Glory Days® to Open New Restaurant in Falls Church, Virginia at Barcroft Plaza Shopping Center

Gaithersburg, MD — October 4, 2016 — Glory Days Grill, a sports-themed family restaurant operating 27 corporate and franchised restaurants in 4 states, will open a new restaurant adjacent to Lake Barcroft in Falls Church, VA. This will be the company’s seventh location in Fairfax County and will be located at Barcroft Plaza Shopping Center at the intersection of Columbia Pike and Lincolnia Road. Glory Days Grill will anchor the east end of the center with an anticipated opening during the summer of 2017.

"We are thrilled to welcome Glory Days Grill to the Lake Barcroft neighborhood. I am sure our community will enjoy their sports themed and family-oriented restaurant, and neighbors will also benefit from Glory Days' commitment and deep ties to our local schools,” said Kari Glinski, Director of Asset Management at Federal Realty. “Glory Days Grill further rounds out Barcroft Plaza Shopping Center’s already robust lineup of family-driven convenience retail including Harris Teeter, Chico's Natural Pet Market, Subway, and Starbucks to name a few,” Glinski added. 

The new Falls Church location will feature over 7,000 square feet of dining, bar, and private banquet seating, with an abundance of TVs broadcasting the latest sports, news and entertainment programming. Guests will enjoy a comfortable, family-friendly yet modern atmosphere utilizing warm colors and tones. Like all Glory Days Grill restaurants, the Falls Church location will focus on product excellence with the highest standards in food quality and safety, a love of sports, and a dedication to the community. The Falls Church restaurant will provide fundraising programs for schools and teams, and managers will accept applications for team sponsorships starting in the fall of 2017. Last year, Glory Days Grill restaurants donated over $480,000 to schools and teams through sponsorships, fundraising and other community programs.
