WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Restaurant and sports bar chain Twin Peaks plans to open a new location in West Chester later this year.
Construction is set to start next month at 9424 Civic Centre Blvd., the former site of Champps restaurant, WCPO news partner the Journal-News reported. They plan to hire 140 full- and part-time employees starting in mid-August to open in October.
Ed Williams, managing member of franchisee JEB Food Group, told the Journal-News they also plan to open six other Twin Peaks locations in southwest and central Ohio.
"We're already negotiating locations for those areas already," he said.
According to Twin Peaks' website, its restaurants offer patrons "a lodge full of friendly and attentive Twin Peaks Girls serving up scratch food and our signature 29° beers." The West Chester location will have about 70 TVs to show "every major sports event," the Journal-News reported.
"It’s that perfect storm …. that people want when they go out, especially men going to a sports bar," Williams told the newspaper. "You want to be greeted by good-looking, professional servers, you want to be able to see every major sports (event) you can at any given time and you want to have great food while you’re doing it, and ice cold beer. You can’t ask for more and we don’t have really have anything like that in that Columbus-Cincinnati-Dayton market."
