T.G.I. Friday’s held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, May 31 at its new Fifth Avenue storefront in CONSOL Energy Center.
The new restaurant is now open daily starting at 7 a.m.
T.G.I. Friday’s has 568 restaurants in the United States – but this is the first one situated in an arena or stadium.
“They’re absolutely the perfect partner to go into the arena and will truly be a leader in the space,” said Travis Williams, Chief Operating Officer of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
“Every new T.G.I. Friday’s location is one we celebrate, but we are particularly enthusiastic about serving the community of Friday’s fans in downtown Pittsburgh,” said Amie Dancu, director of marketing for T.G.I. Friday’s franchisee, The Bistro Group. “This restaurant will be a great source for Pittsburghers seeking great food in a fun environment every day of the week.”
