Philly’s Best announced its continued expansion throughout Southern California with restaurants coming soon to San Clemente and Orange. The company, which opened its first shop in Fountain Valley, California, in 1992, has 22 locations across Southern California.
The company’s San Clemente restaurant, located in the Ocean View Plaza Shopping Center, will be developed by Fresh Era Inc. – an affiliate of Galamar Enterprises, established in 1984. Galamar specializes in retail concessions for hotels in the Southern California area, working with hotels including Sheraton, Marriott, and Hilton.
The company’s restaurant in the City of Orange, located at 1409 W. Chapman, Suite C, will be developed by existing Philly’s Best franchisees, Ken Gray and Larry Erdman. Prior to becoming Philly’s Best franchisees in 2011, Gray and Erdman spent 25 years with Subway, facilitating the development of more than 200 Subway restaurants across Southern California.
“We started this business to bring a true taste of Philadelphia to Southern California,” says Bob Levey, co-founder of Philly’s Best. “We’re thrilled to have franchisees that are as passionate about providing delicious, authentic Philly food as we are.”
