A quick side story: the jukeboxes are famous in Black Bear due to their history.
Some franchisees requested more contemporary options and Black Bear adjusted.
As Dean mentioned, Black Bear’s “Wow factor” wasn’t carrying over to the extent the brand hoped.
Black Bear added Pasta Primavera to its Fit and Focused menu, and a roasted half chicken.
Another thing Black Bear did to give dinner a signature personality was create exclusive experiences.
To accomplish these culinary changes, Black Bear had to adjust preparation.
Black Bear serves choice New York strip and ribeye steaks at price points of $15-$17 for 10-ounce options.
