If you’ve ever traveled through California, you may have seen us up and down the state. That’s because as of January 2021, we have more than 60 company-owned-and-operated restaurants, plus more than a dozen franchise-owned restaurants in California and Arizona.

We Are Constantly Growing

We’ve come a long way since the little pizzeria in Fresno, California. From World Famous Pizza at Me-n-Ed’s to Blast & Brew American Eatery and Taphouse, we broke out new dining and food-delivery concepts in various markets. Our latest success is a ghost kitchen in partnership with third-party delivery app DoorDash.

And we don’t intend on stopping. We keep up with industry trends and the latest technology – from our food and menu items to our websites, apps, kiosks and social media presence.
