Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, with over 50 locations across the U.S., announced that Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott is now a co-owner of the Baton Rouge-based brand’s Dallas-Fort Worth and Waco restaurants.
“We are thrilled to officially welcome Dak to the Walk-On’s family,” says Brandon Landry, Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux’s CEO, co-founder and owner. “As the face of the Dallas Cowboys, Dak is an icon in the North Texas area, and he fits in perfectly with our brand’s winning culture. This is Walk-On’s second NFL partnership, and we hope to continue to expand this unique co-owner opportunity with additional athletes in other markets across the country.”
As a co-owner, Prescott now has a 20 percent stake in Walk-On’s restaurants in Arlington, Las Colinas, The Colony and Waco. To kick off the partnership, on Tuesday, May 4 from 4-6 p.m., Prescott is teaming up with Walk-On’s to pass out approximately 1,000 meals with OurCalling – a nonprofit that serves and builds long-term relationships with the unsheltered homeless of Dallas County.
“Growing up in Louisiana, my appreciation for Walk-On’s not only stems from my own love of the atmosphere and Louisiana-inspired cuisine, but also its greater connection to the Dallas community,” Prescott says. “Walk-On’s remains a staple in North Texas and I feel tremendous gratitude to be such an integral part of this growing franchise brand.”
Former New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is a co-owner of Walk-On’s Enterprises, the brand’s parent company, with Landry.
“Knowing that the core of this brand includes caring about people and encouraging a team-before-self mentality makes this commitment and partnership an easy decision,” Prescott says.
At Walk-On’s, each dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to bring its mouthwatering, Louisiana-inspired cuisine to life. The diverse menu features unique twists on game-day staples and upscale takes on Louisiana mainstays, such as Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding.
