Our first restaurant, the Bagel Beanery originated in May of 1995 in Grand Rapids at the corner of Michigan and College. The Bagel Beanery offers West Michigan’s best bagels, gourmet coffee, catering, and delicious deli sandwiches. We have continually grown as opportunities have arisen.
In 1996 we opened the Breton Road Bagel Beanery, and in 1998 we opened the Clyde Park Bagel Beanery. In February of 2001 we purchased the two Sundance Grill restaurants, which also originated here in Grand Rapids in 1985.
The Sundance Grill, which is renowned for its generous breakfast and lunch menu items, has developed a strong following for its South Western dishes and is open in the evening with Grand Rapids’ only Margarita Bar.
In October of 2001 we purchased one of West Michigan’s best restaurants, The Beltline Bar & Mexican Café, which had been in operation for over fifty years. The Beltline Bar was made famous for originating and introducing West Michigan to the Wet Burrito.
In 2002, we acquired Klein’s Deli and Bagel Factory in Kalamazoo, it has since been converted into a Bagel Beanery.
In 2003 we purchased the two Omelette Shoppe & Bakery’s in Traverse City Michigan, the first of which opened in 1975. The Omelette Shoppe is famous for the “world’s greatest omelette’s", but their loyal followers may first boast about their homemade pecan rolls and cinnamon swirl pastries, which are baked fresh on site everyday. The Omelette Shoppe and Bakery is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch with two locations in Traverse City, MI and two locations in Grand Rapids, MI to serve you.
Acquired by Restaurant Partners Inc., in 2006, Boone's Prime Time Pub has been a long time favorite eatery for locals and vacationers in Suttons Bay, MI. From its quintessential stone and log cabin look to the selections of hand-cut steaks, fresh fish, handmade burgers & its famous jumbo onion rings, the Prime Time Pub says, "relax, you're up north."
The Bear Lake Tavern, or simply the B.L.T., is a historic Michigan landmark that has provided good times and great food to the residents and visitors of North Muskegon for the last 80 years. In keeping with their long standing traditions, the food is simple, fresh and homemade with locally purchased products where ever possible. Located on the Bear Lake channel, this quintessential family-friendly, cozy cottage restaurant is mostly known for serving up fresh lake perch, fresh ground burgers and homemade wet burritos as well as a plethora of other homey comfort foods...now to include the recently added One Pound BLT...yes, one full pound of crisp bacon sandwiched between thick cut grilled Italian bread with lettuce, tomato and mayo.
