New restaurant to bring ‘Taste of Louisiana’ to Garden City

GARDEN CITY – Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux has signed an area development agreement with Amro Samy to introduce the award-winning restaurant to the Sunflower State. Samy plans to open the first Kansas Walk-On’s restaurant in Garden City.

“We’re very excited to welcome Amro to Walk-On’s winning team as a franchisee,” said Walk-On’s Founder and CEO Brandon Landry. “We can’t wait to break into the new market of Kansas and bring a Taste of Louisiana to more of the country. We look forward to working alongside Amro, and we believe his experience will drive Walk-On’s to even more success further across the state following his Garden City opening.”

At Walk-On’s, each dish is made from scratch, using fresh ingredients to bring its mouthwatering, Louisiana cuisine to life. The diverse menu features unique twists on game-day staples and upscale takes on Louisiana mainstays, such as Crawfish Etouffee, Duck & Andouille Gumbo and Krispy Kreme Donut Bread Pudding.

About Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux

Samy joins the Walk-On’s family with decades of experience in the hospitality industry. As a multi-concept operator, he currently co-owns five Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom locations in Kansas. Prior to joining the restaurant industry, Samy worked in the private country club industry managing several venues.

After discovering Walk-On’s at a restaurant convention, Samy visited Walk-On’s area locations and fell in love with the brand’s game-day atmosphere and unique Louisiana cuisine.

“We’re proud to add Walk-On’s to our portfolio and introduce the best-in-class brand to the great state of Kansas,” Samy said. “We’re very familiar with the Garden City area and are confident that Walk-On’s family atmosphere, energetic staff, community involvement and scratch-made, Louisiana-inspired dishes will be the perfect fit.”

Based in Baton Rouge, Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux was founded in 2003 by Brandon Landry, a former walk-on basketball player at LSU.

Leaning on the true spirit of a walk-on and building a winning culture, the brand is rapidly expanding across the United States. Its Louisiana-inspired menu features food and drinks made from scratch daily.

Walk-On’s All-American Team serves up a game-day experience in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere that ensures every guest is a winner.

Committed to supporting the communities it serves, Walk-On’s local chef will visit Garden City High School to teach cooking classes as a way to educate future culinary leaders. Additionally, the new restaurant plans to support the Garden City Community College through sponsorships with the school’s athletics programs.
