Good Times Restaurants Inc. announced that Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a chef-driven, full-service restaurant that uses a mix of artisanal ingredients and made-from-scratch sauces and dressings to create its unique burgers, is opening a new location in Colorado Springs. The restaurant, which is set to open its doors on April 4, will be located in the Promenade Shops at Briargate at 1765 Briargate Parkway.
The company also says that its most recent Bad Daddy’s restaurants opened are exceeding sales expectations and anticipates that the Briargate restaurant will also have high sales volume based on the dynamics of the site and prior success of the shopping center. Boyd Hoback, president and CEO says, “This is our eighth Bad Daddy’s along the front range of Colorado and we’re thrilled to be entering the Colorado Springs market with a restaurant at the Shops at Briargate, which is a proven hub of upscale retail and restaurant activity. Our restaurants in the Denver area and Longmont that are part of similar retail centers are performing exceptionally well.”
With seven other established restaurants in Colorado, the most recent Bad Daddy’s will be the first location south of the Denver metro area and will provide guests in Colorado Springs a dining experience unlike any other within the popular shopping community. The Promenade Shops at Briargate location will feature fan favorite menu items including its popular gourmet burgers, such as the Bacon Cheeseburger on Steroids and the Bad Ass Burger, as well as chopped salads, specialty sides and appetizers. Additionally, the restaurant offers a full gluten-free menu and regional chef specials that incorporate Colorado flavors and ingredients.
Along with the restaurant’s core menu items, guests can expect to see new burgers, sides, salads and shake specials created by Executive Chef Tim Kast each month. The restaurant will continue to place its focus on simple, high-quality ingredients executed at a high level. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar doesn’t just stop at burgers, the restaurant’s delicious starters, like their famous Fried Pickles and Back Yard Chicken Nachos, are huge guest favorites, along with the menu of handspun milkshakes. For the health-conscious crowd, the gourmet burger bar offers Giant Chopped Salads tossed to order with fresh ingredients and homemade dressings, as well as a Create Your Own salad option. The Colorado Springs location will also offer craft beers from local craft microbreweries.
