October 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // Attleboro, MA - Arooga’s and Mohegan Holding Company, LLC, who announced a Multi-Unit franchise agreement in May of 2014 to bring 15 Arooga’s Grille House and Sports Bar restaurants to New England, are opening its third location in Attleboro, Massachusetts on October 24th. A business diversification entity of the Mohegan Tribe, Mohegan Holding Company’s first Arooga’s opened nearly two years ago adjacent to the world-renowned Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, and its second a year ago in Warwick, Rhode Island. Both have been area favorites ever since.
The Attleboro location will have a view of every game from every seat, outdoor dining, a huge menu featuring cooked to order items made with high quality ingredients including their famous no antibiotic ever Wagyu burgers, scratch made appetizers, and award winging wings, handcrafted cocktails made with real fruit juices and premium spirits, and 48 beers on draft including national and local craft favorites. The opening 48 draft line-up will feature awesome New Belgium special beer, Dogfish Head Vanilla Oak Aged World Wide Stout and 120 Minute IPA, Long Trail Space Juice, Lagunitas Born Yesterday and WTF, Troegs Scratch 290 Apple Farmhouse Ale and Scratch 293 Mango Double IPA, and Stone Fruitalica and W00t Stout, plus local favorites from Skyroc, Wormtown, and more. Like all Arooga’s, this location will be Green Certified by the Green Restaurant Association, as well as Gluten Free certified by Beyond Celiac. Located at 228 Washington Street, the restaurant expects to add 75 - 100 jobs to the region.
As part of the grand opening celebration, the first 100 people to register at Arooga’s on the opening day - October 24th - will receive free wings for a year! For complete rules, visit http://aroogas.com/Route-1-Attleboro.
