Adam Fleischman’s AdVantage Restaurant Partners announced its partnership with fast-casual barbecue concept Chop Daddy’s. Chop Daddy’s, which opened its first store in the Venice area of Los Angeles, has set a goal of opening as many as 12 locations over the next 4 years.
“Adam and AdVantage are a restaurateur’s dream partners,” says Jon Swire, CEO of Chop Daddy’s. “They appreciate creativity, understand great food, and know how to grow successful restaurant groups.”
“Chop Daddy’s has everything we look for in a concept,” says Adam Fleischman, cofounder and managing director of AdVantage Restaurant Partners. “It’s a delicious, innovative, and thoughtful approach to classic American cuisine that has tremendous scale and appeal.”
Chop Daddy’s opened in 2013 as a collaboration between CEO Jon Swire and competition-tested pitmaster Eric Solton. Chop Daddy’s makes its own rubs and sauces, and smokes all its meats in house. Chop Daddy’s signature sandwich, The Belly Up, is made with smoked barbecue pork belly topped with homemade coleslaw on a brioche roll.
AdVantage expects to fuel Chop Daddy’s expansion over the next few years as the new partners refine the fast-casual concept for scale, develop a bar program, secure additional financing, scout real estate, and open as many as 12 locations across California.
