“Our Rochester restaurant is the fourth restaurant opening of the year. We remain confident in the opportunity for ongoing expansion, and our next opening and last of the year is scheduled for the beginning of October in Grand Rapids, Michigan.”

Before its grand opening, BJ’s opened its doors to the local community for a soft opening.

It noted that all proceeds from food and alcohol purchases during the soft opening event are donated to the BJ’s Restaurants Foundation.

In July this year, BJ’s Restaurants reported a net income of $11.93m for Q2 2023, a significant increase compared to a net income of $297,000 a year ago.
