Bar Louie signed a multi-unit area development agreement with new franchise partner, SHREE Enterprise.

The company is planning to expand the Bar Louie brand in Kentucky and Tennessee with a total of five restaurants.

Locations include two new restaurants in Louisville, Ky.; one in Lexington, Ky.; one in Clarksville, Tenn.; and one in Knoxville, Tenn. Bar Louie expects the first location to open in the summer of 2015.

The company is currently experiencing solid growth with four projected new openings before the end of this year. In addition, Bar Louie has plans for nearly 100 new corporate and 100 franchise locations across the U.S. within the next five years.

To further fuel expansion, Bar Louie is looking to develop on the West Coast with new restaurants in Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and California.

Bar Louie also invites veterans and active military personnel to enjoy a free meal on Veteran’s Day.

From open to close every Bar Louie location across the country will offer veterans and military personnel a free meal up to a $12 value when they show valid military I.D. or other proof of service.
