Detroit Based Restaurant Now Serving Comforts of Home at Spring Training in Lakeland

January 26, 2011

Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2007

bd’s Mongolian Grill today announced its sponsorship of the 2007 Detroit Tigers Spring Training at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland, FL. The Tigers and its fans have wintered in Lakeland since 1932. That home-away-from-home for Michigan natives became the home of the first Florida bd’s Mongolian Grill location in May 2006 when bd’s opened at Lakeside Village Shopping Center. Lakeside Village is located at the North East corner of Harden Boulevard and Polk Parkway.

Restaurant industry veterans Mike Schmidt and Dave Ulgenalp have plans to open 14 bd’s Mongolian Grills in Central Florida. Both franchisees grew up in Detroit and now live in Tampa Bay with their families.

“I have been a lifelong Tiger’s fan. It is a thrill to be a sponsor of what is going to be the beginning of another memorable season for the Tigers,” said Ulgenalp.

The stir-fry chain is a fan favorite in Michigan, where it is headquartered. bd’s Mongolian Grill is a high-energy, interactive restaurant where guests enter a market area and choose from a large variety of fresh meats, seafood, vegetables and flavorful sauces. Each creation is then grilled to perfection on bd’s signature 6-foot diameter, 600-degree grill. At bd’s Mongolian Grill, you rule your dining experience.

Look for bd’s “Mongo Man” roaming the concourse of Joker Marchant stadium through out the season, which begins February 27th and runs through March 31st. bd’s Mongolian Grill will be the title sponsor for every Wednesday night game.

In addition to Michigan visitors enjoying one of their favorite “local” restaurants while in Lakeland, everyone at the game will have a chance to win bd’s prizes and receive bd’s coupons. After the game, fans can catch the highlights on one of several flat screen TVs in bd’s sports viewing bar. The restaurant has seating for 220 including a patio area and offers free Wi-Fi.
