Good Times on Tap for Louisiana as Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery Expands

Nationwide Pub & Eatery to Introduce Four New Locations to the
Pelican State

TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Authentic pub fare and craft beer with a side of sexy servers is growing
their presence throughout the state of Louisiana. Tilted
Kilt Pub & Eatery
, a sports pub that pays homage to the old
public houses of America, England, Scotland and Ireland, is pleased to
announce the introduction of four new pubs, over the next five years.
After growing the brand’s presence on the East Coast and in the Midwest,
this is the first development push for Tilted Kilt in Louisiana.

With the first of the four locations already underway with local
operators, the new pub is set to break ground for construction in
Gonzalez. This first pub in the Louisiana market should bust onto the
scene in 2017. The strong community fan bases for local teams such as
the Saints, Pelicans and LSU Tigers makes it an extremely desirable
growth market for Tilted Kilt.

Building on the momentum of these recent developments, Mark Hanby,
senior vice president of franchise development and his team, are now
tasked with introducing the growing entertainment restaurant across the
state. “With an intimate knowledge of both the Tilted Kilt brand and the
Louisiana market, we are primed and poised to grow in the region,” said
Hanby. “With development in its early phases, there are open territories
and franchise opportunities across the state and we are eagerly seeking
local entrepreneurs and business leaders to bring the Tilted Kilt Pub &
Eatery to their communities.”

Targeted development areas in Louisiana include New Orleans, Shreveport,
Alexandria, Ruston, West Monroe and Baton Rouge. Hanby and the team are
actively searching for real estate throughout Louisiana. “With the new
Louisiana Economic Development Secretary
Don Pierson Jr. on board to
strengthen the agency’s commitment to growing small businesses to fuel
the state’s economy, we feel now is the ideal time for Tilted Kilt to
expand in the area,” said Hanby. “It also helps that Louisiana is home
to some of the greatest sports fans in the South. I am confident in our
ability to grow the Tilted Kilt brand, expanding our footprint
throughout key cities across the state.”

With more than 95 locations open across the United States and Canada,
the Tilted Kilt boasts sexy servers, classic Celtic décor, traditional
pub fare and sports all under one roof. The architectural features at
every location remind guests they are in a classy establishment. Dark
mahogany wood fills the bar and the stained glass doors and wainscoting
add to the charm. Combined with pool tables, dart boards and large
plasma TVs, Tilted Kilt is the best place to watch sports and hang out
with friends. Humorous and slightly bawdy limericks are even seen
throughout the pub, creating an atmosphere that is fun and entertaining.
