Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. Announces the Grand Opening of Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern in Birch Run, Michigan


SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:BAGR) ("DRH" or the "Company"), the creator, developer and operator of the unique, full-service, ultra-casual restaurant and bar Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern® ("Bagger Dave's") and one of the largest franchisees for Buffalo Wild Wings® ("BWW"), today announced the grand opening of a Bagger Dave's in Birch Run, Michigan on Sunday, December 14, 2014, concurrent with the opening of a new co-located Buffalo Wild Wings. This opening marks the sixteenth Bagger Dave's location in the state of Michigan.

The new Bagger Dave's restaurant is located at 8827 Main Street and showcases refreshed interior and exterior design elements, including historical photos of the community as well an enclosed patio. The restaurant is located across from the Birch Run Premium Outlets, the largest outlet mall in the Midwestern United States.   

"We are excited to have completed our development plans for 2014 with two restaurant openings in Birch Run. Their proximity to the largest and most frequently visited outlet mall in the Midwest makes for an ideal location and we believe that the prominent signage at the busy Interstate 75 exit should help generate strong traffic for both brands. We are particularly pleased to be introducing Bagger Dave's high quality and differentiated menu offerings to Birch Run residents and visitors," said Michael Ansley, President and CEO.

Regular restaurant hours will be Sunday and Monday, 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Tuesday through Thursday, 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM, and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 AM to 12:00 AM.
