UPDATE: 4/6 11 a.m. Hopdaddy will now be opening at 11 a.m. on April 15.
Hopdoddy Burger Bar will open its first Plano location on April 15 at 8255 Preston Road, Suite 300. It will replace Grub Burger, which Hopdoddy acquired earlier this year.
Grub will close after dinner on April 10 so that the location can be reconfigured. Hopdoddy plans to open in time for lunch five days later.
In celebration of the grand opening, the first 100 guests will receive a “golden bowl” that can be refilled for free at the Plano Hopdoddy all summer. There will also be Happy Hour $5 draft beer schooners, house margaritas and craft cocktails from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“The Plano location is the first restaurant to be converted to a Hopdoddy since we acquired the Grub Burger Bar chain in January,” Hopdoddy CEO Jeff Chandler said. “This is the first step in the brand’s exponential growth, and we look forward to welcoming our fans in Plano.”
The new Plano outpost includes a dog-friendly patio. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
