“We continue to find excellent growth opportunities for our brand in the western states,” said Bruce Dean, co-founder of Black Bear Diner. “We have cultivated a strong and identifiable brand in the west and believe there are still plenty of growth opportunities here. Though we are strategically building our brand eastward, we remain very keen on maximizing our western opportunities.”
Recognized for serving bear-sized portions of comfort food classics in a bear-themed restaurant, Black Bear Diner is quickly establishing itself as a dominant leader in the family dining segment. It was recently ranked by Technomic, a leading research and consulting firm servicing the food and foodservice industry, as the 33rd fastest growing chain, and 9th fastest among full-service restaurants. The brand will close 2014 with 67 locations and is projected to have 100 units nationally by 2018.
