Though best known as the concept co-founded by Kiss frontmen Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, this rock-and-roll-theme casual-dining chain goes out of its way to convey a family-friendly (and dog-friendly) concert environment. Patios and kids’ play areas invite guests to hang out. As expected, rock memorabilia defines the decor and a retail section sells branded merchandise. Looking to extend its “world tour” through franchising, the three-year-old brand named a restaurant-development veteran as its first CEO in November.
