Black Bear Diner Opens 62nd Restaurant in Visalia, California
“We are thrilled to add another Central Valley location to our franchise family,” said Bruce Dean, co-founder of Black Bear Diner. “We have experienced tremendous success in California’s Central Valley corridor and this opportunity made sense for our brand and for our strategic growth plans.”
Black Bear Diner is a 62-unit regional chain spread across eight western states. The brand is steadily growing and is projected to have 100 units by 2018. The award-wining, family dining franchise offers bear-sized portions at an excellent value, and features a unique bear-inspired theme and experience. The log cabin and bear-inspired décor creates a warmth and coziness that reminds guests of time when life was a little more simple, and service and quality were the cornerstone of business. All Black Bear Diners showcase custom-carved wood bear sculptures and a bear-inspired mural.
