Featured Sign - Bad Daddy's Burger Bar

8th of June 2015 |   BSC Signs Team

BSC Signs has created a custom neon sign for Bad Daddy's Burger Bar.


If you're a fan of Bad Daddy's Burger Bar, you may have visited their new location in Aurora at the Southlands mall. The restaurant is located beside the AMC Southlands 16 Theatres, and its main exterior sign was custom designed, built, and installed by BSC Signs, with assistance from Seth Totten of Acme Neon Signs.

This is the third location for Bad Daddy's in Metro Denver. Their other locations are in Northglenn and Cherry Creek. They also have restaurants in Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Bad Daddy's describes the restaurant as a "chef driven burger joint that uses a mix of local and artisanal ingredients to make the most amazing burger you’ve ever had." In addition to burgers, they also serve specialty sandwiches, unique salads, wings, nachos, chili, and shakes. And they also serve a lineup of Colorado craft beers, "fresh squeezed" cocktails, and wine. 

When planning their signage, Bad Daddy's wanted something bold and highly visible, especially at night. Their website describes the Bad Daddy's experience: "The look is modern diner meets a cool neighborhood bar."

And that's where BSC's experience with neon comes in.

Working with the design team at BSC Signs, a custom neon sign was decided on. As you can see in the photo, it's mounted on the corner of the building, making it highly visible to traffic around the mall. In the evenings, the bright neon sign is seen by thousands of theatre goers.

This is quite a large sign, as you can see from this photo of the fabrication phase on our shop floor. And it was a challenging project for our fabricators, as the sign has many elements, angles, and curves. It was also important to duplicate Bad Daddy's logo design and colors, so that their sign is a perfect match for the new restaurant.

After assembling the sign and installing the neon tubes, the final step was electrical testing. In this photo just the lower portion of the sign is turned on.

For this demanding project, BSC Signs called on the talents of Denver neon-bender Seth Totten of Acme Neon. Seth has worked on many neon projects for BSC Signs over the years, and his assistance with the neon elements on the Bad Daddy's sign is very much appreciated. You can read about Seth and his passion for neon in this article in Confluence Denver magazine. 

We were really pleased to be given the opportunity to create a custom sign for Bad Daddy's. It was a challenging project that required the technical skills and creativity of our whole team, and we're very happy with the finished sign. We love the look of neon!

Bad Daddy's Burger Bar has a very active Facebook page, where you can see their latest burger creations. You can also take a look at their website, which has complete menu listings.

  • We enlisted BSC to do a Sign Survey and Field Measure. Much to our surprise it was accomplished the very next day with concern and great follow up with all the details we would expect from our own employees.The office staff was very accommodating, thorough and friendly. We also requested an installation quote and received it the same day. Job well done.
