The 82-unit company saw explosive growth in 2012, with new restaurant openings throughout Texas, as well as internationally in Dubai, El Salvador and Korea.
Bennigan's Franchising Company announced today that a brand new location opened in Clarksburg, Md. on Dec. 18, 2012. Located in the Buffington Building at 23315 Frederick Road, the new restaurant will feature the brands' recent remodel additions, including a welcoming bar and a lavish outside patio for guests to enjoy signature "Irish Hospitality."
"We are excited to bring Bennigan's into the local community," said Bette Buffington of Buffington Enterprises III L.L.C, Bennigan's Clarksburg franchisee. "The iconic, Legendary brand is a perfect match for Clarksburg, and we hope to continue to develop additional restaurants once we see the success of this first Maryland location."
Longtime residents and business owners in the community, Bette, along with her husband Dr. Joe Buffington and their son Joe Buffington II , initially built the Buffington Building to house their new Remax Realty Center. Bette founded her real estate company in 1985 and has since built it to over 90 agents in two local cities with her co-broker son, Joe II. In response to the town's request for a restaurant in the building, the Buffington's are proud to introduce Bennigan's as the first official casual dining restaurant in Clarksburg.
The new Clarksburg Bennigan's will celebrate its opening with a grand opening party on Jan. 15 from 4 p.m. to close. During the grand opening event, kids eat free all evening, guests will enjoy food and drink specials, and everyone will have the chance to win gift cards and prizes from drawings throughout the night.

The 82-unit company saw explosive growth in 2012, with new restaurant openings throughout Texas, as well as internationally in Dubai, El Salvador and Korea.
