Red Robin to open in May at former Bennigan's location near Briarwood Mall
Farmington Hills-based Ansara Restaurant Group will own and operate the 7,000-square-foot restaurant, the firm's 27th Red Robin franchise, the mall said in a press release.
Red Robin plans to hire about 150 workers to staff the restaurant, the chain's second in the Ann Arbor area.
Denise Murray, director of marketing and business development for Briarwood, said Red Robin would begin hiring around April 1. Job openings will be posted at RedRobin.com.
The chain, founded in 1969, replaces the Bennigan's that closed in January. Bennigan's owners said they couldn't afford Simon Property Group's rental fees, but Simon officials said they decided not to renew the lease.
