Ursine-themed family dining restaurant Black Bear Diner has announced 12 new locations to be sited in California, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.
Black Bear Diner in California has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement to open six restaurants over the next six years, while an area development agreement will establish the chain in Missouri. The first location will open in St Louis, with three slated to open in the next three years. Two outlets will open in Oklahoma, in Tulsa and Quail Springs. A company-owned outlet will operate in Humble, Texas.
Black Bear Diner Co-Founder and CEO Bruce Dean said, “Our entrances into Oklahoma and Texas couldn’t have been more successful, and we are so grateful for the warm welcomes we have received in both states. We love bringing our home-styled comfort classics to new and regular guests alike, and more importantly, becoming a true partner to our local communities. We look forward to bringing the Black Bear Diner style of hospitality and food to more guests as we continue to execute our growth plan.”
