New Black Bear Diner Location to Open in Rancho Cucamonga

Residents of Rancho Cucamonga will soon have a new restaurant to enjoy with their families. Black Bear Diner, a national chain that prides itself on stellar service, will be opening a new location in Rancho Cucamonga in the future. The planned site of the restaurant is at 10910 E. Foothill Boulevard, at the location of the old HomeTown Buffet. That restaurant closed in 2017 and the space has been vacant ever since.

In addition to the Rancho Cucamonga location, Black Bear Diner will also be opening a new restaurant in nearby Murrieta where Chowsome Buffet used to be.

About Black Bear Diner

Black Bear Diner is a family restaurant with a friendly environment and a fun, bear-related theme. Their website says that they treat diners and employees as if they were family, and it shows in their commitment to excellent service and philanthropy.

One of the things that makes Black Bear Diner stand out from other chain restaurants is the company’s commitment to charitable giving. They give to charities on a national and international level, but they also get involved in every community where they have a restaurant through sponsorships and fundraising events.

That means that in addition to having a fun new place to enjoy a meal, residents of Rancho Cucamonga can look for the Black Bear Diner to be involved in the community in meaningful and lasting ways. Some of the company’s ongoing philanthropic efforts include:

  • The Global Aldea Coffee Cooperative, which seeks out humanitarian projects in Nicaragua
  • The Backpack Project, which provides new backpacks and school supplies to children in need

They also get involved on a local level to ensure that each location is an integral and vital part of the community that surrounds it.
