KISS founders bring Rock & Brews to St. Louis area


Rock legends and Rock & Brews Co-Founders Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, along with Co-Founding Partners Dave and Dell Furano and Michael Zislis, announced today the expansion of the rock-inspired Rock & Brews restaurant concept to the St. Louis area. The new restaurant, slated for an October 2016 opening will be the first Rock & Brews in Missouri, and the 18th location in the United States and Mexico.

The rock icons, in partnership with Multi-Unit Franchise Partner Kirk Williams, plan to open the 8,600 square foot family-friendly Rock & Brews this Fall at the Chesterfield Commons Shopping Center (17258 Chesterfield Airport Road in Chesterfield, Missouri.) This marks the third Rock & Brews for Williams, who also owns and operates Rock & Brews restaurants in Oklahoma City and Overland Park, Kansas.

The deal for the site was brokered by Grant Mechlin with St. Louis based Sansone Group along with Larry Leon and Bryan Cornelius with Venture Commercial on behalf of Rock & Brews.  Eddie Cherry with The Staenberg Group represented the landlord.

The new Rock & Brews will have ample seating to accommodate more than 300 guests. Serving the brand’s signature quality American comfort food, Rock & Brews ensures that there is something to satisfy every taste, including local flavors and signature dishes on the menu.

In addition to serving more than 50 craft and international beers, Rock & Brews will dedicate one bar exclusively to local Missouri craft beers.

Dining is available both indoors and outdoors on the large, 1,600 square-foot patio that welcomes kids with a play area. The restaurant is also dog friendly.

The rock-inspired atmosphere features concert lighting, oversized canvas rock artwork, a great wall of rock and concert-style music videos on flat screen televisions.

“I am excited to be a part of the Rock & Brews World tour and with demand growing across the United States, and beyond, I feel privileged to bring Rock & Brews to the St. Louis area as part of the brand’s thoughtful expansion,” said Williams. “Our high-quality food, excellent service, energized atmosphere make Rock & Brews a great place to enjoy a meal with family, friends or co-workers in a fun environment.”

Grand opening activities hosted by Stanley and Simmons will take place prior to the end of the year benefitting veterans and active military. For information about Rock & Brews, visit www.rockandbrews.com.
