Cranbrook will be getting a little taste of Don Cherry, with plans for a new Don Cherry's Sports Grill to open in October.

It will be located in the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort, and will become the most westerly location in the Don Cherry's Sports Grill system.

"We are delighted to partner with Don Cherry's Sports Grill Inc.," said Joseph Huber, CEO of Huber Developments Ltd. which owns the resort in Cranbrook. It is operated by Prestige Hotels & Resort.

Huber said they were looking for a concept that would complement the resort, as well as a business group that shared similar values.

"Adding Don Cherry's Sports Grill to our facility will enhance our guest experience for resort customers, and provide our local community with a great new venue to enjoy fun, food and sports," he said.

Don Cherry's Sport Grill is Canadian owned and based out of Parry Sound, Ontario.

In 1985, Cherry started a chain of themed restaurants called Don Cherry's Grapevine along with family and a partner. The chain grew until 1995 when they turned from franchising to licensing.

In 2002, Chris and Darrel Painter purchased a license to operate a Don Cherry's Sports Grill in Parry Sound. Within five years they purchased the the concept as a whole and have been expanding. They focus on converting space in hotels and inns. The Painters are excited to bring the concept to Cranbrook.

"Most folks like to slide by our places to enjoy the game with a frosty beverage, but believe us; you don't need a special occasion or a sports event to visit our family friendly environment and enjoy our great food," they said. "We are very excited to work with Prestige Hotels & Resorts and look forward to the grand opening of this new location."

The Cranbrook location is undergoing renovations and will include a sports-oriented atmosphere that will feature national and local sports memorabilia.
