RIVERBANK, Calif. Jan. 14 // PRNewswire // -- The local Riverbank area communities now have another family-friendly, farm fresh choice in their neighborhood. Farmer Boys Restaurants are inviting the community to come and celebrate the Grand Opening of their newest location at 2453 Claribel Road on Friday and Saturday, January 22nd and 23rd, 2010. The opening of this Farmer Boys Restaurant makes it the 67th location for the franchise and the first in the Modesto area. Its owners Joseph Sadek and Omar Mawas are community and family-oriented and are not new to restaurant and service industries. Joseph was a Director of Operations at Denny Restaurants for nine years before he became a franchise owner at Farmer Boys in 2006. Currently, they both own and operate two other Farmer Boys locations in California, one in Fontana and the other in Escondido.
Farmer Boys Restaurants are found in Southern and Central California and Nevada. This restaurant icon is known for its award-winning burgers, monster-sized onion rings and crispy zucchini which are prepared exclusively with farm fresh ingredients. According to Joseph, the decor and atmosphere along with the smell of farm fresh breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees cooking make this fast casual dining restaurant feels like home. Additionally, although the burgers are the cornerstone of the menu, Farmer Boys Restaurants offer a wide variety of delicious sandwiches, wraps, salads and breakfast choices which are cooked to order just like their world-famous burgers. Sadek's eagerness to please his customers showed when he stated; "Our commitment to our guest is to continue serve the highest quality of food throughout all day parts, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. We want to deliver the most delicious burgers and food they have ever tasted. We want to be their Restaurant of Choice. We use only the freshest, most flavorful ingredients and we top it off with exceptional guest service. I encourage everyone to come, celebrate with us and taste our food."
The celebration is expected to start on Friday, January 22nd, 2010 at the 2453 Claribel Road location just east of Oakdale Road in the Crossroads Plaza. Mayor Virginia Madueno of Riverbank will be present to assist Joseph Sadek and Omar Mawas, the franchise owners, with the ceremonial ribbon cutting at 3:00pm.
