BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. announced the opening of its first restaurant in the Rochester market in suburban Henrietta, New York. The new BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse opened yesterday, September 4, 2023, on Jefferson Road in front of Market Square Shopping Center. The restaurant is approximately 7,500 square feet, seats approximately 250 guests and features BJ’s extensive menu, including BJ’s signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie dessert. BJ’s unique, contemporary décor provides the perfect environment for all dining occasions. Current hours of operation are from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight Friday and Saturday.
“We are thrilled to continue adding to our restaurants in New York, and with Rochester we now have four locations in the state,” comments Greg Levin, Chief Executive Officer & President. “Our Rochester restaurant is the fourth restaurant opening of the year. We remain confident in the opportunity for ongoing expansion and our next opening and last of the year is scheduled for the beginning of October in Grand Rapids, Michigan.”
As with all of our new restaurants, BJ’s opens its doors to the local community for a soft opening prior to our grand opening. All proceeds from food and alcohol purchases during the soft opening event, as well as any voluntary donations, are donated to the BJ’s Restaurants Foundation.
