Highly awarded, sports-themed American grill and bar, Glory Days Grill, announced an agreement with Franchise Freeway to be Glory Days Grill’s outside franchise sales broker tasked with identifying potential franchisees who are qualified to develop, open and operate franchised Glory Days Grill restaurants located in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the country. Glory Days Grill currently operates 20 corporate restaurants in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia and 11 franchised restaurants operating in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia. Target markets for franchise expansion include Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey,

North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Glory Days Grill has attracted a high-caliber multi-unit franchisee to develop a large franchise territory.

Bob Basham, co-founder of Outback Steakhouse, is a co-owner of a Glory Days Grill development area. He and his partners have opened 8 Glory Days Grill restaurants in Florida in the Greater Tampa,

St. Petersburg, Lakeland and Sarasota areas with plans to open additional franchised restaurants throughout the state including two additional restaurants this year.

“Glory Days Grill has been a household name in the Baltimore-Washington corridor and Northern Virginia for almost 25 years. The founders, Richard Danker, Robert Garner, and Jeffrey Newman, are hands-on in the day-to-day business operations. They have surrounded themselves with a world-class management and training team to support the next phase of franchise expansion as well as the additional corporate restaurants that will open this year,” said Mike Halpern, CEO of Franchise Freeway.

Franchise Freeway will be focused on expanding Glory Days Grill with seasoned casual dining operators who can uphold Glory Days Grill’s three pillars of success: serving great food, espousing a love of sports, and an ongoing commitment to the communities they serve.
