanooga, whew … Paducah, Morgantown, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Lake Cumberland, Columbia, Huntington, Frankfort. You get the idea. Priority will be given to Lake Cumberland and Nashville areas.
