BJ’s Restaurants Opens in Youngstown, Ohio

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ:BJRI) today announced the opening of its restaurant in Youngstown, Ohio.  The new BJ’s Restaurant opened on Monday, April 24, 2017, on an out parcel of the Southern Park Mall at 7327 Market Street.  The restaurant is approximately 7,500 square feet, seats approximately 230 guests and features BJ’s extensive menu, including BJ’s signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie® dessert. BJ’s unique, contemporary décor provides the perfect environment for all dining occasions.  Hours of operation are from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight Sunday through Thursday, and 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

“We are excited to open our 11th restaurant in the state of Ohio,” commented Greg Trojan, President and CEO. “The Youngstown BJ’s is our fifth restaurant in northeast Ohio and joins our existing Canton, Akron, Mentor and North Olmsted restaurants.  To date, we have opened five restaurants in 2017 and are looking forward to our next two openings in Bloomington, Indiana and Fredericksburg, Virginia, both of which will open in June.”   

As with all of our new restaurant openings, BJ’s invited members of the Youngstown community to attend a soft opening event prior to our grand opening.  As our team members put the final touches on the restaurant, invited guests were treated to complimentary food and had the opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (“CFF”), a very important charity to BJ’s.  Additionally, BJ’s donated the proceeds of all alcohol purchases during the soft opening event to BJ’s Restaurants Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports charities that are important to our team members around the country.
