This opening marks the fifth Rock & Brews location for multi-franchise partner Jon Mesko, who also owns California-based Rock & Brews locations in Redondo Beach, Buena Park, Rancho Cucamonga, and Corona. A sixth location in Vacaville, CA is slated to open in November 2017. This will be the restaurant brand’s first Northern California location.

Stanley and Simmons, along with their co-founding partners, restaurateur and hotelier Michael Zislis and concert industry veterans Dave and Dell Furano, are thoughtfully planning for worldwide expansion of the brand. Additional Rock & Brews properties in development include a Rock & Brews Casino Resort in Braman, OK and 10-15 Rock & Brews restaurant locations to open in the Greater Chicago area starting in 2018.
