Famous Dave’s is bringing its line-serve “Quick ‘Que” prototype to Coon Rapids, Minn.

This new restaurant prototype, which opens today, boasts a smaller footprint (3,000 square  feet vs 6,000) with the goal of a quicker, more convenient experience for guests.

“The Quick ‘Que model is a huge leap forward for the Famous Dave’s Brand,” said Jeff Crivello, BBQ Holding’s CEO. “A year after purchasing Real Urban BBQ in Chicago, we are using our new line-serve knowledge to provide our customers the same delicious, famous food they crave via a quicker, more efficient service model. This model will provide a more convenient experience for customers without compromising the quality of the food."

The new Coon Rapids Famous Dave’s is operated by the franchise partner group DTSG and owners Julie Wright-Card and John Glockner who currently operate four Famous Dave’s.

Wright-Card and Glockner share Crivello’s excitement. “Coon Rapids is such a vibrant community, and there is a huge demand for high-quality barbeque. The Quick ‘Que model is going to allow us to reach more customers while providing them with a faster, safer and more comfortable experience,” Glockner said. “We’re proud to be partnered with a brand that is always looking for opportunities to innovate, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce this new model to our fans.”
