The full-service craft beer pub and restaurant is planning to add five locations in Florida.
Mr Brews Taphouse has signed a five-unit franchise deal to grow its footprint across Florida, with the first location slated to open in Venice in spring of 2022. Mr Brews Taphouse founder and CEO Steve Day has signed a deal with franchisee Brad Potts to open five locations across the sunshine state.
The new location is planned to open at 12168 Mercado Dr. in Venice, next door to the Atlanta Braves’ spring training facility. Venice will be the location of the first new unit, but the brand is targeting areas such as Orlando, St. Augustine and Lakewood Ranch for the next four locations.
“Our first Florida restaurant in Melbourne marked our then-most successful opening,” Day said.
“And it’s consistently performing strongly in the top 10% of all locations in daily sales. With this overwhelmingly positive response, there’s no doubt that Floridians are loving Mr Brews. So, we’re thrilled to team up with Brad to expand our brand’s presence across this great state.”
Potts moved to Florida for his retirement and met Day, the founder of Mr. Brews Taphouse.
“I can’t wait to introduce Mr Brews’ fresh, customizable menu and delicious craft beer line-up to more of Florida,” Potts said.
“When I met Steve, I was immediately impressed by Mr Brews’ notable sales and the franchise structure he and his team have in place. There’s nothing like Mr Brews in Venice, where the market is booming and micro-breweries are lacking.
“We secured the perfect location right by Cool Today Park, so there’s no better spot to open the brand’s second Florida restaurant before we continue growing throughout the state.”
Founded in 2013 by Steve Day, the brand was born in Wisconsin and now currently operates 16 locations across Arizona, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Texas and Wisconsin.
