COLUMBUS — The Humane Society of the United States announced that it will become a Bravo Brio Restaurant Group [NASDAQ: BBRG (proposed)] stockholder once shares of the company, which recently filed for IPO, become available.

Goal

The HSUS will use its shareholder position to encourage the Columbus, Ohio-based company to make the same type of animal welfare improvements that dozens of other restaurant chains have made, such as moving toward cage-free eggs and pork from suppliers that don’t use gestation crates to confine pregnant sows.

BBRG, with annual sales of more than $300 million, operates 80 Bravo! Cucina Italiana and Brio Tuscan Grille restaurants nationwide.
