Granite City Food & Brewery Acquires Assets Of Three Additional Cadillac Ranch Restaurants For $3.3 Million

In May 2011, Granite City received a $9.0 million infusion of equity capital from Concept Development Partners (CDP) in partnership with Dallas-based private equity firm, CIC Partners, along with $10.0 million in debt financing from Fifth Third Bank. The transaction brought the Company capital, additional management and several new, experienced board members, including Mike Rawlings, former President of Pizza Hut, a Founding Partner of CIC Partners, and current Mayor of Dallas, Lou Mucci, former CFO of BJ’s Restaurants, Michael Staenberg, President of THF Realty, Fouad Bashour, a Founding Partner of CIC Partners, and Rob Doran, former Executive Vice President of McDonalds’s. Rob Doran now serves as CEO of Granite City. Since CDP’s investment, Granite City has been developing growth plans for existing restaurants as well as the construction of new restaurants, such as the recently announced Troy, Michigan location set to open in early 2012.

Granite City Food & Brewery is a modern American restaurant and brewery. Everything served at Granite City is made fresh on site using high quality ingredients, including Granite City’s award-winning signature line of craft beers. The extensive menu features moderately priced favorites served in generous portions. Our attractive price point, high service standards, and great food and beer combine for a memorable dining experience. Granite City Food & Brewery Ltd. opened its first restaurant in St. Cloud, Minnesota in 1999 and currently operates 26 Granite City restaurants and 5 Cadillac Ranch restaurants in 13 states. Additional information about Granite City Food & Brewery can be found at the Company’s website ( www.gcfb.net).
