As a Top 150 Emerging Brand, Matchbox brings a new standard of service to the declining casual dining segment.
In an era of quick-service and on-the-go dining, Matchbox combines an excellent atmosphere with premium ingredients to offer diners a place to spend time.
Matchbox began in a small, matchbox-shaped building in Washington, D.C. in 2003 as a local place to have a beer and some burgers with friends. As the idea began to expand, restaurants began popping up around D.C., and then Virginia, and then Texas and now, their biggest location yet; A 5-million dollar, two-story restaurant in Sunrise, Florida.
Matchbox isn't your typical casual dining restaurant. Matchbox uses all premium ingredients and even makes fresh mozzarella for its pizzas in-house. The design of every location is built previous locations with reclaimed barn wood, red painted iron, and awe-inspiring floating booths. But at the end of the day, the team credits the culture of the restaurant for its success. Watch this episode of the Emerging Brands series to see how Matchbox sets the bar high for casual dining.
