    American Kitchen will transition to M2 over the next few months.

    Bay City MI— 2/11/2020 Downtown Restaurant Investments is pleased to announce M2, Bay City’s New BBQ Quick Service Restaurant.  This move builds on the great success of Molasses Smokehouse in Midland that opened in the Summer of 2019.  M2 will offer many of the same menu items as Molasses Smokehouse for Bay City locals and visitors to enjoy.  The restaurant will feature a quick service model using counter service so the food can be enjoyed on premise, taken-out or delivered. 

    DRI plans to make M2’s operation it’s regional training center and will serve as the headquarters for all training and culinary development in the Great Lakes Bay Region. DRI is seeking to partner with other local entities in addition to State and National organizations to provide opportunities for individuals looking to work in the restaurant industry. More information on these programs will be announced in the next few weeks.

    All employees affected by the re-brand will be given first consideration for jobs at the new restaurant.   
    Dave Dittenber, CEO of DRI commented that “the M2 rebrand will allow us to venture in a new culinary direction while continuing to evolve for our customers and our team.  Our people will benefit from having the local hospitality programs involved in our facility, as will the students.”

    “The response to the Molasses Smokehouse has been amazing in Midland, we want to offer the same great taste and quality product to the people in Bay City.” declares Steve Seige, Pit Master at DRI
    The planned re-opening date is May 4th, 2020.
