bd’s Mongolian Grill opened its newest and largest restaurant on Monday, April 5, in Toledo, Ohio. The interactive, create-your-own stir-fry restaurant is located on Talmadge Road in the Franklin Park Shopping Mall. At 7,800 square feet, seating for 250 guests, and more than 120 new employees, this location is the largest bd’s in the country.

bd’s will be celebrating the new opening with the “IncrediBowl Grand Opening Giveway.” For the first 30 days of operation, when guests sign up for bd’s Club Mongo, they are automatically entered to win a free bowl of stir-fry every week for a year.

“For years, guests at other bd’s restaurants in the area have asked when a location would open in Toledo,” franchisee Tim Hobart says. “The first time we ate at a bd’s we fell in love with the concept, and finally bringing the brand to this market is an exciting step for us.”

The Toledo location will be the sixth bd’s that Hobart and his wife Ronda have opened in the past 12 years.

“Tim and Ronda are a strong and passionate team, with a contagious can-do attitude,” says Rodger Head, president and chief executive officer of bd’s Mongolian Grill. “When so many other chains in the restaurant industry are struggling, we are thrilled the Hobarts are opening in the Franklin Park Shopping Mall and are confident each guest will receive a great dining experience.”
