Texas’s First Alcohol-free Bar Starts to Franchise, ArKay House Locations Could Spread Across Texas and the U.S.

Laredo, TX  (RestaurantNews.com)  Less than four years since Reynald Vito Grattagliano started pouring mocktails at ArKay House in Laredo, he is hoping to expand its non-alcoholic bar across Texas and the U.S.

ArKay House opened applications for franchises and CO-OPs on its website this week. Interested business owners can start the process by filling out an inquiry form.

“I’ve been inspired by the dozens of people from across the country who have reached out wanting to bring a radically inclusive, alcohol-free bar to their community,” Reynald Grattagliano said in a release. “I’m honored to offer this opportunity and support the normalization of not drinking alcohol.”

“Since 2011 when I created ArKay, the world’s first alcohol free spirits, I’ve been hustling to put this together in response to the numerous inquiries I’ve gotten from people in and out of state,” Reynald Grattagliano said.
