Diversified Restaurant Holdings Opens Bagger Dave's In Traverse City, Michigan

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Sept. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:BAGR) ("DRH" or the "Company"), the creator, developer, and operator of the unique, full-service, ultra-casual restaurant and bar Bagger Dave's Freshly-Crafted Burger Tavern ® ("Bagger Dave's") and one of the largest franchisees for Buffalo Wild Wings ® ("BWW"), today announced it opened its newest Bagger Dave's in Traverse City, Michigan on Sunday, September 22, 2013.

"Traverse City is a popular year-round vacation destination market which has been growing in events and activities," stated Michael Ansley, President and CEO. "This restaurant is in an attractive location at the Grand Traverse Mall and complements the successful BWW restaurant we already operate at the Mall. We believe there is more room for growth in Michigan and, with this new location, there are now twelve Bagger Dave's operating in the state, with one additional location under development that is planned to open this year."

Mr. Ansley added, "In addition to our Michigan openings, we are continuing our brand expansion in Indiana and have three locations set to debut in that state this year, adding to our two existing locations. In total, we expect to have 18 corporate-owned Bagger Dave's operating by the end of 2013."
