A group plans to open a Twin Peaks franchise restaurant in Maplewood this year, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.
An operating partner told the Business Journal they expect the Maplewood location to open this summer, along with one in Chesterfield.
The Maplewood location will be housed in the former Olive Garden at 2351 Maplewood Commons Drive. The Olive Garden closed on short notice in August 2015.
‘Scantily clad’ waitresses serve beer and food to sports-watching customers at the restaurant. It is often compared to Hooters, the Business Journal reports.
The restaurant will staff between 125 and 175 employees, according to the Business Journal.

Update: Maplewood Assistant City Manager Anthony Traxler said Tuesday that the new restaurant is a ‘permitted use’ under Maplewood zoning, so they do not need Plan Commission approval.
