Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a Denver-based brand, is introducing its burgers to Chattanooga on Monday.
Located at 1924 Gunbarrel Road, Bad Daddy’s will host its official grand opening the following day at 10:30 a.m. with a ceremonial burger and ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by Bad Daddy’s CEO Boyd Hoback, Director of Operations Mike Maloney, and the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce.
“This is a huge moment for the entire Bad Daddy’s family, to break into the Tennessee market and introduce the people of Chattanooga – and all across South East Tennessee – to our insanely delicious, award-winning burgers,” said District Manager Nick Leach. “We’ve earned a distinctive reputation in the burger world for the unique culinary passion we put into our hamburgers, and we can’t wait to share this passion with the everyone in the area.
We have assembled an awesome team and we’re all looking forward to becoming an integral part of the local community.”
Prior to Monday’s opening, Chattanooga’s new Bad Daddy’s will host an invitation-only VIP dinner on Saturday during which donations will be collected for the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults. A check presentation will be made to the Partnership during Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.
