Ground Round Grill & Bar in Brookfield, will remain open during major renovations underway at the adjoining Midway Inn & Suites Hotel on South Moorland Road.
The Ground Round opening in 2015 included a significant upgrade of the entire restaurant facility, and return of a familiar and beloved brand and menu. "We’re proud to have brought Ground Round back to the Milwaukee area and appreciate all the support from our Ground Round fans, especially during the hotel renovations." states Azeem Virani, local franchisee owner. “We’re excited for these hotel property improvements being planned, and we want our restaurant guests to know we will be open as usual throughout the construction period and until the hotel is re-opened." says Virani.
The hotel is being upgraded to a Best Western Premier, the highest tier hotel in the Best Western franchise. Dhillon Hotels Group from Dublin, Calif., recently purchased the 126-room hotel at 1025 S. Moorland Road. The guest rooms will all be temporarily closed, but the office tower, conference rooms and the Ground Round Grill & Bar in the hotel complex will all remain open during the work. Raj Dhillon, President of Dhillon Hotels states, “This is an upscale property to cater to the business clientele. We’re going to face-lift the property, including all brand new rooms." Dhillon, who has four other properties and two under construction, said he was drawn to Brookfield’s strong business climate and demand generators after evaluating properties in Kenosha, Racine and Oshkosh.
The Brookfield Ground Round Grill & Bar employs about 40 full time and part time employees. The hotel is planning on hiring approximately 40 more employees when it re-opens later this summer.
Brookfield is one of five Ground Round locations in Wisconsin, with others located in Neenah, Onalaska, Oshkosh and Tomah.
