First Black Bear Diner To Come To Houston Will Be Located In Katy, Texas
Award-Winning family dining concept Black Bear Diner announces its expansion of the brand in Texas, beginning with a 5,400-square-foot restaurant in The Shoppes at Parkwest located at 24600 Katy Freeway.
The Coming Soon to Katy, Texas Black Bear Diner is a restaurant chain in the western United States which serves homestyle and "old-fashioned" comfort foods. The first restaurant was opened in Mount Shasta, California in 1995, founded by Bob and Laurie Manley with help from Bruce Dean. The company is based in Redding, California. It now claims 94 locations in eight states.
Black Bear decor has a rustic motif with "over-the-top bear paraphernalia". Every restaurant is decorated with a 12-foot-tall (3.7 m) black bear carving by artist Ray Schulz. Additional murals and artwork are created for each restaurant by Steve and Gary Fitzgerald and Colleen Mitchell-Veyna. The menu format mimics an old newspaper titled: The Black Bear Gazette with articles on the front page. It offers family meals such as breakfast, burgers, salads, and shakes. Baked goods prepared on site are offered, and some locations offer alcohol sales.
