Big Whiskey’s to Open Republic, MO Location
Popular restaurant/bar adds 6th area hot spot
Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® has purchased the former Ruby Tuesday in Republic, MO and will open its 6th area location this summer. The announcement was made by Paul Sundy, co-founder, as the company is about to open its first franchised stores.
“We’re excited to be part of the Republic community. Finally, our guests who live and work there will have a Big Whiskey’s of their own”, Sundy commented. “We’ve been looking for the right location in Republic for some time and this opportunity is a perfect fit.”
This will be Big Whiskey’s Concepts LLC’s first free-standing location. Sundy explained that “we’ll introduce our new design concept which we think everyone is going to love—it’s still Big Whiskey’s but with some cool updates and enhancements.” The building will undergo a complete facelift inside and outside and “will have no resemblance to the previous restaurant there.”
Renovations are expected to begin soon once the final plans are drawn and permitted. Sundy said he expects a summer opening of the newest Big Whiskey’s. “We can’t wait to be an active member in the Republic community by hiring staff, holding events and supporting charitable causes there.”
The company will open its newest franchises in Bentonville, AR later this month and Lee’s Summit, MO in late May. Additional corporate stores will open “when it’s appropriate” Sundy noted. “We’re still passionate about growing our company locations as we also expand our franchise network.”
