SAN DIEGO // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Papa Bello Enterprises, Inc (Pink Sheets: PAPA) announced today that the company has closed its acquisition of Royal India Express (RIE), a San Diego based, fast casual, Indian restaurant concept located in the Horton Plaza Shopping Mall in the Gas Lamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. Royal India Express is another successful restaurant concept from the Kambo Brothers, which also created and manages The Kebab Cafe, one of Papa Bello Enterprises restaurant concepts.
