Recovery Sports Grill Celebrates 10 Years

Recovery Sports Grill will celebrate its 10th anniversary from Jun. 15 through Jul. 15 at all 13 locations with a “throwback” menu and an exclusive giveaway for all existing and registered Hall of Fame loyalty members. The anniversary celebration will kick off with an event at the original restaurant—Recovery Room Sports Grill Albany—on Thursday, Jun. 15 from 3-7 pm.

The event’s “throwback Thursday” theme will feature original menu items, old-school uniforms, and giveaways, and will recognize four individual associates who have been with the brand since its inception. In addition, 20-percent of the days sales at the Albany location will benefit Make a Wish and will be donated on behalf of the nurses at Albany Medical Center.

“We’re excited to be celebrating ten years of the Recovery Sports Grill brand,” said Steve Obermayer, President of BBL Hospitality. “It’s thanks to the support of Albany Medical Center and the Capital Region for the brand’s initial success, allowing us to bring the concept to an additional 12 towns across four states. We look forward to celebrating with those near and dear to Recovery Sports Grill brand and look forward to many more years of success, community, and great food!”

Founded by Don Led Duke, Recovery Sports Grill is more than just a sports grill—it’s a family and fan friendly restaurant with great food and drink, a casual atmosphere, and a place to celebrate sports.

Recovery Sports Grill, managed by BBL Hospitality, started as the Recovery Room Sports Grill on Jun. 13, 2007, a single location across from Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York. The name came from the restaurants proximity to the hospital, with the idea being that Recovery Room would serve as a getaway for those who were at the hospital during trying times, as well as a spot for local sports buffs.

Today, there are 13 restaurants in five states, with a 14th location in the works. Don’s vision of a family-oriented restaurant has not been lost as the company moves forward in its expansion.
