Black Bear Diner Expands into Southern California
Black Bear Diner, a fast growth, award-winning family dining concept, announced today the opening of its 63rd restaurant, located in Buena Park, California. The opening of the Buena Park location marks the third Black Bear Diner restaurant in the greater Los Angeles area and marks a strategic expansion into Southern California. The Buena Park location opens June 9 and is located at 7005 Knott Ave.
“We are thrilled to add another Southern California location to our franchise family,” says Bruce Dean, co-founder of Black Bear Diner. “Even with limited restaurants in Southern California, we have experienced tremendous success. This opportunity made sense for our brand and for our strategic growth plans.”
Recognized for serving bear-sized portions of comfort food classics in a bear-themed restaurant, the chain is quickly establishing itself 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 ninth-fastest among full-service restaurants.
The brand is spread across eight western states and is projected to have 100 units nationally by 2018.
