    CRAVE Franchising LLC, known for its BBQ, jumbo hot dogs, and self-pour beverage walls will be opening 15 new locations so far this year. The popular franchise has also announced its official beverage system partnership with PourMyBeer self-serve technology, offering guests the ultimate drinking experience in each restaurant.

    Guests at CRAVE Hotdogs & Barbecue have the opportunity to select from a wide variety of brews dispensed from PourMyBeer’s self-serve beverage wall, which is stocked full of craft beer, seltzers, and ciders.

We are looking forward to implementing PourMyBeer into our new locations.”

    Josh Goodman, founder and CEO of PourMyBeer shares the same passion for the partnership, “We've been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Crave as they continue to grow their brand. They say that a company is an extension of its owners and working with the owners of Crave and the franchisee owners have been like working with family. We have the same commitment to consistently delivering a great experience for their customers and we look forward to helping them continue to do big things together."

    Since founding the first brick and mortar eatery in 2018, CRAVE has made a notable experience for guests, using delicious comfort food and a unique dining adventure, the self-pour beverage walls being a highlight of the experience.
