The public grand opening for Kitchen 67 Brann's Cafe
is scheduled for August 25, and it will not only be a new addition to the Brann's family of restaurants, but a new kind of restaurant experience.
Accordng to Johnny Brann, the name of their new venture is a nod back at his grandfather's original business, John Brann's Steakhouse. "That restaurant really took off in 1967, when we introduced the sizzler," he explains. The new concept that Brann is implementing is designed to "fuel up body and mind." It is also the result of significant collaboration between Brann's and several area and national businesses.
Bob Israels helped Brann with building design. Brann also mentions Gentex, Custer Technologies, Apple and Verizon (Verizon will share an entrance between the two spaces) as other collaborators in the project. Together, these vendors have created very high-tech cafe, where customers can enjoy the food while experiencing the latest in technology, including wireless charging stations designed by Fulton Innovations.
The new cafe has already resulted in 45 new jobs with the probability of adding more for a total of 50-55 jobs.
Brann says the menu
will have many of their popular items, but will also feature many new foods with a "high-flavor" profile.
