Black Bear Diner, the family dining concept headquartered in Redding, California, announced today that the opening of its newest restaurant in Tucson, Arizona marked a major milestone as its 100th location. The brand exceeded its original goal of opening its 100th location by 2018.
“It’s amazing to see the brand take hold in so many markets throughout the United States,” said Bruce Dean, co-founder of Black Bear Diner. “We started Black Bear Diner in Mount Shasta just over 20 years ago and never could have imagined where we would be today. We are grateful for having an experienced and strong management team that has helped us grow strategically while maintaining our high level of customer service and exceeding customer expectations.”
“2018 looks to continue our growth with our plans to open an additional 20 locations in the next 14 months,” stated Dean. Black Bear Diner is also continuing its plans to move eastward with the recent announcement of expansion into Oklahoma (late 2017, Oklahoma City) and Texas (Katy, TX, Jan. 2018). With the expansion into Texas and Oklahoma, Black Bear Diner will extend its reach into a total of 10 states.
Founded in Mt. Shasta, California in 1995, Black Bear Diner was born from a desire to bring home-style comfort food classics and personal service back to the dining experience. The family dining concept offers a vast menu anchored on hearty portions and excellent value. The franchise has grown to 100 locations in eight western states.
