The newest franchise addition to the Big Whiskey’s brand opened on Friday, October 18th to incredible enthusiasm in the community. The three-day opening weekend topped the previous sales record for the company by twetty-two percent. The brand, which started franchising its “American Restaurant & Bar” concept in 2015, has seen great success in previous franchise grand openings but none to this scale. A representative for JC Whiskey's LLC, the ownership group operating the Jefferson City franchise, says "we are thrilled with the opening and see no signs of slowing down. We're ecstatic to be a part of this community."
