SOUTHFIELD, Mich., June 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:BAGR) ("DRH" or the "Company"), the creator, developer and operator of the unique, full-service, ultra-casual restaurant and bar Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern® ("Bagger Dave's") and one of the largest franchisees for Buffalo Wild Wings® ("BWW"), launched its second newly-designed Bagger Dave's with its distinctive interior and exterior in Woodhaven, MI on Sunday, June 1, 2014. Ideally located in close proximity to the Ford Woodhaven Stamping Plant, which employs over 1,100 people, and to the on/off ramps for I-75, the new location has a front patio with more focus on the bar, in addition to standard full-table service.

"We are excited to be introducing our newly-designed Bagger Dave's in the state of Michigan. Our new design reflects the evolution of our brand and has been well received in Indiana, where we first introduced it. We anticipate at least as much enthusiasm in our home state," stated Michael Ansley, President and CEO.

This is the second Bagger Dave's opening this year with an additional six planned for 2014. There are now 20 company-owned Bagger Dave's restaurants in Michigan and Indiana. DRH has relocated two BWWs and plans to open three units in Michigan, Indiana and Florida in 2014 to have a total of 39 by year end.
