And at The Brass Tap?
At The Brass Tap, we will be testing our new Aged Handcrafted Bourbon/Spirits program as well as an enhanced entertainment element featuring board games, darts, pinball and old-fashioned electronics games.
We will roll out an updated menu featuring on-trend new products like Korean Bar-B-Q tacos, nachos and sliders as well as our Southern Stack with fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese and pork belly. We’ve also enhanced our Happy Hour offerings with excellent food and drink specials. We will continue to refine the design elements of The Brass Tap to enhance the customer experience, minimize operational complexity and reduce the initial start up cost.
At both Beef ‘O’ Brady’s and The Brass Tap we will continue to reinforce each brand’s positioning. “Where Game Time Meets Family Time” best describes Beef ‘O’ Brady’s. Family, community involvement, sports, great food and value are the foundation of the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s brand.
“Great Times Well Crafted” describes the experience that will make The Brass Tap the country’s best craft beer bar and social gathering place.
Are you adding any new revenue streams in 2018?
New or enhanced revenue streams will come from the expansions of delivery, online ordering, and loyalty programs.
What's your vision for the future of the company?
FSC is a platform for developing and franchising restaurant and bar concepts. Our growth will come from an intense focus on topline sales, brand enhancements that drive new unit growth, the addition of highly accretive corporate store acquisitions as well as the acquisition or development of a third brand for our portfolio.
Today, FSC is comprised of 221 locations generating $250 million in revenues. Within five years we expect to be at 325 locations and $425 million in revenue. We have the brands, the people, the desire, and the supportive ownership needed to make it happen.
Note: CapitalSpring also owns a majority stake in Shari’s Café & Pies and Norms Restaurants and recently raised $725 million in its fifth investment fund.
