Walk-On's Buys Land in Conway for First Arkansas Restaurant
Walk-On's Bixtreaux & Bar, a Cajun-themed restaurant/sports bar co-owned by NFL All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees, closed Thursday on its $1.37 million purchase of approximately two acres of land at Lewis Ranch in Conway.
Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Walk-Ons has a presence throughout the South. The Conway restaurant will be approximately 8,400 SF and is scheduled to break ground within 30 days, with a projected opening of February 2020.
“We are super excited to break ground on our first location in Arkansas,” Chris McJunkins, Walk-On’s Arkansas franchisee, said in a news release. “My family has deep roots in the state, and we look forward to providing the residents of Conway a first-class food and beverage offering.”
Lee Strother and Cole Herget of Colliers International Arkansas represented the seller, and Chris Moses and Greyson Skokos of Newmark Moses Tucker Partners represented the buyer.
Strother said in the release, “This purchase is a launching pad for the Lewis Ranch development, and we will have several new announcements to make in the near future.”
“Newmark Moses Tucker Partners is very excited to be a part of the Walk-On’s team here in Arkansas, and we look forward to announcing four more new locations in the coming months,” President Chris Moses said in the release.
