Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, founded July 2008, is a full-service casual restaurant and bar that prides itself on being innovative and entertaining. With over 100 TVs, and a large selection of hand crafted cocktails and craft beer, it’s every sports fan’s dream. Arooga’s focuses on combining exceptional food and beverages, with unique concepts, and proprietary operational strategies.
This innovative hot spot is also the first full service Certified Green Restaurant in the state of Pennsylvania. To achieve this they’ve completely removed styrofoam from all locations, they’ve begun recycling their grease and cardboard, using nontoxic cleaning and chemical products, and finally they’ve installed energy efficient hand-dryers and water-less urinals in the restrooms. Arooga’s understands the importance of securing a safe environment for future generations.
The restaurant currently has 10 corporate locations in Pennsylvania with locations currently under development in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Long Island, New Jersey and Chicago. Recently Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar has signed their sixth and largest franchise agreement which will allow them to more than double their national footprint. This Area Representative Agreement with the Sporting Group, LLC, will assist Arooga’s in developing 50 locations, in Florida and Georgia, over the next eight years.
Pam Price, co-owner of The Sporting Group, LLC and Pro Managers, LLC, states, “we are confident in the direction that Arooga’s leadership is taking the brand and feel that this is just the beginning of a long and profitable relationship.” Price admires the company’s brand integrity, the quality of their product, their cutting-edge technology and their unit economics. She believes all these factors will pair nicely with The Sporting Group’s growth strategy for the state of Florida and Atlanta markets.
