Taffer’s Tavern, the innovative, full-service tavern concept founded by industry-leading hospitality expert and star of Paramount Network’s Bar Rescue, Jon Taffer, selected world-class commercial real estate and construction partners to assist in the brand’s rapid unit growth across the nation. Colliers and Northboro Builders will work with the Taffer’s Tavern development team and franchise partners to strengthen the real estate selection, design, build and project management process for all future tavern locations. Taffer’s Tavern is establishing these partnerships to ensure its franchisees have access to preferred vendors to execute restaurant expansions, from data-driven site selection techniques to efficient buildouts to the grand opening of new locations.
“Our newly established partnerships with Colliers and Northboro will be the key to providing our franchisees with the tools they need to amplify the Taffer’s Tavern brand presence nationwide,” says Taffer. “I am confident that Colliers and Northboro’s industry expertise will take our one-of-a-kind concept to the next level by refashioning our growth trajectory and tapping into new real estate possibilities within top media markets.”
Colliers is an established leader for diversified commercial real estate services and investment management in 62 countries. Known for its ability to maximize the potential of property and real estate assets to accelerate success, the company brings nearly three decades of brokerage and franchise real estate experience to Taffer’s full-service franchise. Colliers’ experts will evaluate data and analytics to identify territories best suited for this unique concept, which will enable master franchisees to open new tavern locations empowered by the advantages of insightful logistical support.
“We are thrilled to be launching a dynamic partnership with the Taffer’s Tavern franchise,” says Saira Mohan, senior associate of business development and retail services at Colliers Retail Services. “Our team looks forward to bringing Jon’s revolutionary vision to life by leveraging our arsenal of knowledge in effective real estate expansion. Together, we will build on the tremendous success that the brand has produced during its inaugural year.”
Northboro Builders, the national franchise specialists in design and build, will provide a comprehensive array of services to Taffer’s Tavern from the signing of new franchisees to the build out of restaurant locations. Utilizing its experience executing design and build projects for airport restaurants, franchises, medical facilities and yacht and country clubs, the Northboro team will work hand-in-hand with Colliers to identify real estate properties that match Taffer’s Tavern franchisor and franchisee expectations and budgets.
“I have owned, operated and invested in several highly successful franchises over the course of my career and have never come across a concept quite like what Jon has created,” says Larry Jarnes, president and CEO of Northboro Builders. “It was apparent from the start that our talented, nationwide team matches the expectations of the Taffer’s Tavern franchise as well as Jon’s attention to detail and passion for strategic growth. We can’t wait to get to work.”
Together with Fransmart, the industry-leading franchise development company behind the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys Burgers and Fries and QDOBA Mexican Grill, Taffer’s Tavern is rapidly expanding its footprint across the United States and seeking franchisees to bring the innovative concept to new areas.
