New Burger Joint Bagger Daves Coming To Fort Wayne

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

A new burger restaurant that boasts "freshly-crafted" foods will be opening in Fort Wayne in December.

Bagger Dave's Freshly Crafted Burger Tavern plans to open its 2886 E. Dupont Road location on Sunday, December 15 at 11 a.m. Sunday's grand opening will follow an invitation only-VIP event on Friday and a friends and family event on Saturday.

The restaurant promises a warm atmosphere, hand-crafted beef, turkey or black bean burgers, never-frozen ingredients, artisan buns, premium toppings, and a bar with local bottle and draft beers and wine. The menu will also feature mac 'n cheese, fresh-cut fries, sweet potato chips, salads and hand-dipped milkshakes.

Bagger Dave's expects to hire about 80 local employees. "The Fort Wayne location is our final opening of 2013 and I think we have saved the best for last," said Michael Ansley, president and CEO of Diversified Restaurant Holdings, which operates Bagger Dave's. "We are looking forward to bringing our fresh ingredients, locally-inspired decor and winning customer service to the people of this great city." About Bagger Dave's Headquartered in Southfield, Michigan, Bagger Dave's Freshly-Crafted Burger Tavern often gets accused of getting "fresh" with its customers, and rightfully so. The company's menu features hand-crafted never frozen burgers, delivered daily. Burgers are made of 100 percent USDA beef blend with cuts of prime rib and no fillers or naturally raised, always fresh, Midwestern ground turkey. Burgers can be accented with more than 30 toppings from which to choose, fresh-cut fries, made from Bagger Dave's own brand of potatoes, hand-dipped milkshakes and a selection of local, seasonal craft beer and wine.

Each restaurant quickly becomes a neighborhood gathering spot, showcasing historical photos of the city in which it resides and a nostalgic electric train that runs above the dining room and bar areas. The company has 18 restaurants across Michigan, Indiana and Missouri. For more information, visit About Diversified Restaurant Holdings Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc.
