Many are asking what is going on in Lubbock, TX these days and why there’s a rumble of enthusiasm and economic interest in the dusty west texas land. With a recent survey coming out that named Lubbock as the 6th easiest place to live in the U.S. based upon, traffic navigation, cost of living and favor ability to the millennials, there’s now a rumbling across Texas and beyond that’s not coming from underground but rather from the local and national retail and restaurant chains that are racing to this market. National retailers and restaurant chains are not new to Lubbock; however, the increase in interest by so many different national chains is and that’s catching the eyes and ears of many in the real estate industry across the state and beyond. When you consider the massive growth taking place in other parts of the state, including DFW, Austin and Houston, it’s not hard to figure out why people are no longer viewing Lubbock, TX as a dusty west Texas town!
Don’t look now but the quite west Texas town of Lubbock is quickly starting to look like the next area for a retail explosion that resembles the real estate boom that hit Collin County just north of Dallas in the 1980’s. The dirt that’s been known here as farm land and urban areas on the north, west and south parts of the city are heavy on the minds of local and national developers; as well as, the retailers, restaurant chains, and the Texas Department of Transportation.
HASCO Commercial has been preparing for such a market explosion for years and is excited to be in the center of what could be the hottest real estate development and construction market in Texas in 2017 and beyond!
We are excited to be expanding the HASCO team and are looking forward to more exciting growth inside and out of HASCO Commercial Construction in the coming months and years.

HASCO Commercial completes WALK-ON’S BISTREAUX & BAR on time and under budget! Grand Opening set for first week of October, 2016!
How did WALK-ON’S BISTREAUX & BAR become ESPN’s #1 Sports Bar in America? What made Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and All-Pro Quarterback Drew Brees join their team as partners in 2015?
Here’s Their Story!
Our story begins on the hardwood floors of Louisiana State University’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Brandon Landry and Jack Warner, our founders and walk-ons for the LSU basketball team, played proudly for the Tigers, driven by the team camaraderie and their true love of the game.
During their time on the team, Brandon and Jack had amazing opportunities to travel and visit the best of the best restaurants and sports bars around the country. While they were lucky enough to be living one dream of playing LSU basketball, they were also beginning to create a new dream.
In 2001, on a plane ride home from a game at the University of Tennessee, the floor plan for Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar was drawn on the back of a napkin. Brandon and Jack submitted their business plan for Walk-On’s to one of their professors for a class project. The professor gave them a C, saying their idea needed some work, which only motivated Brandon and Jack even more. After six banks denied them a loan for Walk-On’s, the seventh bank finally agreed to help turn their dream into reality. Throughout the process of opening Walk-On’s, they discovered the ultimate non-negotiable they still abide by today: never stop trying!
During their years on the bench, Brandon and Jack learned that being a walk-on was a privilege, and even though they didn’t play much, they were just as important to the team as the star players. Legendary Coach Dale Brown taught them that everyone on a TEAM has one common goal: to win! Brandon and Jack took the lessons learned from the hardwood floors and brought them to life on the floors of their restaurants.
Today, our mission is to deliver a memorable game day experience with a taste of Louisiana for guests of all ages, created by great teammates and all-American cheerleaders. Our entire Walk-On’s team works hard every day to ensure every customer has a winning experience with great food, beverages, service and atmosphere. We thank you for your support.
Cheers to you and your dream!
Tell all of your friends and come out and join HASCO Commercial Construction for some great food and sports @ WALK-ON’S BISTREAUX & BAR!
