Fast-growing casual-dining chain opens sixteenth location

Fairfax, VA — Northern Virginia based Glory Days Grill, a national restaurant company, is opening its sixteenth restaurant, which will be located in Manassas, Virginia. The company secured an in-line site in the Signal Hill Shopping Center, located at 9516 Liberia Avenue, directly across the street from the newly opened Wal-Mart. The restaurant is scheduled to open to the public in late August 2004.

Says co-founder and president of Glory Days, Inc., Jeff Newman, "We are excited to expand our popular concept of great food and good sports into Manassas. Because Glory Days Grill has a very strong market presence in Northern Virginia with a recognizable brand name, we anticipate that our Manassas eatery will be a popular attraction that will continue to add to the company's reputation of operating successful, high-volume restaurants." The location will be open seven days a week, serving lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday and dinner every day. It will feature a full bar, dining room seating for 200, patio seating for 30 and 25 televisions broadcasting the latest in sports, news and entertainment programming.

Glory Days Grill offers a wide variety of freshly prepared foods, including zesty BBQ ribs, grilled marinated chicken, pastas, fresh grilled seafood and generous portions of made-to-order salads. Guests will enjoy the authentic sports memorabilia displayed throughout the restaurant, including many items donated by local teams and schools. Its full-service bar will offer an entire complement of beer, wine, mixed drinks and non-alcoholic beverages. With its unique specialty drinks for children, including the famous shark attack, and a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere, Glory Days Grill appeals to families and people of all age groups and interests. This combination of high quality food, spirits and fun has contributed to the company's rapid growth.

The concept has been recognized for a variety of charitable contributions and fundraising efforts that benefit local communities and was a state winner and national finalist for the 2003 Restaurant Neighbor Award sponsored by the National Restaurant Association. Last year alone, the restaurant chain contributed more than $120,000 to the neighborhoods they serve through their Dining for Dollars program, youth and adult team sponsorships and other charitable efforts.
