Arizona restaurant concepts Hash Kitchen and The Sicilian Butcher expand to DFW

Hash Kitchen, a popular brunch destination touting over-the-top experiences, and The Sicilian Butcher, a contemporary craft meatball and charcuterie bar, are set to expand their presence beyond Arizona. The Maggiore Group, in partnership with the Savory Fund, a Utah-based private equity firm, has announced plans to open in Fort Worth. Six new Hash Kitchen locations across three states and three new The Sicilian Butcher locations in Texas are in the company’s immediate plans.

Hash Kitchen and The Sicilian Butcher will debut this spring. Brunch-focused Hash is set to open May 2 at 3200 Tracewood Way, Suite 110, Fort Worth, while Butcher, a modern craft meatball and charcuterie bar concept, will open right next door in June. 

These locations mark the beginning of the brands’ Texas expansion over thenext year, with three more Hash Kitchens coming to Pearland, Webster, and San Antonio; and two additional The Sicilian Butcher locations coming to North Dallas and San Antonio.

“We were born to be in Texas. Everything’s bigger in Texas, and everything’s bigger at Hash Kitchen and The Sicilian Butcher!” said Chef Joey Maggiore, who co-founded the experiential brands with his wife, Cristina Maggiore, and their business partner, Flora Tersigni. “From the world’s biggest Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary Bar to 5-foot charcuterie boards, our dishes bring the flavor, the party, and the wow factor.”

Hash Kitchen features a chef-driven menu, a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, and a deliciously fun DJ on the weekends. It currently has seven locations in Arizona and one in Utah.

The Sicilian Butcher is a modern casual restaurant focused on craft meatballs, charcuterie platters, from-scratch pasta, and innovative takes on traditional Italian cuisine. Offerings include a build-your-own cannoli bar, pastries, gelato, and other Sicilian sweets. It currently has three locations in Arizona.

Savory, an innovative private equity firm investing in emerging restaurant concepts, acquired Hash Kitchen in 2021 and The Sicilian Butcher in 2022. Together, they will grow both concepts across the country.  

“Both Hash Kitchen and The Sicilian Butcher are one-of-a-kind dining experiences,” said Andrew K. Smith, co-founder and managing partner at Savory. “Joey, Cristina, and Flora have been incredible partners, and we’re excited to grow these bombshell brands in Texas and communities all over the country.”

The expansion is part of a broader growth strategy for the Savory Fund, which has contributed to the growth and replication of brands such as Swig, R&R BBQ, Pincho, Via 313 Pizzeria, Mo’ Bettahs Hawaiian Style Food, 86 Repairs, Saigon Hustle, Hash Kitchen, and The Sicilian Butcher.

Maggiore has plans to expand Hash Kitchen and The Sicilian Butcher beyond the announced locations.
