Description of franchise system

HOULIHAN'S has been famous for outstanding food at a great price ever since they established themselves in the restaurant industry way back in 1972. The Houlihan's menu selection features a brilliant mix of classic American cooking that includes timeless dishes remade in an exciting modern style and delivered to guests with simple but elegant presentations and plating.

Then there is the ever-popular Houlihan's bar. Houlihan's design brings together pop culture, the newest drinks, vendor insights and stylish top brands for a fantastically appealing combination, which results in a desirable liquor blend. This is always the best place to feel the great energy of Houlihan's experience .

Houlihan's pays close attention to the environment that is being created in their restaurants. The sound experience that is found there is not your average Top 40 hits or worn-out classic rock mixes that you might imagine hearing in most restaurants. The Houlihan's playlist pulls from a rich variety of unexploited independent bands, the kind of music that make the customer feel relaxed, flirt with the barkeeper, groove on a barstool, have a another drink and a laugh. Houlihan's even features their playlist in their menus monthly and post the playlist on the restaurant’s website so that there is always a sort of music conversation going on between Houlihan's and the customer, which makes guests feel all the more connected with the place.
