SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - April 22, 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"), recently unveiled the latest BWW restaurant located in Sterling Heights, MI. The new restaurant is a relocation of a nearby BWW restaurant, which first opened in 1999, and was the first BWW to be opened as part of the DRH portfolio, which has now grown to 36 BWW restaurants in total. The new restaurant also marks the first BWW restaurant in the state to feature the new "Stadia" design, aimed at bringing the feel of a stadium to the dining experience. The location also offers an additional 1,000 square feet with an additional 60 seats and features an all-season patio.
Michael Ansley, President and CEO of DRH, commented, "The grand opening of the new Sterling Heights restaurant was extremely well received by the neighborhood and the first 100 customers received a coupon book valid for six free wings every week, for an entire year. We believe the high energy created by the dynamic Stadia design will quickly evolve this location into a social gathering spot and a way to better enjoy games and amplify the overall experience of dining at BWW."
