Garden City, KS (RestaurantNews.com) Sports bars on foot announced today that it has signed a regional development agreement with accomplished franchisor Amro Samy to bring the award-winning restaurant to Sunflower State.
Samy joins the Walk-On family with decades of experience in the hospitality industry. As a multi-concept operator, he currently co-owns five Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom locations in Kansas. Prior to joining the restaurant industry, Samy worked in the private country club industry managing several locations. Through this job, he learned the importance of providing excellent customer service and creating the ultimate customer experience. He acquired a passion for presenting food, mentoring and developing his teams, which ultimately led him to the restaurant industry. Samy plans to open the first Kansas Walk-On restaurant in Garden City.
“We are very pleased to welcome Amro to the winning Walk-On team as a franchisee,” said Brandon Landry, Founder and CEO of Walk-On. “We are eager to enter the new Kansas market and bring a taste of Louisiana to more of the country. We look forward to working alongside Amro and believe his experience will lead Walk-On’s to even more success statewide after Garden City opens.
After learning about Walk-On’s at a restaurant convention, Samy toured the Walk-On area locations and fell in love with the brand’s game day atmosphere and unique Louisiana cuisine.
“We are proud to add Walk-On to our portfolio and present the best-in-class brand in the great state of Kansas,” said Samy. “We know the Garden City area very well and are confident that Walk-On’s family atmosphere, energetic staff, community involvement and home-based Louisiana-inspired dishes will suit perfectly.”
Committed to supporting the communities he serves, the local chef of Walk-On will travel to Garden City High School to give cooking classes to educate future culinary leaders. Additionally, the new restaurant plans to support Garden City Community College through sponsorships with the school’s athletic programs.
At Walk-On’s, every dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to bring their mouthwatering Louisiana cuisine to life.
