Black Bear Diner teams up with TravelCenters of America to launch new location in Tonopah, Arizona
Black Bear Diner, the renowned restaurant franchise celebrated for its generous servings of homely comfort food and distinctive cabin-themed ambiance, is celebrating the inauguration of its latest diner situated at 1010 N. 339th Avenue in Tonopah, Arizona. This strategic move is the latest collaboration between Black Bear Diner and franchise partner, TravelCenters of America (TA), marking their eighth diner together.
Nestled within the TravelCenters of America right off exit 103 in Tonopah, the new Black Bear Diner spreads across a sprawling 7,930 square feet and can comfortably host up to 158 patrons. This diner’s debut follows closely on the heels of the recently inaugurated Black Bear Diner in San Antonio, Texas in March.
Anita Adams, CEO of Black Bear Diner, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “2023 has been an outstanding year for us in terms of growth, and our ambitious expansion strategy is on track, encompassing both company-owned and franchise-operated diners. Collaborating with TravelCenters of America has been instrumental in our journey, allowing us to introduce our unique bear-themed dining experience, coupled with sumptuous comfort food and exceptional service, to a wider audience across diverse locations.”
Echoing the sentiment, Jack Hancharick, TravelCenters of America’s Vice President of Full-Service Restaurants, shared, “Augmenting our full-service dining portfolio is always thrilling. Black Bear Diner has resonated with our guests and has become a beloved brand. Our TA team in Tonopah is ecstatic to incorporate this much-loved brand into our diverse range of offerings.”
On a broader scale, this diner is the fourth Black Bear Diner establishment to grace the dining landscape this year. Projections reveal that fans can anticipate the launch of six additional locations before 2023 comes to a close.
