Dallas-based restaurant chain Twin Peaks is seeking entry into the Philadelphia market according to a recent article in Philly Voice. The chain, which offers a sports bar atmosphere and a lodge-themed dining experience was founded in 2009 in Dallas, TX. Since opening, the chain has rapidly grown and currently plans on adding between 22 to 25 locations in the next year and 30-35 locations annually thereafter.
Twin Peaks has announced its intentions to sign 10 leases in the greater Philadelphia area this year with a concentration on Philadelphia, Montgomery, Chester, York, Lancaster, and Bucks Counties. These 10 locations will all be franchises locations. Look for Grand Openings in later 2022 or early 2023.
Twin Peaks is known for 29-degree beer served cold in frosted mugs. The chain also draws controversy over the uniforms their wait staff wears (think Hooters). “We’re beyond excited to partner with two new owners to bring our ‘Lodge Mantality’ to the Philadelphia area,” said Twin Peaks CEO Joe Hummel. “There aren’t many people in the world as passionate for their teams as Philly fans, and we know they’ll appreciate the sports-watching experience Twin Peaks provides. Our wall-to-wall TVs allow sports fans to never miss a snap, shot, or score — no matter where they are sitting. We can’t wait to move forward with this deal and announce where in the area we will be bringing our unmatched food items, drink selection, and scenic views.”
Twin Peaks will offer Philadelphia more than just traditional draft beer and bar food. In addition to the wide selection of national and local draft favorites, the robust beverage menu has something for everyone, whether it’s a rare bourbon or tequila poured over a crystal-clear ice ball or a hand-crafted cocktail. Plus, the made-from-scratch kitchen is bursting with flavors with items such as hand-smashed burgers seared to order, beer-battered chicken tenders, in-house smoked favorites, and gameday shareable for the whole crew.
Our question: Where could such a restaurant go? There are several locations that would be suitable. There is of course King of Prussia (insert eye roll), the Plymouth Meeting Mall also has out parcel pads available. The former Dawson's location (Plymouth Road across from Plaza Acteca) is also available now, that pad was recently cleared. Tornetta has some pad sites available in both their Northwood and Bentwood Executive Campuses (Germantown and Arch).
Twin Peaks is owned by FAT Brands, Inc., the owner of numerous brands including Johnny Rockets and Elevation Burger to name a few. Visit their website here.
