Beef O’Brady’s seeking to add up to 5 more Dayton-area locations

Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, which operates a sports pub on Seajay Drive in Beavercreek, is looking to expand its Dayton-area footprint by adding as many as five new locations in the next three to five years, a spokeswoman for the chain said.

Beef ‘O’Brady’s describes itself as a “family friendly sports pub” that offers a wide range of menu items including pizza, burgers and wings, accompanied by a variety of craft beers and cocktails. The chain is working on launching a number of new menu items this year, the spokeswoman said.

The qualifications that the chain is looking for in a prospective franchisee, according to its franchising web site, to open each franchise restaurant are:

• $ 250,000 in liquid assets

• A minimum net worth of $ 450,000

There is a franchise fee of $35,000 per location, and franchise owners pay 4 percent of adjusted gross sales in royalty and are assessed 2.3 percent of adjusted gross sales as a marketing fund contribution, the web site says.

A second Dayton-area Beef O’Brady’s operated for 10 years at 953 S. Main St. in Centerville until its franchise agreement expired in 2014, and its then-owner transitioned into an independent sports bar.

The Beavercreek location is owned and operated by franchisee Bill DeFries.

The Tampa-based Beef ‘O’ Brady’s chain operates more than 220 pubs in the U.S.
