Our speaker on Wednesday was Aubrey's Restaurant founder and owner Randy Burleson. hen he was 19, Burleson got his first job in the restaurant business at the now defunct Stephen's CFO David Belcher, Randy Burleson and Eddy Ford
...
Burleson convinced a group of investors to finance the building of the first Aubrey's Restaurant in Farragut in 1992 at the age of 25. e applied many of the principles that he learned in MBA school to his restaurant by thinking of the kitchen as a manufacturing operation and the restaurant as a production business. He attributed much of his early success at his first restaurant on Campbell Station Road to good fortune. The opening of a new post office nearby, the opening of the Farragut 10 Movie Theater and school coupons all gave his fledgling restaurant a boost.
Randy now owns 12 restaurants, including eight Aubrey's locations, the Sunspot,Bistro by the Tracks, Stephano's Pizza and Barley's Tap Room. He bought The Sunspot from bankruptcy court and convinced the court to finance the purchase. His restaurants employ nearly 800 people and he expects $25 million in revenue this year.

Randy Burleson, the founder of Aubrey's Restaurant Group, which includes Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria in Knoxville's Old City, as well as six Aubrey's locations (with a new one slated to open soon in Oak Ridge), Sunspot, Bistro by the Tracks and Stefano's Pizza, first announced plans to expand the Barley's brand to Maryville last August.
...
"Randy feels it's time to get started."
Burleson first started looking at buying the building, located at 128 W. Broadway Ave., after owner Roy Garrett closed his store in 2007 after more than 40 years as a business in downtown Maryville.
...
Barley's Taproom in Knoxville's Old City first opened in 1998 as part of a franchise that began in Asheville, N.C. In 2002 Burleson purchased the establishment, and during the past decade it's become a go-to spot for diners and fans of live music alike.

"Everybody still calls it Roy's Records," Randy Burleson, founder of Aubrey's Restaurant Group, tells Roy Garrett, owner of the record shop that existed for 40 years in the 100-block of Broadway Avenue, most recently in the building where Burleson opened his Maryville location of Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria on July 15.

"About two weeks ago, they walked me through the building, and the first thing I noticed was your permit for seating capacity," Garrett told Burleson.

"As long as we have Roy's permission, we are going to pay homage to Roy's Records," Burleson said.

Burleson first started looking at buying the building, located at 128 W. Broadway Ave, after Garrett closed his store in 2005, but the building needed some work, including a $200,000 roof repair.
...
The building is in "perfect condition now," Burleson said, with new restrooms and an elevator. But there are touches that harken to the old days: plaster has been removed to expose the original brick and upstairs you can see where the movie theater sign was, he noted.
"This is the prettiest building in downtown Maryville, but it still feels like a Barley's," Burleson said.
Almost not Barley's
It almost wasn't a Barley's, though.
"The original idea was Roy's Real BBQ, but I'm not a good pitmaster," Burleson laughed.
