Your Twin Peaks Franchise Menu

When you partner with Twin Peaks, you never have to worry about planning a menu. When patrons visit your restaurant, they’ll expect the same menu items found at other Twin Peaks locations they’ve enjoyed. And this is precisely what you’ll provide. Twin Peaks is constantly developing new from-scratch recipes, but here are a couple of menu items people clamor for:

Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich

Featuring pulled pork smoked in-house daily, topped with a crisp and refreshing bacon slaw and pickles, and finished off with a tangy Carolina BBQ sauce, the Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich is both tasty and filling and goes best with 22 oz. mugs filled with 29° beer.

Sweet N’ Smoky Ribs

Served in both half and full racks, the Sweet N’ Smoky Ribs are a St. Louis style pork rib smoked in-house every day. They’re smothered in a smoky sweet BBQ sauce and served with side orders of 4-cheese smoky mac n’ cheese and bacon slaw.
