Concord History

Starting Out

1986

Concord saw its beginning in the hospitality business. The company became a franchise of ViCorp Restaurants in Denver Colorado – the parent company for Village Inn Pancake House Restaurants.    Over the years Concord operated multiple Village Inn restaurants in Nebraska and Kansas.

Development Continues

1987

Concord continued its path of developing restaurant locations, and signed on with Applebee’s International – the parent company of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar as a restaurant franchisee.  Following multiple restaurant builds, rebuilds, and franchise acquisitions, Concord built a system of 45 restaurant locations across a nine state region. The Applebee’s concept was sold to a private equity company in December of 2012.

Concord Expands to BBQ
