DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - Jerry Grisaffi, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Republic of Texas Brands Incorporated (PINKSHEETS: RTXB), announced today that RTXB has entered into a 15 year license agreement with Vince Ngwenya for an 1824 Texas Best Barbecue Restaurant in Pecos, Texas and an additional restaurant in Dallas, Texas, to be opened after the Pecos location.
"We are very excited to have signed our first license agreements with Mr. Ngwenya for Pecos and Dallas. Pecos has strong potential due to the fast casual dining demand created by the oil and gas boom currently underway in West Texas. The demand far outweighs the supply in that region. We are also excited to have our first license agreement in the Dallas area, which is where Republic of Texas Brands' corporate office is located," said Grisaffi.
Mr. Ngwenya indicated that the Pecos location should open around the first of 2013, followed by a Dallas location during the second quarter of 2013. "I am pleased to be on the ground floor of the unique dining opportunity that will exist in the 1824 Texas Best Barbecue restaurants. The smoked meats we will offer will be the best tasting barbecue available," said Mr. Ngwenya.
On November 6, 2012, RTXB announced that it had entered into a co-packing agreement with Bergheim Texas Barbecue to provide all of the smoked meats for RTXB's 1824 Texas Best Barbecue Restaurants. "By having all meats smoked at Bergheim Texas Barbecue, we can provide a consistent flavor and quality unparalleled in fast casual barbecue restaurants today, while keeping our labor costs down at the same time," said Grisaffi.
Mr. Grisaffi also announced that WallStreetCorner.com has completed a thorough in-depth Research Report on RTXB, which will be available for review this week at www.wallstreetcorner.com.
