Black Bear Diner Opens 9th Utah Restaurant

CBC Advisors Represents Tenant in the Transaction

Layton, UT (February 5, 2018)Black Bear Diner today opened its ninth Utah store at the new, Winco-anchored Fort Lane Shopping Center in Layton. The Bowler Retail Team members Steve Bowler, Executive Vice President, and Heather Bogden, Vice President at CBC Advisors represented the tenant in this deal.

“This is a great site for Black Bear Diner,” said Bowler. “The freeway exposure and location in a strong, new retail shopping center poise this to be a very successful site for the restaurant.  Black Bear Diner sits near the new I-15 interchange at Layton Parkway and brings more accommodations to the southern part of Layton.  It was a pleasure to work with Layton City to bring the community a family-friendly full serve restaurant.”

Black Bear Diner was founded in 1995 in Mount Shasta, California.  It now boasts 107 operating stores in nine states, with eight more restaurants under construction with current plans to expand into an additional four states.  For this, Black Bear Diner has been named one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in the US by Technomic.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner specializing in large portions of comfort food along with pies, brownies, and lava cake.  Each diner is decorated with mountain-lodge themed décor complete with scenic murals and carved bears too numerous to count.  Together, the food and décor, paired with their friendly service, create an experience that reflects the small-town roots of founders Bob Manley and Bruce Dean.

Black Bear Diner has three other locations under construction in Utah.  Those restaurants are located in Logan, Woods Cross, and Washington City.
