The Tin Star Story

Tin Star opened its first location near Downtown Dallas in 1999 with the vision to deliver great food, value priced, in an engaging atmosphere - quick. Tin Star keeps guests coming back with spirited, aggressive flavor profiles and uniquely different food that's addictive. Tin Star's menu has a Southwestern orientation that includes the flavors of Texas and beyond, but the principal ingredient in Tin Star's food and in their people is integrity. Though quick preparation and delivery is certainly a focus, every menu item is made from scratch on site with high-quality, fresh ingredients.

Tin Star is an emerging leader in the "quick-casual" dining category, combining an exciting, comfortable, family friendly atmosphere with a high-quality menu and an innovative limited-service casual format that minimizes waiting time. Guests are passionate about leading-edge menu items with unexpected twists, such as Tempura Shrimp Tacos with fruit pico de gallo and the habit-forming Bleu Cheese Bacon Burger-a cooked-to-order burger topped with bacon, crumbled bleu cheese, chipotle sauce, lettuce, and hand-battered fried onion strings all rolled into a flour tortilla.

A Great Opportunity

Tin Star is seeking energetic, motivated restaurateurs with an unrelenting commitment to Guest service, quality and freshness. We're proud of our concept, and we're excited to find qualified, experienced franchisees who share our passion for great food, fantastic flavors and the Tin Star spirit of hospitality.

The Tin Star team has worked hard to put together a franchise program that includes support related to restaurant design, operations, training and development and marketing. Rich Hicks, President, has extensive experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Beginning with the grand opening of the restaurant, Tin Star will provide assistance with a set of guidelines for advertising and implementation of marketing activities and promotions.
