BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. announced the opening of its restaurant in Orland Park, Illinois. The new BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse opened today, February 27, 2023, on a free-standing pad near Orland Square Mall on South La Grange Road. 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 excited to open our first restaurant of the year in Orland Park, Illinois,” comments Greg Levin, Chief Executive Officer & President. “Our Orland Park restaurant is also our first in the state of Illinois, where we look forward to opening more restaurants as we continue our national expansion. Our 2023 new restaurant opening pipeline is in excellent shape and we remain on target to open as many as five restaurants.”
As with all of our new restaurants, BJ’s invited the local community to attend a soft opening event prior to our grand opening. Guests were treated to complimentary food and had the opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which BJ’s has a long-standing history of supporting. Additionally, all proceeds from alcohol purchases during the soft opening event are donated to the BJ’s Restaurants Foundation.
