Bennigan's debuts new unit in Panama City

PLANO Texas Bennigan's Grill & Tavern, the 310-unit division of Metromedia Restaurant Group here, has opened a second unit in Panama, debuting a new store on the causeway to the Panama Canal.

This second unit for the franchise group Extreme Planet becomes the 52nd international location for Bennigan's. Extreme Planet also operates a location in downtown Panama City.

"This is an ideal location for Bennigan's to increase its presence in the community," said Eric Taylor, senior vice president of worldwide franchise operations for Bennigan's. "We've had tremendous success with our first Panama City restaurant and established a great rapport in the area. Opening an additional location on the causeway is a perfect way to expand the Bennigan's brand to one of the busiest traffic points in the entire world."
