Big Whiskey's Opens Doors in Siloam Springs!!
The Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce is so glad to welcome Big Whiskey’s to the Chamber family and to the community of Siloam Springs! Big Whiskey’s has been open for business since July 24th and offers a great variety of “the best food and drinks in town” said Shane Miller. Shane is the owner of Big Whiskeys - Siloam Springs as well as the Big Whiskeys in Bentonville. There are currently plans to open a Fayetteville location this fall and another NWA location that has not been chosen yet.
Big Whiskeys first location opened in Shane’s hometown of Springfield, Missouri in 2006. Shane always enjoyed going to Big Whiskeys when visiting his hometown after college. In 2014, after spending a few years learning the restaurant business at Walmart, Shane contacted Big Whiskey’s to see what it would take for him to partner with them and open a location in Northwest Arkansas. In 2015 Shane became the first franchisee of Big Whiskey's and in 2017 the Bentonville location was opened. “It took quite a bit of time, but after getting the operations well-oiled there, I started looking for new locations in NWA and Siloam Springs caught my eye because of the large population, steady employment base, amazing growth and lack of restaurant options in town” said Shane. Shane decided on the current location through cold calling Realtors in Siloam Springs and “once we got a deal put together, we worked as fast as we could, even through a pandemic, to get it open as soon as possible” Shane explained.
For the existing locations in Bentonville and Siloam, Shane plans to continue to create an outstanding work environment for the employees so they will continue to provide outstanding service and food for the guests. The mission for Big Whiskeys, according to owner Shane Miller, is “to make people leaving our business happier than they were when they arrived”. Big Whiskey’s is definitely known for their amazing happy hour and drink specials every day of the week! Be sure to check them out at their website here or Facebook page here.
