Roseville, CA - Fountains at Roseville is proud to announce that it is growing once again with three new leases signed in October including Irvine-based upscale eatery Yard House taking over the former Smith and Hawken building (13,000 square feet) in early Summer 2011. On the whole, Fountains at Roseville sales are up more than 14% year over year and same store sales are up over 5%.
The addition of Yard House to the collection of great restaurants in Fountains Restaurant Row is part of the company’s first venture into Northern California, along with a location at upscale lifestyle center Santana Row in San Jose in Spring 2011. ‘We are thrilled to add Yard House to our Restaurant Row. It’s a great fit for our audience with its upscale eatery atmosphere, generous happy hour and over a hundred beers on tap,’ explained Gloria Wright, center manager.
‘We’re excited about having a presence in the Sacramento Valley, especially at the Fountains at Roseville, with its terrific tenant mix and location. As a unique outdoor shopping center, it had tremendous appeal,’ said Harald Herrmann, president and CEO of Yard House Restaurants. ‘We’re looking forward to introducing our concept to the residents and visitors of the greater Sacramento region.’ Yard House at the Fountains at Roseville will span nearly 13,850 square feet (including 2,150 sq. ft. of outdoor patio) with an indoor/outdoor guest capacity of 475 plus 130 taps of beer encircling the island bar.
The restaurant’s design of warm woods, coupled with stainless steel accents and a collection of original, abstract artwork, is aesthetically pleasing. Sports fans can catch the latest game on one of the many flat screens strategically positioned throughout the restaurant, while enjoying the strains of the restaurant’s vast music library, which is played on a state-of-the-art sound system and features more than 7,000 titles of tunes spanning five decades, from the 1960s to the present.
While known for its half-yard and pints of beer, Yard House is equally popular with martini and wine aficionados. A full bar of libations is also available. Happy hour includes a variety of half-price, full portion appetizers, including a variety of individual gourmet pizzas.
Both Nation’s Restaurant News and Cheers Magazine have lauded Yard House, which first opened in Long Beach, California, in December 1996, as having the ‘Best Beer List’. The company’s long list of accolades includes a high ranking among the nation’s Top 100 Independent Grossing Restaurants by Restaurants & Institutions Magazine, as well as being recognized as a Concept of Tomorrow by Restaurant Hospitaliy, a trade magazine which also named the Yard House among the nation’s 50 fastest Growing Full Service Chains. Yard House also has locations throughout Southern California; Greater Phoenix, Waikiki Beach; Las Vegas; Kansas City; suburban Denver, Boston and Chicago; and San Antonio and Houston, Texas.
Joining Fountains at Roseville just in time for the 2010 holiday shopping season will be contemporary Italian furniture retailer, Furnitalia, and French gift boutique, Boulevard de Amelie which plan to open in early November.
