B&B Franchise Group, parent company of Burger & Beer Joint, announced a joint venture partnership with Jupiter, Florida-based Frank Entertainment. The collaboration will feature the popular restaurant concept in some of the entertainment company’s Frank Theatres, Cinebowl, and Revolutions brands.

The first joint project is scheduled to open in Penn Treaty, Pennsylvania, in September at Revolutions (an edgy, high-end bowling entertainment center with restaurants and bars for adults and families), with subsequent openings scheduled for Delray Beach, Florida (Cinebowl) and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (Cinebowl), and an additional 13 locations in the pipeline throughout the U.S.

“When exceptional proven concepts align, success is destined to happen,” says Bruce Frank, CEO of Frank Theatres. “We are confident this new partnership will deliver an unprecedented entertainment experience for our guests.”

The expansion of both brands jointly offers shopping center developers a solid, multi-faceted anchor designed to attract a highly desirable tenant mix.

Burger & Beer Joint will maintain its current branding, but will expand its menu offerings based on market demands. “We are thrilled to partner with Frank Entertainment on venues that offer so much to the consumer,” says Bill Herman, president of B&B Franchise Group. “In essence, it’s a unique and exciting one-stop shop for restaurants, bars, movie theatres and bowling under one roof; a complete entertainment complex.”
