ARC Group CEO Richard W. Akam said: “We are pleased to report that our revenues increased 134% to approximately $2.5m for the third quarter of 2018, as we continue to grow both organically and through our recent acquisition of Fat Patty’s.

“We recently announced that we entered into an agreement to acquire the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery. We expect to close this acquisition by the end of the year, which will bring our combined annualised revenue run rate to over $25m.”

“Our goal is to aggressively expand the brand through the addition of new franchises.”
