Black Bear Diner Selected as Menifee’s March Business Spotlight

The City of Menifee is thrilled to announce “Black Bear Diner” as the City’s March Business Spotlight, a program that is a part of the Economic Development Department’s B3 (Building Better Businesses) program. 

Black Bear Diner, which opened in May of 2023, is owned and operated by Amit Singh and Parth Metha. They are proud of being an integral part of the Menifee community and strive to ensure that every visit is memorable. While delicious food draws visitors to their diner, the bear-themed decor and friendly staff never fail to delight both new and regular customers. The extensive menu caters to all tastes, spanning from fluffy pancakes to juicy burgers and refreshing salads. Black Bear Diner offers something for everyone and promises that every visitor leaves satisfied. 

Black Bear Diner extended its paws to Menifee, making it the second establishment in Southwest Riverside County. Originating in Mt. Shasta, California, the diner was co-founded by Bruce Dean, Bob Manley, and Laurie Manley in 1995 and has built a nationwide presence of 156 locations in 14 states. Menifee was strategically chosen as a new site for the diner due to its flourishing population and the harmonious blend of ongoing and forthcoming developments along McCall Boulevard, fostering a promising environment for regional commerce. 

Black Bear’s dedication to Menifee goes beyond just serving delicious food. In addition to partnering with the Menifee Police Department for their first-ever Breakfast with Badges, they have also collaborated with the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce and participated in the City of Menifee’s State of the City address. By actively engaging with various community organizations and events, Black Bear continues to demonstrate their commitment to building strong relationships and making a positive impact in Menifee. 

“We are grateful for Black Bear’s commitment to excellence and for being a valued part of the growing vibrant dining scene in Menifee,” said District 1 Councilmember Bob Karwin. “It is heartwarming to see a business like Black Bear not only thrive in their endeavors, but also give back to the community that they serve.”
