Tampa-Based Chain Restaurant Eyeing Columbia Location

Beef O'Brady wrote that company officials "have specifically identified Columbia for expansion of the brand."


Beef 'O' Brady's, a Tampa-based chain of family restaurants, is looking to expand into Columbia, according to a news release sent this week by company officials.

The restaurant chain currently operates 210 restaurants in 22 states and characterizes itself as a sports bar geared toward families. Each restaurant has a considerable amount of televisions as well as an arcade for kids, according to its website.

"Demographic research, brand recognition within the state and other factors make Columbia an ideal market for further expansion of the franchised restaurant concept," wrote the company in a press release.

Although named Beef 'O' Brady's, the company is known for its buffalo chicken wings, despite being founded with a number of beef sandwich menu options, according to the release.

Currently the company is searching for a franchise partner in the area "with business savvy, tenacity and a readiness to reinvest in the communities they serve," according to the release.

The company sponsors the annual Beef 'O' Brady's NCAA foootball bowl, which will take place in St. Petersburg, FL on Dec. 21. 

Currently Beef 'O' Brady's has one location in the state, in Frederick.
