Cincinnati — Twin Peaks is continuing its commitment to crank up expansion and has signed yet another franchise deal, with plans to open seven additional stores in Ohio.
According to CEO Joe Hummel, the company has executed an Area Development Agreement with JEB Food Group, LLC, to bring seven Twin Peaks locations to Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio. The agreement anticipates that all of the new restaurants will be open within about 4 years.
“Twin Peaks is so much more than the typical sports bar,” says Ed Williams, managing member of JEB Food Group. “It’s a huge hit in all of its current cities and we have no doubt that Ohio will be any different. We are excited to join the Twin Peaks team and we look forward to introducing the one-of-a-kind concept to everyone in these new cities.”
JEB Food Group, LLC, is an entity consisting of three partners: Williams, Brent Irish and John Hong. JEB is led by Williams, who has more than 30 years of quick-service and full-service restaurant development, operations and ownership experience. Irish and Hong are both successful real estate investors and developers in Oklahoma City. The trio has participated in a number of successful ventures over the years, including the recent purchase of the Circle M Crawfish restaurant, an East Texas institution for over 20 years.
“We have been looking forward to expanding through Ohio and the northeastern states ever since we started franchising,” says Hummel. “JEB Food Group has an awesome team with a lot of experience and expertise, so we are excited to have them lead the way into central and southern Ohio.”
Founded in 2005 in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville, Twin Peaks now has 82 locations in 25 states. For more information, visit www.twinpeaksrestaurant.com.
