Cheddar’s Casual Café recently hosted a grand reopening of its Bedford location. Chef Robert Pesch, Cheddar’s CMO Tom Koenigsberg and special guest Bedford Mayor Jim Griffin unveiled the remodeled restaurant and updated menu.


“Cheddar’s is proud to call Dallas-Fort Worth home and this location in Bedford was one of our first restaurants,” said Cheddar’s General Manager Todd Emery. “In fact, since 1981, Cheddar’s has been a part of the Bedford business community and we’re grateful for our many loyal customers over the years.”

“With our long history in Bedford, it’s fitting that our Bedford guests are among the first to experience Cheddar’s polished new look,” said Cheddar’s Chief Brand Officer Tom Koenigsberg. “This investment will enable us to better serve our neighbors here for years to come.”

Some of the new menu items include Asian Salad, Grilled Baja Chicken and Strawberry Cheesecake Mini. I’m looking forward to trying out these new dishes very soon!
