A combination of competitive advantages – a sports emphasis, being family-friendly, serving high quality food and being a great value – are the legs of the table on which Beef ‘O’Brady’s is building its franchised chain of restaurants. “It’s those things coming together that make us very unique,” Chief Development Officer James Walker declares. “We appeal to a wide audience – we appeal to sports fans and families alike.”

At each of Francesca’s Restaurants Inc.’s locations, employees strive to remember customers’ names and preferences. That way, the restaurant has the feel of a private club, President Jeffery  I. Cohen says.

First-time visitors to Razzoo’s Cajun Café may not know what to make of certain items on the casual-dining restaurant’s menu.
