Big Whiskey's Poplar Bluff hosts record-breaking grand opening.

November 2nd, 2023, Poplar Bluff Missouri - Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant and Bar recently opened its 14th location in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, marking its most successful grand opening in a mid-sized community to date.

Poplar Bluff is home to about 16,000 people, which makes it one of the smallest markets that Big Whiskey’s has entered in its history. Within a week of its grand opening, the store generated over $100K in sales.

“We couldn’t be happier with Big Whiskey’s success in Poplar Bluff. People across the community and beyond came out to celebrate our grand opening, and we expect that engagement to continue. Big Whiskey’s is exactly what our city needed.” said David Vernon, a representative from the franchisee group.

Poplar Bluff’s opening marks the ninth Big Whiskey’s location in Missouri, and the first of 8 locations to open in the next 12 months across the nation.

“We’ve always known that we could accomplish big things in smaller communities, and Poplar Bluff’s success is just the beginning,” said Big Whiskey’s co-owner, Austin Herschend. “This demonstrates the power of the Big Whiskey’s brand across markets of all sizes. A grand opening of that size in a smaller community indicates even greater sales success in larger cities.”

Additional Big Whiskey’s locations are expected to open in 2024 in Davie, Florida; Hoover, Alabama; Hunstville, Alabama and across Missouri.
