Bob wanted to be successful in the industry. A plan was made to provide a casual dining restaurant featuring outstanding food and burgers.

In 1982, Bob's Burgers & Brew was founded, featuring a simple menu of gourmet burgers and other favorites from previous restaurants, including a lounge for adult dining. The new restaurant caught on quickly.
