Franchising | Tilted Kilt Pub
Be Part of the best-looking franchise.

Big Entertainment. Bigger Opportunities.

Tilted Kilt® offers a unique pub experience that sets us apart from the competition. We are in the business of lifting spirits—one burger, one beer, one guest and one visit at a time

While the Tilted Kilt® concept is deeply rooted in the tradition of Scottish, Irish and English Pubs, it first came to life in Las Vegas in 2003. As a Celtic-themed sports pub staffed with beautiful Kilt Girls®, the restaurant was an instant success and gained global exposure. While Tilted Kilt® wasn’t originally created to be a franchise, it caught the eye of Ron Lynch—an experienced and savvy restaurant and franchise developer. Lynch then moved the company to its current headquarters in Tempe, Arizona

This amazing experience for customers can translate into amazing opportunities for qualified franchisees.
