Big Daddy's to Bad Daddy's and More to Open Soon

You may have heard by now that Charlotte’s favorite burger bar, Big Daddy’s, has changed its name to Bad Daddy’s. But don’t despair burger lovers, that’s all that’s changing. The issue was a legal one (there’s a Big Daddy’s Diner in New York that owned the name) and Bad Daddy’s is the exact same restaurant under the exact same ownership, just with a few different letters.

"I think Big Daddy’s could have been named anything and it would have been successful," says Frank Scibelli, the restaurant’s owner, who considered several other versions of the name before settling on Bad Daddy’s because it was the closest to the original Big Daddy’s.

Fans of the restaurant might also like knowing that an outpost of the burger bar is opening in the Charlotte airport this October and today Scibelli signed a lease for a Huntersville location in Birkdale. Getting your Big Bad Daddy’s fix just keeps getting easier.
