In 2007, Frank Scibelli and successful restaurateur Dennis Thompson teamed up to open the first Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar in Charlotte, NC. It was an immediate success, and for good reason. Our philosophy to prepare simple foods–such as the quintessential American dish, the hamburger–with culinary passion satisfied a craving among restaurant-goers like nothing had before before.
Great word of mouth, and great press and awards, quickly led Frank and Dennis to an obvious conclusion. “We need to do more of this.”
The rest, as they say, is history. A second Bad Daddy’s opened in 2007. By 2012, there were five. From there, one Bad Daddy’s followed another. Today you can find Bad Daddy’s amazing cuisine in restaurants in multiple cities and states. And the response everywhere is the same: “Wow.”
