THE CAFE ENTERPRISES, INC. STORY
Cafe Enterprises, Inc. was formed in 1988, to serve as parent company to FATZ® and other restaurant concepts that would follow. The company set out to continue to build the success of FATZ® by focusing on the attributes that have contributed to the restaurant's popularity. Its quality, craveable food served in an environment that feels like home has allowed the concept to grow, and today, Cafe Enterprises, Inc. owns and operates 47 FATZ® restaurants across Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and the Carolinas. With a strong group of operating partners and a support team of seasoned professionals, the company is poised for continued growth in the Southeast and beyond.
The first FATZ® started with humble beginnings, operating out of a converted peach shed in Spartanburg, S.C., in November of 1988. FATZ® was founded with principles to secure a convenient location, develop a varied, reasonably-priced menu and offer ample portions of quality food while providing upbeat service in a comfortable atmosphere. The ideals that emerged from that shed all those years ago still stand strong today in every FATZ® location.
Cafe Enterprises, Inc. has added two more restaurant concepts to their portfolio in the summer of 2012 – Tavern 24 and Tablefields, a fast casual concept. Both restaurants will be established in Upstate South Carolina.
