LINEBACKER TO RESTAURATEUR

When Gary Brackett enters one of his nine Indianapolis-area Stacked Pickle restaurants, it’s like he’s stepping back into Lucas Oil Stadium. Former Defensive Captain of the Super Bowl XLI winning Indianapolis Colts, Gary still feels that rush of adrenaline whenever he walks into a Stacked Pickle.

The transition from run-stopper to restaurant owner came quickly. After starting as a silent partner with Stacked Pickle founder Chris Long, Gary bought Long out and attacked the Franchise sports bar & restaurant business with the same fury with which he once used to dominate football. 

When I was finished playing, one of the questions I had was, “What type of business could I have that people would come give it a try?” I wanted the business to stand on its own merits, where even if they didn’t know about me, they’d come in.

Gary Brackett

CEO and Founder

After retirement, Gary wanted to coach football but, instead, he found a new form of coaching in Stacked Pickle. He came to know the values of excellence, community, and personal commitment in winning Super Bowl XLI. Now he’s taken these values to a deeper level and applied them to growing Stacked Pickle Sports Bar Franchises into another Game Changer.

Married with three children, Brackett started planning for his post-NFL career long ago. As an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers, Gary never banked on having such a successful pro football career. 

After being given an opportunity, Gary became a fixture on the Colts’ defense as the starting middle linebacker. When his team won the Super Bowl in 2007, he was a defensive captain.

With an unquenchable appetite for ultimate success that hasn’t waned, Gary has turned his focus to making Stacked Pickle a success in every market across the country. When asked how excited he is to share his Franchise sports bar model with new Franchise Partners across the country, Gary responded:

Individual success is short-term and in the long run it’s unfulfilling. To be truly fulfilled in life, for me, you have to win as a Team and I can’t wait to build a team of Franchise Partners to share the victories with.

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Molded after the drive of a Super Bowl Champion, we make it a point to strive for legendary greatness in every aspect of the term. From our communities to our sports bar & restaurants, we are constantly looking for ways to beat any and all of our competition. Here are a few ways that we stand out:

COMMUNITY LEADERS

When we open in a new market, our goal isn’t to be just another franchise sports bar – our goal is to become a community staple. Our Franchise Owners and General Managers are “coaches in their community” that use local events to drive customers through the door. These events include, but are definitely not limited to: trivia nights, painting parties, non-profit functions and fundraisers, as well as local holiday events.

BIG BAR LOOK/LOCAL BAR FEEL

We are successfully able to combine the advantages of a national concept with the feel of a local bar. Customers walk through the front door to a warm greeting from both the hostess and their neighbor from down the street. They can then sit and enjoy their favorite drink with dinner while the kids enjoy their chicken tenders and fried pickles. Community events and “Kids Eat Free” nights keep local families coming in the door, as well.

MENU SELECTION

Our menu is unique, especially compared to most of our “competition.” We offer far more than the standard “bar fare.” In addition to our fresh-never-frozen wings and award-winning hamburgers, we offer diverse selection of gluten-free, vegan, and low-fat options for our customers to enjoy – all at affordable prices. This is just another small way for us to show our community how much we respect and care about them.

BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED RESTAURANTS

We offer a classy, clean environment with an exciting and celebratory atmosphere surrounded by TVs, local sports memorabilia, and humorous wall art. The bar area is sectioned off to give the restaurant a comfortable family-friendly feel and each location has outdoor patio seating decorated with plants, lights, or a lounge area for enjoyment with a view. Our sports bar franchises are all hand-picked locations capable of delivering delicious results to every community.
