April 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // Gaithersburg, MD - Glory Days Grill, a sports-themed family restaurant operating 26 corporate and franchised restaurants in 4 states, will open a new restaurant at 3141 Duke St in the Alexandria Commons Shopping Center. This will be the company’s 15th location in Virginia and the first to be located in the city of Alexandria. Glory Days Grill will anchor the east end of the center with an anticipated opening in either late 2017 or early 2018.
"We are excited to open Glory Days Grill in the west end of Alexandria. I know the local community will enjoy our sports themed and family-friendly restaurant. Our neighbors will also benefit from Glory Days' commitment and deep ties to local schools,” said Jeff Newman, President and Co-Founder. “Some of the main reasons we chose Alexandria Commons Shopping Center are the abundance of free parking, the opportunity to include a 600 square foot banquet room, the designation of ‘15 minute only’ parking to accommodate carry out/to go customers, and a large covered patio that will extend the entire front of the restaurant,” said Newman.
The new Alexandria Commons location will feature over 6,700 square feet of dining, bar, and private banquet seating, with an abundance of TVs broadcasting the latest sports, news and entertainment programming. Guests will enjoy a comfortable, family-friendly yet modern atmosphere utilizing warm colors and tones. Like all Glory Days Grill restaurants, the Alexandria Commons location will focus on product excellence with the highest standards in food quality and safety, a love of sports, and a dedication to the community. The Alexandria Commons restaurant will provide fundraising programs for schools and teams, and managers will accept applications for team sponsorships starting in the fall of 2017. Glory Days Grill restaurants donate over $450,000 annually to schools and teams through sponsorships, fundraising and other community programs. The company recently announced the opening of a restaurant this fall at Barcroft Plaza in Fairfax County proceeded by a franchised location in Apex, NC opening this summer.
