Granite City Food & Brewery, which operates a restaurant in suburban Toledo and sells its beer there, has announced it's opening a new location in suburban Detroit early next year. It's the first opening in two years for the St. Louis Park, Minn.-based chain. The Troy, Mich., location is the 27th site for the company. "We could not be happier to put Granite City back in a growth mode and Troy is the perfect place to begin that growth," CEO Rob Doran said in a statement. Granite City also has announced plans to expand four locations in Minnesota and Iowa. To read the stories in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, click here and here.
