Bennigan's has returned to its roots established 36 years ago, "bleeding green" with a determination to provide a Legendary experience to every guest, every meal, every day. The 82-unit company saw explosive growth in 2012, with new restaurant openings throughout Texas, as well as internationally in Dubai, El Salvador and Korea. Bennigan's has agreements to develop over 30 new restaurants in 2013 in New Jersey, Maryland, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Minnesota, Florida, Tennessee and Michigan, and international openings slated for Mexico, Cyprus and Korea. The company currently has 34 domestic and 48 international locations.
New and existing Bennigan's franchisees are benefitting from the chain's Legendary comeback, which began in May 2011 when Mangiamele joined the company and launched a mission to bring memorable dining experiences to every guest, every meal, every day. The resulting operational and service improvements increased same-store sales at the prototype locations by double digits and introduced a new generation of Bennigan's that speaks to the brand's history and pays respect to its heritage. As same store sales continue to increase and domestic and international growth rockets into new markets, Bennigan's is debuting a new menu and improved prototype that will continue to rekindle the emotional connection to this great brand into the New Year and beyond.
Bennigan's is a high-energy neighborhood restaurant and tavern that is redefining casual dining. With chef-driven food, innovative drinks and warm, friendly Irish Hospitality, this Legendary brand delivers memorable dining experiences to every guest, every meal, every day. Every member of the team "bleeds green," and the company's revolutionary comeback has introduced a new generation of Bennigan's that speaks to the brand's history and pays respect to its heritage. An ongoing focus on modern, flexible prototypes, innovative menus and other sales generating initiatives has resulted in explosive growth both domestically and internationally.
