SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Former Saints quarterback Drew Brees is once again investing in northwest Louisiana, this time with burgers.

Smalls Sliders is expected to open this summer, making it the second franchise for the company.

Things are moving fast. Just a few weeks ago, there was nothing but a sign at the construction site. But now there’s a building along Youree Drive.

When they do open, cheeseburgers and fries will be the only thing on the menu.

“We’re simple on purpose. That’s our vision here. We keep it simple, one, for our squad members and two, for our guests. There isn’t many options for a reason,” said Jacob Dugas, co-founder of Smalls Sliders.

“That’s a risk, but that’s something we’re willing to gamble on. Because if we can focus on doing that one thing really, really well, we know the product will be great.”

The franchise owner said he plans to start hiring as early as the week of May 16.
