(This is the first post in a series detailing my work trip to Saddle Brook, New Jersey.)
Welcome back to my blog!
As the title and intro above suggest, I’m back on the road again for Bennigan’s, this time to Saddle Brook, NJ to open the first location in the area since the company went bankrupt.
And, unlike the previous four openings I’ve been on, this is not the first time I’ve been in the area. My father’s family is from New Jersey and surrounding areas, so I have been here in the past to visit them.
I’m not exactly sure when the last time I was in New Jersey (although I will figure that out tomorrow when I have a little more time).
A few things I’ve noticed so far since I’ve been back in the Garden State:
This experience will be a new one for me as my role has changed, which I will explain tomorrow, but I will leave you with this: the restaurant is going to look awesome. The kitchen is huge compared to all the others and the bar is gigantic as well. They will have 32 different beers on tap.
The above picture is the view of the bar from the front door. It’s going to be a sweet place, and they’re anticipating some very good business when the store opens on Feb. 18. Should be a very fun three weeks.
That said, keep checking back for updates on my time here on the east coast in Saddle Brook, New Jersey!!
Until next time …
