Restaurants and Retail Brands building Loyalty One Guest at a Time.

Restaurant and retail ownership has been a passion of ours from the very beginning when Warren Thompson purchased 31 Bob’s Big Boys in 1992. In 2006, Thompson Hospitality purchased the Austin Grill restaurant chain, followed by the acquisition of the American Tap Room in 2008, the creation of brb (be right burger) in 2011. The American Tap Room, Austin Grill Express and brb brands have expanded to a variety of sites including airports, corporate offices, universities, schools and hospitals across the country.

Thompson Hospitality continues to expand with a variety of brands and new locations. The Willie T’s Lobster Shack launched in April of 2014 with plans for future growth.  Rounding out the portfolio of brands owned and operated by Thompson Hospitality, Ashburn Car Wash offers premium auto washing and detailing with top quality service and value oriented pricing.

Regardless of segment, our goal is to always bring our customers the brightest retail and restaurant concepts with our own unique style of hospitality and guest focus.
