KWTX is reporting that the restaurant chain, that’s partly owned by Drew Brees, is going to open a store in Waco. It’ll be across from the Legend’s Crossing Development at the Crosslake Parkway and Legend Lake Parkway intersection.
The restaurant is called Walk-On’s and it’s expected to bring about 200 jobs to the area. They’ll serve a Louisiana-style cuisine with a sports bar feel.
Representatives from Walk-On’s and the Texas franchise group will be hosting a ceremonial groundbreaking Thursday morning in Waco. The new 8,500 sq. ft. restaurant will be opening early next summer if everything goes right.
A press release states that “Walk-On’s is becoming one of the fastest growing franchises in the country.” There’s currently 15 in Louisiana and Texas with plans to have more than 100 locations in 15 states. So it’s good to know that Drew Brees will financially set after football.
