Growler USA Taps Booming Craft Beverage Industry with New Franchise

America’s Microbrew Pub™ in High Demand with 20 Locations under
Development

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–America’s obsession with craft beer is undisputed and a new franchise, Growler
USA, America’s Microbrew Pub™,
is aiming to become the
most comfortable spot in local neighborhoods for an elevated craft
beverage experience. The brewpub, which already has 20 locations in
development, offers up to 100 taps of craft beverages, alongside high
quality cuisine that complements exactly what you’re drinking.

Through its pledge to pour 100 percent American-made, premium beverages
– no macro brews or imports – Growler USA is poised to champion the
craft beverage industry. Craft beer comprises about 10 percent of the
$400 billion U.S. beer industry and saw double-digit growth throughout
the recent recession, according to the Brewers Association. Growler USA
brewpubs serve American craft beverages, including microbrews, hard
cider, draught wine, handmade root beer, cold-pressed coffee and
kombucha tea.

“Craft beer is a business that’s evolved into an industry and one I
expect will continue to grow with great momentum,” said Dan White, CEO
and founder of Growler USA. “Growler USA is an advocate for local and
regional brewers across the nation, standing True to the Brew™ so
guests can enjoy the beverage exactly as the brewers intend.”

White is an experienced business leader and serial entrepreneur, with
more than a decade of extensive franchise experience. Prior to launching
Growler USA, White launched several successful startup companies,
including Rapid Refill Ink, which sold 100 franchises in its first 10
months.

Growler USA currently has a location in Eugene, Oregon, with several
slated to open this fall in Charlotte, N.C.; Austin, Texas; and Denver,
Colo. The brand expects to debut in Hawaii, Washington, Massachusetts,
California, Florida, Arizona and Virginia in 2016.

“Growler USA is a franchise opportunity that offers the best of both
worlds – franchisees can operate true to their local vision with
customized menu and interior design options, while benefiting from the
support of a national franchise led by an experienced executive team,”
White added.

Growler USA is committed to providing a better craft beverage drinking
experience, which includes offering a variety of menu items, like
burgers, sandwiches, salads and flatbreads, to perfectly pair with each
beverage served. The brand’s corporate chef Garey Hiles is the talent
behind the Growler USA menu. Hiles crafts recipes consistent with
Growler’s True to the Brew system, ensuring flavors,
aromas and appearances complement beverage offerings.

Growler USA is seeking franchise partners to develop pub locations in
all 50 states. Growler USA locations require 2,000 to 2,500 feet of
retail space and no prior food or restaurant experience is needed. The
total investment to become a Growler USA franchisee ranges from $250,000
to $400,000. To learn more about Growler USA and its franchising
