Mad Dogs British Pub is opening a Tucson location. From the press release:
(Tucson, AZ)—- Mad Dogs British Pub, a full tilt experience of British-influenced food, beers and colorful décor is expanding its unique brand of pub entertainment across the U.S. Targeting development in Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Peoria, Tucson and Scottsdale, Mad Dogs British Pub aims to open 20 locations by mid-2015, six of which are expected to open in Arizona.
“It’s such a natural expansion for us,” says Terry Corless, a native of Cambridge, England and currently the company’s CEO. “Many of our customers in San Antonio are either transplants or visitors from around the country. We’re constantly asked when we’re going to open other locations.”
Mad Dogs British Pub opened on San Antonio’s Riverwalk in 1995 putting a playful twist on English pub culture, with its staff donning kilts and Union Jack dresses while serving beer to patrons in yard glasses. A franchise program was launched in 2010. In addition to expansion in Arizona, the brand is also eyeing expansion in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Tennessee.
