KISS bandmates Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are expanding their Rock & Brews restaurant brand after announcing plans to open new diners in Kansas and Oklahoma.

The rock icons opened their first Rock & Brews in Los Angeles last year, and they currently have three restaurants, including one at LAX airport’s Terminal 5, and locations in Los Cabos, Mexico, and Paia on Maui.

New Rock & Brews restaurants are in development in Arizona, New Mexico, Florida and Texas, and Stanley and Simmons have signed a franchise agreement for five new sites, with the first set to open Overland Park in Kansas in May.

The KISS stars will officially launch the new restaurant on May 29 with a luncheon for wounded warriors and war veterans.
