Walk-On's Hosts Latest Groundbreaking at Juban CrossingThe “Best Sports Bar in North America” is continuing to expand its Louisiana footprint.

Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar is hosting a special groundbreaking ceremony for its newest restaurant – at Juban Crossing in Denham Springs – this Friday, Aug. 14.

Representatives of Walk-On’s Enterprises will join local officials in turning over earth to mark the momentous occasion at 10 a.m. Friday at 27010 Crossing Circle in Denham Springs. A reception will follow.

The 7,500 square-foot restaurant located in the Juban Crossing Shopping Center is tentatively scheduled to open in the first part of 2016. Key state politicians, Livingston Parish council members and other local dignitaries have been invited to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony.

The newest Walk-On’s will feature more than 70 high-definition flat-screen TVs, over 50 beers on tap, custom pour-your-own table taps, a VIP room and banquet facilities, and a festive beer garden on the 1,800 square-foot outdoor patio.

Walk-On's Hosts Latest Groundbreaking at Juban Crossing“I can’t tell you what an exciting year this has been for everyone associated with Walk-On’s, and this latest groundbreaking is further indication that we’ve only just begun,” said Brandon Landry, co-founder and owner of Baton Rouge-based Walk-On’s Enterprises. “Because Juban Crossing is such an emerging growth area, we think Walk-On’s will be the perfect fit and feel like it will only enhance our brand.”

Walk-On’s currently has four locations – two in Baton Rouge and one each in New Orleans and Lafayette. A new company-owned restaurant is now under construction in Houma, LA, which is expected to open in September. Other locations will follow in Shreveport, Lake Charles, Zachary and Lubbock, Texas. Several additional markets across the Southern United States are likewise on the drawing board.

In May, New Orleans Saints superstar Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany, bought into Walk-On’s Enterprises as co-owners.
