Twin Peaks Restaurant is bringing its one-of-a-kind sports watching paradise and lodge experience to Pittsburgh.

Twin Peaks CEO Joe Hummel announced today that the brand has executed an area development agreement with Franchisee Shamsu Charania of The Falcons Group to open three franchised locations in the Pittsburgh area in Allegheny, Washington and Westmoreland, with one new location scheduled to open each year starting in late 2022 or early 2023. Charania and his group are experienced restaurant operators in the Pittsburgh area, owning multiple brands with more than 90 restaurant locations.

“We’re excited to partner with Shamsu and his team to continue our expansion into the northeast,” Hummel says. “The Falcons Group brings years of experience in the Pittsburgh restaurant scene that will help us rapidly increase our brand in Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh sports fanbase is a proud, passionate group, and Twin Peaks will offer a sports fan paradise to ensure they won’t miss a second of their beloved Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, Panthers and Riverhounds. We can’t wait to bring the lodge experience to the history-filled Steel City!”

Twin Peaks will offer Pittsburgh more than just wall-to-wall TV coverage of every major sporting event, tournament, game and fight. In addition to Twin Peaks’ wide selection of draft favorites, the robust beverage menu has something for everyone, whether it’s a rare bourbon or tequila poured over a crystal-clear ice ball or a hand-crafted cocktail. Plus, the made-from-scratch kitchen is bursting with flavors with items such as hand-smashed burgers seared to order, beer-battered chicken tenders, in-house smoked favorites and game day shareables for the whole crew.
