In 1960 John Brann Sr. opened the first John Brann’s Steakhouse in Grand Rapids Michigan in the heart of the West Side, where Michigan’s Original Sizzle got its start! John Sr. wanted to make sure that families could go out to eat and get a great meal at a great price. Grand Rapids ate this concept up! Soon, John Brann’s Steakhouse was selling an average of 800 Sizzling Steak Dinners on Saturday nights!
