ADDISON, Texas (June 21, 2011) – Twin Peaks Restaurants is expanding into Louisiana with plans to open its first location in Baton Rouge later this year thanks to a new franchise agreement with local real estate developers Jim Clark Cotton Lloyd.
“I’m very excited to introduce Twin Peaks to the Baton Rouge community,” said Clark, who expects to open the restaurant in November and has plans for another in New Orleans in 2012. “People love great food, cold beer, sports and the Twin Peaks Girls. There is no doubt in my mind that this restaurant will be wildly popular here.”
Named a 2010 “Hot Concept!” by Nation’s Restaurant News, Twin Peaks has 15 locations throughout Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, and is scheduled to add at least five more by the end of 2011.
“Ever since we began franchising Twin Peaks we have had our eyes on Louisiana, because it’s a state that appreciates quality food, a great bar and attractive women,” said Twin Peaks CEO Randy DeWitt, who co-founded the concept in 2005 with Scott Gordon to meet the needs of an untapped market. “It was just a matter of finding the right franchisee, and we have found that person in Jim.”
Twin Peaks features made-from-scratch food and ice-cold draft beer served by friendly and attractive Twin Peaks Girls in a mountain sports lodge setting. The menu, which is continually under development, features home-style dishes such as slow-roasted Rib Eye Pot Roast, Grilled Meatloaf, and butter-brushed Flat Iron Steak as well as classics like hand-prepared Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, never-frozen Buffalo Wings in four flavors, made-to-order Chicken Fried Steak, and the signature Twin Cheeseburger with caramelized onions and a choice of five cheeses.
