This week we sat down with the walk on himself, Brandon Landry. Founder of Walk On’s Sport’s Bistreaux, quickly closing in on 70+ locations across the US, Brandon has built a household name for his brand through serving good food in a family friendly atmosphere. Starting the concept for the restaurant on a back of a napkin with his co-founder, they still hold true to the founding principals of making sure everyone is a part of the team and are welcome. Persistence is a term used most when people are told no to their face time and time again, for Brandon, it was 6 times before a bank would back their idea. After-all, their idea did get a C at LSU in the business plan course he was taking at the time. Being determined to continuously work and build the brand, he quickly realized they didn’t know what they didn’t know when it came to running a restaurant. After trial and error, they were able to seal the deal by winning best sports bar from ESPN. This was used as a spring board to take them to the next level and begin securing franchisee deals to expand their operations and bring a taste of the south across the country! Not only did we discuss Walk On’s, but for those around the Baton Rouge area, we also touched on Brandon’s new fine dining establishment, Supper Club of BR.
