Executive Chef Brings a New Culinary Dawn to Twin Peaks


Twin Peaks  is leading a culinary revolution with the potential to earn its franchise owner impressive returns. It takes a trailblazer to continue creating the delicious and innovative cuisine that exceeds clients’ expectations. And for that reason, we are pleased to introduce to you Alex Sadowsky, executive chef at Twin Peaks. He’s a thoroughly experienced chef, and renowned for helping restaurant brands grow beyond expectations.

New Investment For Franchise Owners

Alex has a Bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management from the Culinary Institute of America. His years of experience involves working in numerous highly ranked restaurants in St. Paul, Minnesota, such as Gabes by the Park, and the Blue Plate Restaurant Company.

In 2015, Alex joined the Whiskey Cake as the Chef de Cuisine, where he went on to develop their menu leading to astronomical success. Then, he became the Interim Regional Chef, and while holding that position, managed to launch multiple other Front Burner Restaurant brands.

As the new executive chef and menu curator at Twin Peaks, Alex has undergone rigorous training to prepare him for the operational research and refinement of the culinary department that will continue as the brand grows. He will also continue to perform extensive site visits to multiple franchise locations to assess their operations, food quality and service, as well as meet one on one with franchisees to gain insight from their ideas and gather suggestions for future menus.

Since joining the company in late 2018, Alex’s goal has been to craft delicious and innovative meal options that will push the boundaries for the bar and grill segment. He prides himself on providing guests with an extensive selection of not just new entrees, food categories and appetizers, but also desserts, drinks and cocktails.

Having already worked with Twin Peak’s Brewing Co.’s brewmaster, Alex has recently helped create a limited edition Mexican lager, called La Guera, that has the potential of becoming a full-time tap on option in the future. He is also in the process of rolling out the latest Twin Peaks kitchen innovations, such as the Cubano Sandwich, Pork Rinds, and Spinach Artichoke Dip.

With the anticipated new flavor introductions under Alex’s culinary leadership, guests can look forward to a new experience whenever they come in. But even with the excitement of new and innovative flavors, Twin Peaks takes pride in the consistency of everything that comes out of their made-from-scratch kitchen, which keeps guests coming back for their favorites.

Twin Peaks’ unique lodge atmosphere featuring wall to wall TVs, creates the authentic, ultimate sports lodge environment the brand is famous for. Plus with every championship game, title match, fight, local rivalry and race always on, guests stay constantly up to date with their favorite teams. Couple that with signature 29° draft beers and robust cocktail menu, and guests are likely to find everything they’re searching for.

Twin Peaks seeks to ensure that franchisees experience return on investment within a few months of setting up. The brand also assists new franchise owners to minimize operational costs by guiding them on how best to organize their location, which in turn translates to higher profit margins. Twin Peaks also prides itself on generating foot traffic to each location with effective and efficient targeted marketing. The franchise process required is simple. Start by filling out the request form. After one discovery meeting and processing the application, qualified candidates will finish by signing the area development.

Once a new franchisee joins Twin Peaks, they are linked to an in-house representative to walk them through the entire set-up process. Twin Peaks also offers comprehensive training to all new franchise owners to enable them to avoid any costly initial mistakes.
