Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc., the creator, developer, and operator of Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern and one of the largest franchisees for Buffalo Wild Wings, announced the successful relocation of its North Port, Florida, BWW store on Sunday, May 25, 2014.
The new location has improved visibility as a standalone restaurant within the Cocoplum Shopping Center off of the US41 Tamiami Trial. For the convenience of its guests, the restaurant is near major retail locations including Publix, Ross, and Sports Authority.
"We found an ideal location in our Florida market for the new Stadia design restaurant. The stand alone property is convenient for guests, very visible and within a strong retail market area with excellent traffic," says T. Michael Ansley, president and CEO of DRH. "The Florida market has strengthened well over the last year and has proven to be a geographic hedge for us helping to balance weather and economies. Strategically, we continue to capitalize on the strong cash generation of our BWW franchises to support the growth of our Bagger Dave's concept."
Year to date, DRH has relocated two BWW and opened a new Bagger Dave's. The company plans to add another seven Bagger Dave's in Michigan and Indiana and open three more BWW by the end of 2014.
