Growing Demand for Craft Beer

The craft beer industry has been experiencing rapid growth over the past decade and shows no signs of slowing down. As more consumers develop a taste for high-quality, unique brews, the demand for craft beer will likely continue to increase. This presents a significant opportunity for brewpub owners who can create and serve high-quality, unique beers.

Why is it a good idea to invest in a beer pub like Voodoo Brewing Co.?

Profit Margins

Craft beer typically has higher profit margins than traditional beer, which often commands a higher price point. Additionally, owning a brewpub franchise allows for the sale of food and other beverages, which can help to diversify revenue streams and increase profitability.

Community Involvement

Brewpubs often become community gathering places where people can come together to enjoy a drink, socialize, and support local businesses. By cultivating a loyal customer base, brewpub franchise owners can build a strong community presence and establish themselves as a destination for locals and tourists alike.

Creative Outlet

Owning a brew pub allows for creative expression in the form of beer brewing. Many brewpub owners enjoy the challenge of developing unique craft beer recipes and experimenting with different brewing techniques. This can be a fulfilling and satisfying creative outlet, which can help to increase overall job satisfaction.

But Why is Voodoo Brewing Co. the One for You?

Award-Winning Craft Beers

Voodoo Brewing Company has won numerous awards for its craft beers, including medals at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. This recognition is a testament to the high quality and creativity of the brewery’s beer offerings.


Voodoo Brewing Company has expanded beyond its original location in Meadville, Pennsylvania, to include additional taprooms in Homestead, Erie, and Pittsburgh. This expansion allows more people to enjoy Voodoo Brewing Company’s craft beer offerings and experience the unique atmosphere of its pubs.

Creative & Experimental Beers

Voodoo Brewing Company is known for its innovative craft beer offerings, often featuring unique flavor combinations and brewing techniques. This creativity and willingness to take risks has helped to set Voodoo Brewing Company apart from other craft breweries.

Voodoo Brewing Company has gained recognition and awards for its high-quality and unique beer offerings, expanded its reach through additional taprooms, and demonstrated a commitment to giving back to its community. These accomplishments may be viewed as “awesome” by some people.

Let’s Meet Our Newest Brewpub Franchise Owner!

Her name is Shannon Shelton. She’s from Biloxi, Mississippi. And she’s EXACTLY the type of person we want to franchise with!

Shannon was nice enough to sit down for a fun Q&A. Follow along and enjoy!

What is your personal/professional background?

I have been in the casino/customer service industry for 29 years.

Shannon Shelton - Voodoo Brewing Co. - Biloxi, MS - 1

What are your personal hobbies or interests?

Going to concerts, festivals, and traveling.

How did you first learn about Voodoo Beer Franchise?

Research into various franchise business opportunities.

Why is Voodoo Brewing Co. the right fit for you?

I fell in love with the beer pub franchise concept immediately as it is the type of business I would frequent as a consumer.

What did you like about Voodoo’s business model?

They disclosed every aspect of the brewery franchise, took time to answer questions, and offered the immediate and ongoing support that I need.

What did you like about meeting Voodoo’s corporate team?

They were very down to earth, not the corporate stuffy type. They were very relaxed and welcoming.

What did you like about the Voodoo Discovery Day?

I enjoyed meeting both the corporate guys and the potential beer pub franchise owners. I also like that they shuttled us around and allowed us to experience the different food and alcohol options that I will be providing. It was very professional.

Shannon Shelton - Voodoo Brewing Co. - Biloxi, MS - 2
Shannon Shelton - Voodoo Brewing Co. - Biloxi, MS - 3

What was the “a-ha” or “lightbulb” moment that made you want to franchise with Voodoo?

I was really sold on the beer franchise concept and excited for how the brewpub franchise concept melds with the local culture here in my area immediately.

Why did you want to become an entrepreneur?

Because my line of work no longer brings me any satisfaction or joy. I was burned out and looking for a way to bring that personal satisfaction and joy back into my life. 

What do you think will make you successful? 

I am exceptionally good at customer service and enjoy meeting and providing services that make my customers happy and satisfied.

What sets Voodoo apart, in your eyes, from other franchise opportunities in the restaurant/hospitality Industry?

I really like the beer franchise concept, but it is the level of training and support that distances Voodoo Brewing Co. from other restaurant franchise concepts I have investigated.

What has been the best part of your experience with the Voodoo Brewing Co. corporate team so far? 

They have all been very professional and hands on so far as punctuality and willingness to work with my schedule. Bill has always been prompt with answering any concern or question I have had.

What advice would you give to a potential Franchise Owner?

I would advise them to follow their dreams, but to really do their homework to determine the best fit for them with the concept, training, and professionalism and personality fit with the corporate team.

What do you look forward to most about owning your own Voodoo brewpub? 

I look forward to bringing something to my area that it doesn’t yet have, I look forward to providing an environment that is both family friendly and fun for a broad demographic and having the authority to run my business as I see most beneficial to my customers.

Ready to Change Your Future?

Of course, owning a brewpub also comes with its challenges, such as the need for significant capital investment, ongoing operational expenses, and regulatory compliance. However, for those who are passionate about craft beer and the hospitality industry, owning a craft brewpub franchise can be a rewarding and profitable investment.

So, enough fluff for now. If you want to join the anti-franchise franchise and set yourself professionally and financially free, head to our craft beer franchise website and let’s get going.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m thirsty.

Meet the Couple Bringing Voodoo to North Carolina!

Getting into the bar/restaurant business can be tricky — even downright scary. Unless it’s a Voodoo Brewing Co. Brew Pub Franchise!


Because we’re the anti-franchise franchise, we don’t bother with corporate BS. We allow our Franchise Owners extraordinary freedom when running their brewpub. We brew our beer—Lacto-Kooler, Voodoo Love Child, Oh Mama, and others—  at our home facility and ship it directly to our Franchise Owners, so they don’t have the added stress of running brewing operations.

Voodoo Brewing Co. - Holly Ridge, North Carolina - 1

We even go a few steps further by creating localized Voodoo logos and food menus based on your area. Not many other franchise breweries can claim that.

However, even with all our epicness, we understand there still may be some uncertainty on your part regarding whether or not to move forward, especially during a time of economic uncertainty.

Studies have shown that when the economy drops, alcohol sales rise. That’s because people want to enjoy their preferred libation no matter what the stock market is doing.

Get this: the craft beer industry saw a 21% sales increase in 2021, a year still in the midst, somewhat, of the COVID-19 pandemic. There’s just something about a familiar-favorite craft beer that makes people feel relaxed.


We’ve put together a little ditty—an interview—with a couple of our new franchise owners where they discuss their previous professional backgrounds, what led them to invest in a franchise, and why a Voodoo Brewpub Franchise.

Follow along below and enjoy!

Future Voodoo Family Member, Meet New Voodoo Family Members,
Jonathan & Melissa Stamper From Holly Ridge, North Carolina

What is your personal/professional background?

I (Jonathan) just retired from 25 years as a U.S. Marine. I was an Engineer Operations Chief responsible for the day-to-day operations, training, and logistics for large-scale exercises and deployments. My wife is a Business Manager for a National Dental Service Organization.

What are your personal hobbies or interests?

We are very active in our local community, volunteering for the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the Veterans Administration. Melissa and I enjoy the coastal life on our off-time; boating, the beach and drinking craft beer.

Voodoo Brewing Co. - Holly Ridge, North Carolina - 2

How did you first learn about the Voodoo Brewpub Franchise?

After looking at other corporate franchises, Voodoo was presented to us by a franchise broker. I laughed at him at first because I thought a brewery was outside our scope until he explained the Voodoo Pub Franchise.

Why is Voodoo Brewing Co. the right fit for you?

U.S. Marines are big on culture. Voodoo brewery franchise has a unique culture that Melissa, I, and our community gravitate towards. For us, Voodoo will provide our local community with an outstanding customer experience.

What did you like about Voodoo’s franchise business model?

That it’s well-structured, simple, and flexible, this franchise business model lets you individualize the location. Individual connections are what drive good business and what keeps customers coming back for more. The franchise’s art, style, and décor are vibrant and inviting.

What did you like about meeting Voodoo’s corporate team?

They were very down-to-earth and welcoming. This was not in a corporate/business setting; very laid back and comfortable. The entire team was very humble and genuine. It was easy to be ourselves.

What did you like about Voodoo Discovery Day?

It was incredible; glad they provided the transportation and a venue close to the hotel! Everything was well choreographed, from the locations to sampling the food, beer, and mixed drinks. Even when the discovery day was over, we all hung out and got to know each other over their fantastic craft beer and beverages. Being able to visit the different locations was a plus.

What was the “a-ha” or “lightbulb” moment that made you want to franchise with Voodoo?

For me, it was the “Anti Franchise” quote presented in their introduction video. It showed me that Voodoo is for the “little guy” just looking for a solid business opportunity and being able to be a part of their unique culture and brand.

Why did you want to become an entrepreneur?

I feel that my career in the military has set me up to be a successful business owner, along with my wife’s management skills in the corporate field. We are confident to execute a plan and own a business of our own. It’s the “American Dream,” the right to be our own boss.

What do you think will make you successful?

My wife and I make a strong, effective team through strong leadership, organizational management, effective communication, and embracing the intangible assets that Voodoo Craft Beer Franchise provides. We are adaptable and like to be challenged.

Voodoo Brewing Co. - Holly Ridge, North Carolina - 4

What sets Voodoo Brewing Co. apart, in your eyes, from other franchise opportunities in the restaurant/hospitality Industry?

That’s easy… The BEER! Also, it’s not a “cookie cutter” franchise; it provides a unique customer experience. The Voodoo culture will connect to the community by breaking the stigma, notion, and connection to the corporate big brother. When a franchise can personalize a customer’s experience, it strengthens community bonds and allows an individual to link to a community member.

What has been the best part of your experience with the Voodoo Brewing Co. corporate team so far?

It’s the Franchise Owner support you receive, the weekly calls, and belonging to the Voodoo team. They are always accessible, and you never feel that you’re alone during the process of establishing your franchise.

What advice would you give to a potential Craft Beer Franchise Owner?

Get in now! You won’t be disappointed, do your mutual discovery and ensure you’re a good fit!

What do you look forward to most about owning your own Voodoo brewpub?

Becoming an owner-operator with my wife and providing top-tier craft beer and food to my local community in a good vibe establishment.

So, What’d Ya Say!

We hope you liked reading about the Stamper’s Voodoo Brewery Franchise journey as much as we enjoyed talking about it with them.

If this sounds like the franchise business opportunity for you, please don’t wait any longer to contact us HERE about starting your Discovery Process. Our franchise territories are selling fast, just like our craft beers, so the time to invest is now before yours dries up.

And if you see some of our beers at your local bottle shop, grab a case. You won’t be disappointed.

Voodoo Brewing Co., the fastest-growing, Pennsylvania-founded brewpub in the galaxy, is also one of the best in the franchising world. We make it easy for people with little to no experience to open, own, and operate a thriving beer pub.

Our straightforward franchise business model works like this: you invest in a location, brew all the beer at our headquarters, and then ship it to our Franchise Owners to serve it to hundreds of their closest friends.

Unlike the other thousands claiming the same, we’re the anti-corporate, non-cookie-cutter brewing company. We put our money where our mouths are—and our beer to provide a unique experience within the brewpub world. 

Because of our methods and dedication to the craft, our locations, and Franchise Owners have become beacons in their local communities, offering a safe, comfortable, and fun place to eat great food and drink cold beer.

Voodoo Brewery Franchise Heads West

When Voodoo started franchising in 2018, it quickly expanded to states like Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Texas. However, it wasn’t until recently—January 28, to be exact—that they opened their doors in their most western state.

You were a bit mistaken if you thought Reno, Nevada, needed more top craft breweries. Voodoo opened its doors at the end of January in the revamped Plumgate Center thanks to Mike and Amy Hitchcock.

The Hitchcock’s kept with the theme of Voodoo’s fun culture by decorating the inside with bright lights and brilliantly painted murals that set the vibe inside. There’s also a large seating area with long picnic tables and plenty of bar seating for the belly-uppers.

If you’re familiar with this brand but worried they wouldn’t have some of their best and most popular craft beers, relax. This pub franchise gets all of their beers brewed at and shipped from Voodoo’s home brewery in Meadville, Pennsylvania. So you and your friends will be able to sip on favorites like Lacto-Kooler, Oh Mama, Voodoo Love Child, and Where Our Secrets Go, among others.

All of those craft beers will undoubtedly make you hungry, and there’s plenty of food to go around. Relax with a bowl of beer cheese mac, a signature pizza, and a plate of wings featuring flavors like cajun rub, garlic buffalo, and good vibes BBQ.

So, if you live anywhere near Reno, Nevada, you’d be a fool not to visit one of the best craft beer breweries west of the Mississippi. Their address is 550 W. Plumb Lane, Suite E.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m very hungry and thirsty.

Finally, We’re in the Sunshine State

It took a while, but we’re ultimately joining the list of craft breweries in the St. Petersburg, Florida, metropolitan area!

We’re moving into a former catering hall and plan on staying for a while. Our extensive renovations include adding two colossal garage doors for easy entry and exit, plenty of indoor and sidewalk seating, an upstairs arcade, and a spot for live music so local musicians can rock out.

Voodoo Brewing Co. Beer Franchise Is Growing - 2

Like our other craft beer franchise locations, all the beer will be shipped from our manufacturing facility in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

Head to our Facebook page for all the latest updates on the opening of this new beer pub franchise location.

Love is in the Air… And Other Stuff

If a Voodoo Brewing Co. brewpub comes to your neighborhood, don’t sleep on the exciting events we love to host in-house.

This Valentine’s Day, we played host to all sorts of shenanigans at several locations in Pennsylvania and the East Coast.

We started the weekend off with an I’m A Loner Party for people to make new friends and spread good vibes throughout the night.

For the people who actually have a special someone in their life, Saturday was for them! We offered romantic dinners for two featuring delicious food, original Voodoo craft beers, and specialty cocktails.

And then, on Sunday before the Eagles and Chiefs went to war in the Big Game, we offered huge party platters and take-and-bake pizzas. And, of course, craft beer to go.

When one of our brewpub franchises opens near you, don’t miss out on all of our fantastic events.

We Like to Give Back

Making and drinking craft beer is fun, but at Voodoo beer franchise we also love to give back to the communities that support us in any way we can.

This year Kyle Hauser, General Manager of Voodoo Brewing in Erie, Pennsylvania, hosted a polar plunge with all proceeds and donations going to the Special Olympics.

The event had other fun activities like a dunk tank and raffles and featured specialty brewed beers available only on-site for the event.

Watch Kyle discuss all the happenings on the local news right HERE.

Get to Know Our Newest Craft Beer Franchise Owners, Virgil and Jennifer Matos!

1. What is your personal/professional background?

I (Virgil) just retired from 22 years as a Federal Agent for the Department of Homeland Security, and now I’m coaching high school baseball. My wife, Jennifer, had worked for several different restaurants as a server throughout the years and was a claims adjuster for an insurance company before we started a family. Once the kids came, she decided to become a stay-at-home mom.

2. What are your personal hobbies or interests?

We are both very active volunteers in our community, serving in the local elementary schools and little league programs. I (Virgil) love all things sports-related and play ice hockey for two local adult league teams.


3. How did you first learn about the Voodoo Brewery franchise?

We first learned about Voodoo when we were looking for different franchising opportunities. Although, we didn’t know there was a difference between Voodoo Brewing Co. and the Voodoo Ranger craft beer products.

4. Why is Voodoo Brewing Co. the right fit for you?

We fell in love with the culture that Voodoo Brewpub has created and how they are community oriented. We also like that it’s inclusive for all ages so that families will feel welcome.


5. What did you like about Voodoo’s franchise business model?

The support and sense of community within the franchisees and the weekly check-in calls—the freedom to shape our Voodoo Brew Pub to fit our community and support our local community by sourcing locally.

6. What did you like about meeting Voodoo’s corporate team?

The team at Voodoo Brewing Franchise was very welcoming and relaxed. They made you feel at ease, and they explained everything in detail. No one was anything like we expected; honestly, they were down-to-earth and very open.

Virgil and Jennifer Matos: Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise Owners - 3

7. What did you like about Voodoo Discovery Day?

Discovery day was exciting! It was great getting to sample the food and craft beer and to see it in real-time, not just have someone explain how it works. The best part was after the “formal presentation.” It was great just getting to know everyone in a not-so-formal setting.

8. What was the “a-ha” or “lightbulb” moment that made you want to franchise with Voodoo Brewing Co.?

In complete honesty, I think it was just a pipe dream at first. Then we went to the funeral of a friend who passed away unexpectedly. It made us realize that life is short, and we didn’t want to regret not trying to make a Voodoo brewpub work for us.

9. Why did you want to become an entrepreneur?

We never really thought about becoming entrepreneurs exactly. However, Jennifer has always had small multi-level marketing (MLM) businesses on the side of running the household to help her with her creative outlet. She’s always had the urge to start something new to help support the family.

10. What do you think will make you successful?

After 25 years of marriage, we learned that we could be successful at anything as long as we communicated and worked as a team. We plan to bring that into our lives with our Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise.

11. What sets Voodoo Craft Brewery apart, in your eyes, from other franchise opportunities in the restaurant/hospitality Industry?

Voodoo’s Franchise Owner support and the freedom to connect each individual location to its specific community was a huge draw. The enthusiasm that the Voodoo Brewing Co. team brings is contagious!

12. What has been the best part of your experience with the Voodoo Brewing Co. corporate team so far?

Definitely Discovery Day, and having the time after the scheduled session to hang out and get to know everyone.

13. What advice would you give to a potential Franchise Owner?

To put a lot of thought into it, take the time to research everything you can about the company and concept and if you’re comfortable, jump in and take the chance. Everything in life comes with a risk; trust the process.

14. What do you look forward to most about owning your own Voodoo brewpub?

We look forward to sharing Voodoo and the culture with our family, friends, and neighborhood. We want it to be a place where everyone can come together, feel welcome, and relax for a bit—who knows, maybe make a new friend.

Another Year With More Craft Beer

Another Year With More Craft Beer

Another Year With More Craft Beer

Voodoo Brewing Co. closed out another great year with more flavorful craft beer and some incredible brewery franchise achievements.

We added 15 new franchise owners, some with multiple units in nine territories in nine states, including Texas, Indiana, and Tennessee, among many others across  the country.

We also collected some hardware along the way by being called a 2022 Top New & Emerging Franchise by So, yeah, we know what we’re doing.

But enough of us and how awesome our beer franchise brand is. Let’s get to know a few of our newest Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise Owners.

Vinny and Leisa Leo - Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise Owners

Meet the Leos! 

We are so excited to announce two of our newest Franchise Owners in Leisa and Vinny Leo! They left their day jobs because their hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, was lacking in quality craft beer. 

As a couple with a great passion for craft beer and entrepreneurship, it’s hard to find a better Voodoo Beer Franchise Owner fit than the Leos. Leisa and Vinny’s early background in the restaurant industry and the experience they’ve gained throughout their professional careers make them eager to begin the newest chapter of their lives as co-Owners of Knoxville’s future favorite craft brewpub.

But first, who the heck are the Leos?

For over two decades, Vinny has honed his professional background in the life science industry’s IT compliance and controls sector. He is looking forward to bringing the unique experience he has acquired to his new role as a Voodoo brewpub Franchise Owner!

His lovely wife, Leisa, has been focused on her dedicated career as a certified public accountant (CPA). After spending nearly 15 years in one of the most important roles of all—being a mother. In Leisa’s words, opening a Voodoo craft beer franchise is a great chance to work with Vinny as her partner both in life and in business, and she sees their new business venture as a chance to reignite her passion for learning. And what better thing to learn about than craft beer?

They Didn’t Need Restaurant Experience… But They Have It

One of the most common questions the franchise leadership team at Voodoo gets asked is if a potential franchisee needs any restaurant experience to own and operate a brew pub. And the answer is not really. In fact, many of our current Franchise Owners come from different walks of life without a shred of restaurant or bar industry experience before Voodoo. It helps, but it isn’t necessary. However, the Leos’ previous restaurant experience will go a long way toward their success as craft beer Franchise Owners!

Their restaurant experience started a long time ago. Leisa and Leo have done everything from bussing positions and servers to management roles. The Leos are confident that they’ll be able to apply their vast knowledge of the inner workings of a restaurant to the successful management of their Voodoo brewpub. Since our simple franchise business model eliminates a LOT of the typical headaches of running a bar or restaurant, keeping staff to a minimum with our European beer-hall style of service, Leisa and Vinny will be able to avoid some of the issues they surely remember from their days working at restaurants!

Passion & Commitment

We believe integrating passion with business acumen is an essential mix- the “special sauce” that makes our pubs different from those cheesy, cookie-cutter bar chains out there. With their real-world business experience and genuine passion for what Voodoo has to offer its customers, Vinny and Leisa bring this core value to life. According to the couple, one of their greatest inspirations for wanting to own a franchise was having control over the business process.

It’s essential for Franchise Owners to love and appreciate a brand as much before investing. With such a passion for the brand and business model, we can’t wait to see the new heights Vinny and Leisa take us to with their Voodoo pub franchise!

Good luck in Rocky Top, Vinny and Leisa!

Fahad and Manal - Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise Owners

Goodbye to their 9 to 5s

What are the faces of a couple of people who told their traditional corporate jobs to kick rocks and bet on themselves? 

Meet Fahad and Manal Keen, the couple bringing Voodoo Brewing Company’s refreshing craft brews to Dallas, Texas. 

We’re so excited to see that they are making Voodoo part of their life, and we can’t wait to share their fascinating journey with you.

What’s Their Deal?

Manal spent the last 15+ years in the financial services industry. She ran strategy and finance in three sectors throughout her career: real estate, treasury/investment, and wealth management. About a year and a half ago, she left her corporate job to pursue her passions and become a teacher, becoming the first woman at the University of North Texas at Dallas to teach finance classes at the school. 

Her husband, Fahad, spent the last 15 years in business operations, analysis, and data. He is passionate about making an impact on his local community. In his free time, he coaches youth sports and plays sports himself.

Time for New Careers

When you’re in the market for a new career or a lifestyle change, you have at least one “Ah Ha” moment.

When we asked them what made them choose Voodoo Brewing Co., Manal explained, “When I was leaving my corporate job, I wanted to do something in a different niche: helping communities, bringing people together. I didn’t wanna go back to 9-5.”

So, her husband helped her research and ran across our Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise video on YouTube. The video flowed with why she left her corporate job. Fahad called her to the computer and told her, “you need to watch this; they sound like you.”

Manal could see that we also want to bring people together and create a safe haven for people to come together and enjoy themselves. That shared belief is what led them to seal the deal with the Voodoo craft beer franchise.

Onwards & Upwards

If you’re tired of the corporate chaos, the 9-5, or the ongoing commute of agony you need to endure to work towards someone else’s dream: It may be a sign to start looking at other career opportunities, the same way Fahad and Manal did.

“Many people leave corporate jobs because of culture goals you want for yourself to match up with a franchise if you’re new to business ownership, a franchise is almost like a guard rail taking a risk, but you have support. Having a foundation helps build knowledge and take away some risk.”

We know Fahad and Manal will be another Voodoo Brewing success story. They took a leap of faith coming to us. They said goodbye to their 9-5 and jumped head first into a pool of entrepreneurship. However, there’s nothing for them to worry about because we’re going to be their “guardrail” every step of the way.

Cheers to the newest Voodoo-ers!

A Man, a Brewery, and  Dream

Indianapolis, Indiana, is home to so many incredible things: the NCAA Hall of Champions, a pretty good zoo (no San Diego International Zoo, but no big deal), St. Elmo Steakhouse, and other cool stuff. But thanks to a gentleman by the name of David Rivotto, Indy now has one of the best craft breweries in the country: Voodoo Brewing Co.

From Selling Medical Devices to Ice-Cold Brews

David has always been a go-getter with a drive to succeed. Before he decided to open his own bar franchise location, he was a surgical sales representative for a medical device company. Quite the career change!

David Rivotto - Voodoo Brewing Co. Franchise Owner

With Voodoo Brewing, he’ll do more than build a pub franchise he can be proud of. He’ll create memories and start a new and different journey than what he’s been doing the last few years.

Outside of Voodoo, David is a workout fanatic, a lifelong learner, and a devoted husband and father! Now that he’s a Franchise Owner, we can say he’s the complete package!

David, Meet Voodoo, Voodoo, Meet David

We met David at our Discovery Day event, and we immediately knew this would be a match made in Heaven. And, surprise! He knew it too.

Our corporate team embodies everything it means to be part of Voodoo Brewing Co. If you mesh with them, you mesh with Voodoo. That’s just how it works! Our team is passionate about what they do and wants to see Franchise Owners succeed. When we asked David what he liked about the corporate team, he mentioned, “The genesis of the concept, the journey that has been taken, and the passion they have for the product.”

“Touring the brewing facility and getting educated on the process, seeing how they invest in equipment for growth and the future, touring the individual brewery locations, and tasting the menu and the liquid.” If we had to guess, we’re sure tasting the menu and the liquid was his favorite part, but we appreciate him mentioning the rest!

See You, David, and Others in 2023!

We know David will be successful with us because he embodies the three most important attributes: drive, determination, and grit. He’s got everything he needs to be successful with us, and we can’t wait to see the mark he leaves on Indianapolis, Indiana. If you’re in the area, stop by, meet David, and see if becoming a craft beer Franchise Owner is the right option for you! David has one piece of advice for anyone interested: “Do research, ask questions, do Discovery Day and enjoy the ride.”

We’d love to keep going, but we’re so pumped for David and what he’s bringing to Indianapolis that we’re going to cut it short, crack open a Voodoo Love Child, and raise one up to Indy’s newest brew pub.
