Cafe Enterprises, Inc. was formed in 1988, to serve as parent company to FATZ Cafe and other restaurant concepts that would follow. The company set out to continue to build the success of FATZ Cafe 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 45 FATZ Cafe 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.

Cafe Enterprises, Inc. added another restaurant concept to its portfolio in the summer of 2012 – Tavern 24.


At FATZ we clearly understand that any success we may achieve is driven by the level of service we provide to the folks we work with and the guests who choose our restaurants. That's what we're all about: taking care of people. Our great food and warm, friendly atmosphere may bring people in, but it's the way we take care of them that keeps bringing them back. We, as associates of FATZ, will strive in the areas of product quality, service, cleanliness and value to operate our restaurants noticeably better than our competition. Our goal is to be the strongest casual dining restaurant team as determined by financial strength, to do what we say we are going to do, and to build our reputation among associates, consumers and suppliers as well as within our communities.
