Just in time for holiday celebrations, Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar will open their eighth company-owned location in Nixa, Missouri, on Saturday, December 1! This location will mark the second company-owned store Big Whiskey’s has opened in 2018.
“I am constantly amazed at the energy and effort our entire team puts in when we go after a new location. As a Nixa resident, I’m especially proud of this store and I can’t wait to share it with the community,” states Co-Founder and Senior VP of Operations, Paul Sundy.
Soft opening dates are planned from November 19 through November 30, however the restaurant will close on Thanksgiving Day. Big Whiskey’s will officially welcome the Nixa community with a ribbon cutting in collaboration with the Nixa Chamber of Commerce at 10:30am on Saturday, December 1. Following the ceremony, doors will open for business.
The first week of full operating hours will begin Monday, December 3. The restaurant will host community giveback nights each evening that week benefiting local organizations.
Greg Veach, a Nixa graduate, will be the restaurant’s acting general manager. “To say I’m excited is an understatement! I’m incredibly thankful for this opportunity to grow with Big Whiskey’s and to return to my hometown makes it that much sweeter,” exclaims Veach.
The Nixa property at 715 McCroskey Street, was purchased as a package deal in November 2016. With the purchase, Big Whiskey’s acquired two shuttered Ruby Tuesday’s locations; Nixa and Republic, MO. The Republic location opened its doors in August 2017. A noticeable upgrade to the properties, new patios were also added at both locations. They’ve become a staple for the BW brand and was a feature that was lacking as previous Ruby Tuesday’s restaurants.
Employment opportunities are still available including key positions for additional cooking staff in Nixa. Interested applicants can apply online at bigwhiskeys.com/apply-online.
