Hurricane Grill & Wings franchising fast casual concept
Hurricane BTW, a fast casual restaurant concept created by the full-service dining concept, Hurricane Grill & Wings, is opening its first franchise location next month in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The West Palm Beach location, which is an evolution of BTW's lab location that opened in Ft Lauderdale last year, will be a model for more than 50 Hurricane BTW franchise locations already sold and scheduled to open throughout the U.S. in the next 48 months, according to a company press release. Immediately following the WPB Hurricane BTW opening, locations will open in Gainesville, Florida, and Chicago.
Hurricane BTW menu offerings include burgers, tacos, chicken wings, chicken tenders, salads, ice cream shakes and beer. The 2,700-square-foot West Palm Beach unit will also feature the Crowler, a 32-ounce sealable can for draft beer, in addition to happy hour, daily specials and kids' meals.
Jack Gandolfo, the franchise owner, is also opening a BTW location in Gainesville later this year.
"It's a great brand with great food," Gandolfo said. "I'm a big fan of the Hurricane Grill brand and BTW is a great transition into the fast-casual environment featuring Hurricane Grill & Wings' best products. I'm excited to showcase the restaurant to our customers."
Hurricane BTW is in the process of seeking out experienced franchise owners. The estimated expenditures to build a Hurricane BTW are $225,000 – $464,000, according to the release.
