In June 2001, he will be opening the latest restaurant in Minneapolis, Minnesota.Copeland created a franchising program that took the concept into major markets around the United States. Now, there are over forty stores both, company-owned and franchise operations, in fifteen states across the U.S. Over the past 9 years, Copeland created a number of other successful restaurant concepts throughout suburban New Orleans and the surrounding areas.
