Further extending the Legend of Big Whiskey’s, the Midwest-based American restaurant and bar franchise is expanding to Tulsa, Oklahoma. The brand recently signed a multi-unit franchise agreement for two locations in the Sooner State.
Local Tulsa businessman, Sean Sylvester, signed the franchise agreement in March with Big Whiskey’s. Restaurants and food service are second nature for Sylvester who has served as the Director of Western Operations for Slim Chicken’s for the past 4 years, in addition to owning Simple Simon’s and Cheezies Pizza franchise locations. Sylvester is also the owner of Shiloh’s Family Restaurant in Tulsa.
Sylvester states, “I’m looking forward to this next venture in my career. The Big Whiskey’s brand really stood out to me, it’s catchy but original, and their product speaks for itself. It will be a welcome addition to our restaurant landscape in Tulsa.”
The Big Whiskey’s Tulsa menu will feature the classic American fare that has made the restaurant a staple throughout the Midwest since its founding in Springfield, MO nearly 13 years ago. Featuring bold, flavorful American bites, a few of the brand’s signature items includes: Buffalo Chicken Wontons, crispy fried wontons filled with Big Whiskey’s Buffalo Chicken Dip and sprinkled with bleu cheese crumbles; the mouthwatering Big Whiskey BBQ Craft Burger, topped with golden onion rings, crispy bacon and homemade Honey Whiskey BBQ sauce; and the signature Chicken Ranch Alfredo Pasta, penne noodles smothered with Big Whiskey’s homemade alfredo sauce and topped with grilled chicken, a recipe that’s been with the restaurant for over 10 years!
And then there’s whiskey! The brand boasts a growing list of over 100 labels of whiskey, bourbon, and scotch and features multiple signature whiskey cocktails, in addition to whiskey on tap.
“Architecture plans are in the works for the first location,” explains Big Whiskey’s president, Austin Herschend. “Tulsa is an ideal area for our expansion, and we are really excited to be working with Sean and his team on getting this location open soon!”
The first Tulsa location is slated to open later this year. It will be one four Big Whiskey’s franchise locations confirmed for a 2019 opening; Big Whiskey’s Las Vegas opened in March, Jefferson City, MO will welcome their first Big Whiskey’s this fall, and a Birmingham, AL location is anticipated to open before December.
