Fast-growing restaurant chain hosts annual Vendor of the Year Awards

Fairfax, VA — Northern Virginia -based Glory Days Grill, a regionally-owned restaurant company, celebrated the efforts of three local organizations at their 2005 Vendor of the Year Awards Dinner held at The Waterford at Fair Oaks on Tuesday, February 28, 2006.

Each year, the company awards those vendors whose services have greatly contributed to the company's growth and success. This year was especially meaningful, as all three honorees have partnered with Glory Days Grill since the company's inception in 1996.

The 2005 winners were J Donegan Company, the real estate broker representing Glory Days Grill in Northern Virginia, Montgomery County and Prince George's County, for excellence in retail leasing and property development; jkd & associates, for excellence in interior design exemplified by the dynamic sports-themed décor in the restaurants; and Digitec Solutions, Inc. for outstanding technical and administrative product support. Digitec is a six-time winner. In keeping with the restaurant's sports-theme, the winning companies were awarded custom-designed baseball bats and a special display holder.

Says Bob Garner, co-founder of Glory Days Grill, "The vendors awarded at this dinner are business partners, and Glory Days Grill would not be able to maintain a consistent rate of growth and develop the infrastructure to manage that growth without them."

Operating 17 restaurants in three states, Glory Days Grill is a full-service, family-friendly sports-themed restaurant offering freshly prepared menu items and the latest in sports, news and entertainment via satellite televisions, projection screens and private speaker systems. The company will open four new locations by the end of 2006. In addition, Glory Days Grill has been recognized for a variety of charitable contributions and fundraising efforts for the local communities.
