Springfield, MO. February 2nd, 2016 – Big Whiskey’s Franchising is excited to add Bentonville, AR, businessman Shane Miller to the Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar family. Along with his wife, Candice, and 8 month old daughter, Olson, Mr. Miller has lived and worked in Bentonville since 2008. With a strong background in real estate and franchise restaurant development, he is the perfect person to open the company’s first Arkansas location.

“I’ve been a fan of Big Whiskey’s ever since the first location opened and have known for a long time that we needed one in Bentonville. I’m excited that I’ll be able to make Big Whiskey’s a part of this community.” Miller said.

Austin Herschend, Big Whiskey’s Franchising CEO, said, “Shane and his wife will be a great addition to the Big Whiskey’s family. His enthusiasm and passion for his community coupled with his background in business are exactly what we have been looking for.”

Big Whiskey’s Franchising has been interested in Northwest Arkansas for several years because of the strong economic base and potential for multiple locations. The company is confident Bentonville is the right town to enter the Arkansas market. Miller is working to finalize the location for his first restaurant now and hopes to have it open by the fall of 2016.
