Kelly Restaurant Group announced that it has become independent of Stockade Companies, and has reformulated all 13 of their stores with new and exciting restaurant brands for their local communities.
Kelly Restaurant Group owned and operated six Montana Mike’s franchises throughout Kansas, and have reopened them under the new name, Kansas Bar & Grill. Additionally, its seven Sirloin Stockade and Coyote Canyon franchises have been converted to The Kansas Buffet Company restaurants.
“We are taking this opportunity to become independent so that we can respond to the changing demands of our consumers and the restaurant industry and begin to offer new, healthy and exciting menu options with a focus on higher quality products” said Michael Kelly, owner of Kelly Companies, an affiliate of Kelly Restaurant Group.
Kelly Restaurant Group locations in McPherson, Newton, Colby, Emporia, Dodge City and Winfield, Kansas, are now open and operating as Kansas Bar & Grill offering fresh, new menu options.
Its locations in Ottawa, Hutchinson, Coffeyville, Arkansas City, Topeka, Salina and Stillwater, OK, are now operating as The Kansas Buffet Company, also with completely new and exciting menu items and recipes.
This announcement is just the beginning of many exciting changes to come over the next several months. Renovations that include updating store front’s, interiors and adding new furnishings are just a few of the noteworthy changes. Several locations will be offering craft beer as demand for these unique offerings increases.
For the loyal customers that have patronized these restaurants for years, they will be able to count on seeing all their favorite team members as everyone has retained their positions. If gift cards were purchased from any of these locations previously, all will be honored and can be redeemed at any of the 13 new restaurant locations. Hours and days of operation remain unchanged.
Affiliates of Kelly Companies own and operate over 100 restaurants in 22 states and include such well-known brands as Champps Kitchen + Bar, Bailey’s Bar + Grill, Fox and Hound Bar + Grill, Kings Family Restaurants, and Grady’s BBQ.
