Is Minnesota Based Restaurant Famous Dave’s Changing Their Name?
There are a lot of good BBQ places out there, but one of my favorites has to be Famous Dave's. My parents used to take us there for special occasions and we'd get the feast that comes in the trash can lid. OHHHHHHH it was so good. Side note... I had my first legal drink at Famous Dave's in Colorado.
The company announced a name change the other day. According to the StarTribune, the restaurants ARE NOT changing their names, just the corporate name that appears on the stock market will be changing. Apparently Famous Dave's stocks have been identified as DAVES on the stock market since 1996. Starting September 17th the company will be identified as BBQ.
Why the sudden change? The article says that the company is looking to expand its restaurants outside of the Daves brand. The new official name of the company is BBQ Holders INC. They are looking to open different BBQ places around the country, hence the name change.
Fun fact, there are around 134 different Famous Dave's chain-units floating around the country. We have one in Rochester and quite a few others across the state. The article says that the one up in the Twin Cities has been doing some experimenting with their menu. These new items will be seen in the near future. I'm super excited to see what else the chain can come up with.
