Twin Peaks — competition for Hooters — eyes June opening in Jackson

Twin_Peaks_logoTwin Peaks Restaurant, a sports restaurant with a mountain lodge atmosphere and waitresses in revealing uniforms, is expected to open in June at 6010 I-55 Frontage Road in Jackson in the now-vacant Lone Star Steakhouse building, according the restaurant website fsrmagazine.com. Work has begun on remodeling the structure.

Twin Peeks is a fast-growing eatery, known for its “ultimate man cave atmosphere,” including waitresses in low-cut, midriff tops and short shorts. The Dallas-based chain’s slogan is “Eats. Drinks. Scenic Views.”

According to a legal notice seeking an alcohol permit filed in March in Hinds County, the managing group of Beachside Ski Lodge LLC is headed by managing member is Lee Bradley Smith of Baton Rouge and member Paul Brian Howard of Myrtle Beach.

Last summer, the group announced plans to open Twin Peaks restaurants in Jackson, Hattiesburg and the Gulf Coast. Opening dates for Hattiesburg and the Gulf Coast are not available.

Last year, Twin Peaks signed agreements with new and existing franchisees for 50 commitments, which would give the restaurant more than 100 stores over the next few years. It hopes to have more than 50 restaurants open by the end of 2013.
