Papa Bello Enterprises Inc. has signed a letter of intent to acquire the Kebab CafÃ©, a Southern California-based concept specializing in Middle Eastern cuisine with a European twist, according to a company statement.
The Kebab Cafe currently operates a flagship location in the Westfield Mall in La Jolla, Calif., and anticipates opening up to 10 new corporately owned locations in 2010.
Kebab CafÃ© creators Sam and Jag Kambo will both continue to build and manage the brand under the Papa Bello Enterprises umbrella. The current development plan includes opening locations in food courts, airports and malls throughout the world.
"We see tremendous value in diversifying and adding new concepts that are different from our core brand," Jim Price, Papa Bello CEO, said. "We understand that regional tastes vary from state to state and the public demands variety."
