Black Bear Diner, the award-winning family dining concept with a heavy footprint in the western Unites States, closed out 2015 with robust growth and new restaurant openings. The concept has experienced increased same-store-sales over the last 19 quarters and opened up eight new locations this year; four restaurants were opened up in Q4 alone. The 74-unit concept is on pace to open up 100 locations by 2018.
“The brand is resonating in new and existing markets and we are comfortable with letting the brand evolve slowly and steadily,” said Doug Branigan, vice president of franchising for Black Bear Diner.
