First New Restaurant Opening Since 2006 Set for Long Island in Spring 2014

ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill has rekindled its edgy positioning in casual dining. And now, the company is focused on igniting growth – with a plan to open new restaurants throughout the country. This week, Smokey Bones announces its first new restaurant opening since 2006 – to be located on Long Island in Bay Shore, New York. Smokey Bones' 66th restaurant (all company owned and operated) is set to fire up its grill in spring 2014.

The new 8,100-square-foot restaurant will feature the "New Look" of Smokey Bones and will be its second on Long Island, with a location currently in Ronkonkoma, New York. This new restaurant is part of a major renovation at Westfield South Shore Mall, and will be located next to Macy's. With a 365 guest seating capacity, this location will feature two open-air patio areas, along with newly designed, modernized brand elements throughout the restaurant.

Chris Artinian, President & CEO of Smokey Bones, is understandably fired up about the opening. "We have worked diligently over the past several months to re-emphasize the fun and edgy environment that makes Smokey Bones such a great dining destination," said Artinian. "Our atmosphere, in conjunction with our focus on Service Excellence and Best in Food, has made Smokey Bones the 'go-to' in casual dining restaurants, as opposed to the 'me-too' within the heavily saturated category. This has enabled us to grow – both internally, through our culture, and externally, as we identify and seek out restaurant opportunities in a number of markets throughout the country."

Smokey Bones, the favorite choice for food, drinks, and fun, is a full-service bar and fire-grill restaurant that operates 65 locations in 17 states and employs nearly 4,000 people. It is owned by an affiliate of Boca Raton, Fla.-based Sun Capital Partners, whose portfolio of restaurants also includes Boston Market, Friendly's, Sweet Tomatoes, Fazoli's, Bar Louie, and other restaurant brands representing approximately 2,000 locations and over $2.0 billion in sales.
