Started in 2005, four longtime college friends saw a restaurant opportunity in Buckhead, Georgia, and within a year acquired a restaurant to test their Tin Lizzy’s Cantina concept. Tin Lizzy’s is a highly differentiated, full-service restaurant and bar that offers award-winning cuisine and signature drinks in a high-energy cantina environment. At Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, we’re known for our refreshing margaritas, friendly service, lively music and of course, our FlexMex cuisine.
Our philosophy is based on superior execution of food and drinks at a great price, with genuine service. We focus on treating guests as “friends serving friends” at their “home away from home”. Our unique menu and atmosphere is described as “FlexMex” - A cuisine that resembles Tex-Mex but is comprised of and influenced by many cultures. It is an attitude or experience that evokes a feeling of belonging and pure awesomeness.
Each Tin Lizzy’s location is built with a patio being the main focus, with newer construction combining the bar with the patio. Tin Lizzy’s features live local music four nights a week. Background music is strategically planned to consider the time of day and crowd within the restaurant to create upbeat energy with guests and staff. Each location has local artifacts used as decor to create a community feel.
Our typical development agreements require franchisees to build multiple restaurants in a defined geography within a defined period. Usually we require a minimum of five restaurants.
Our preferred partner is an experienced and well-capitalized multi-unit operator who is operating restaurants already with another brand. We typically require a minimum of $2.5 million in net worth, along with substantial cash assets, totalling a minimum of $500k for each restaurant. It is also important our franchisees have sufficient funds to cover working capital costs and startup costs, which are substantial.
Territorial exclusivity is occasionally given, but our willingness to consider exclusivity is dependent on the initial development commitment.
All new Tin Lizzy's Cantina franchisees receive the support and training required to open their restaurants quickly and efficiently, including:
