Black Bear Diner, a fast-growing, family dining concept that offers a one-of-a-kind experience and home-style comfort food classics in a friendly, bear-themed atmosphere, today announced it has officially opened its doors in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The new company-owned restaurant marks Black Bear Diner’s presence in its 13th state.
The opening follows Black Bear Diner’s recent openings in two additional markets in California, with one diner opening in Murrieta on February 11 and another in Fresno on February 19.
“Expanding our footprint into another state is a huge step as we continue our growth across the country,” says Black Bear Diner Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Dean. “We look forward to sharing our warm hospitality and home-style comfort food with the Little Rock community, and to bring Black Bear Diner to many other communities in the near future.”
The North Little Rock diner is located at 2724 Lakewood Village Dr. and is 6,220 square feet, with a capacity of 170 guests.
Frequently recognized as one of the country’s fastest-growing franchises and a disruptor in the family-dining segment, Black Bear Diner has been acknowledged for its growth and performance, especially compared to numerous competitive brands. The company has opened six new diners since 2019.
