Founder, Co-Owner and CEO

Brandon Landry has always been driven to succeed. As a high school basketball player at Catholic High in Baton Rouge, La., Brandon recognized his strong internal drive to succeed and compete at the highest level.

When high school ended though, his passion for competing was just beginning. His longtime dream was to be a member of his hometown Louisiana State University’s Tiger basketball team. The fact that he wasn’t recruited didn’t deter him. Hard work and dedication earned him a spot on the team as a walk-on and he played from 1997 – 2000. It was during this time that the idea for Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar was born.

Since those early days at the first Walk-On’s location in the shadow of Tiger Stadium, the same commitment that drove Brandon to succeed on the court has enabled him to succeed as a Restauranteur. Within the next 12 months, Walk-On’s will grow to an impressive 30 locations with many more coming soon across the country.

Brandon is a member of numerous community organizations.

Brandon is committed to more then just Walk-On’s, though. He is active in organizations that support the success of his industry and his community and that commitment has earned him an impressive list or awards and recognition.
