Values & History

Beef's began in 1985 when dreamer and entrepreneur Jim Mellody opened the doors of an affordable neighborhood pub like no other... inviting friends and families to enjoy their favorite foods while catching up on the latest sports. His creation would go on to become a preferred destination among locals, quickly endearing the community with its sense of heart. That same spirit lives on in every Beef 'O' Brady's today.

Why is Beef's so easy to love? It's everything a typical restaurant chain isn't. Guests are encouraged to make themselves comfortable – even if that means pairing tables together for impromptu visits when spotting friends and neighbors across the dining room. It is a true community hub and has been loved by families for over 30 years.

Industry Performance

The franchised restaurant industry in the U.S. is valued at $145 billion in 2019. As the economy strengthens and unemployment declines, per capita spending on eating away from the home is growing at a steady rate. In fact, according to Ibis World this industry has seen 3% growth in the five years leading up to 2019 and is projected to continue growing in the years ahead.

Besides the strong industry forecast, Beef'O'Brady's is a brand that has been continuously in operation for over 30 years and has a very strong customer base. With over 170 locations in 23 states, Beef's is a business you can trust to keep on going, no matter what the financial climate might be.

Training & Support

Over the years we've developed what we believe is the best system-wide approach to success. As such, we place a lot of focus on several key areas, including:

  • Comprehensive Training
  • Assistance with New Store Openings
  • Operations & Growth Consulting
  • Marketing & Support
  • Franchise Advisory Committee
In-depth training is the key to success for any new franchisee, so we combine in-restaurant and classroom training to cover all the bases, making things easy to understand. You'll also be invited to attend a new restaurant opening at another Beef's location prior to opening yours so you can see firsthand everything needed for a successful launch. Then, as you embark on your journey, you'll have easy access to Beef's MVP online training videos for ongoing support, as wealth as a host of other resources to ensure your business receives the guidance needed every step of the way.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

Our franchisees may come from different backgrounds, but they all invest something very important--heart. Some come to us with restaurant experience, others have no restaurant experience at all. If you're not afraid of hard work, everything else can be learned. We'll supply the tools, making this an affordable, low cost investment. But you must bring the desire.

Our owner-operators tend to be individuals who've never been satisfied sitting on the sidelines. They like to be in the center of the action, connecting to everybody and everything around them, creating their own success while making a mark others notice. If you're that kind of person, then you're our kind of franchisee.
