CraftWorks Acquires Logan’s Roadhouse

CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, owner of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, has acquired the 204-unit Logan’s Roadhouse.

The new CraftWorks Holdings will have a hand in full-service dining, craft beer, and restaurant-brewery industries through its portfolio of Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom, Rock Bottom Restaurants and Breweries, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurants, and Logan’s.
