SAM’s Path to Twin Peaks
Initially, the fun atmosphere and hunting lodge drew my interest to Twin Peaks. When I learned about the scratch kitchen and -2° draft beer, I knew it was a brand I had to be a part of. My final decision to franchise with Twin Peaks was mostly due to the economics and broad reach of the brand. I’ve been in different economic positions throughout my life, but I always had money for a cold beer and a great burger. With that in mind, I felt that Twin Peaks was recession resistant.
I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of support received from the corporate side of Twin Peaks. It truly feels like a partnership with both sides working towards the same goals. The openness of Twin Peaks with their franchisees makes life much easier and their goal of growing the brand while also protecting it are keys to both of our success. Because of this support, our group has met our investment expectations and look forward to continued growth in new markets.
