Twin Peaks Corp. has revoked the franchise agreement with the Waco location following the shoot-out that left eight dead, 18 injured and led to the arrest of about 160 people, according to the Statesman’s Nicole Chavez. The violence between the biker gangs also led the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission to issue a seven-day suspension to the restaurant. For more details on this story, check out Chavez’s report on Statesman.com. A point of clarification: the South Austin location of Twin Peaks is not owned by the same franchisee as the Waco location. I have a call out to the Round Rock location to determine their ownership. For more on the Texas roots of the Dallas-based chain that started 10 years ago, check out this story from the Statesman’s Gary Dinges.
