Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, walk-ons for the LSU basketball team, were driven by their true love of the game. During their time on the team, Brandon and Jack had amazing opportunities to visit the best restaurants around the country. While lucky enough to be living one dream of playing LSU basketball, they were also beginning to create a new dream. In 2001, on a plane ride home from a game the floor plan for Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar was drawn on the back of a napkin. Brandon and Jack submitted their business plan for Walk-On's to one of their professors for a class project. The professor gave them a C, saying their idea needed some work, which only motivated Brandon and Jack even more. After six banks denied them a loan the seventh bank agreed to help turn their dream into reality. Throughout the process of opening Walk-On's, they discovered the ultimate non-negotiable they still abide by today: never stop trying!
