Don Pablo's Returns to Texas Roots

Texas-born restaurant chain known for its "Big Tex, Bold Mex" flavors and attitude returns to its Texas roots with acquisition by Food Management Partners.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (PRWEB) January 31, 2014 - Don Pablo’s is returning to its Texas roots with the acquisition of the brand by Food Management Partners (FMP) from Atlanta-based Rita Restaurant Corporation.

A San Antonio-based restaurant management and development group, Food Management Partners is comprised of partners having more than 60 years of franchise experience, and includes operations across 21 states involving such brands as Buffalo Wild Wings and Zio’s Italian Kitchen. All management functions for Don Pablo’s will be absorbed into the San Antonio corporate office.

"We are very excited about the acquisition of a heritage brand like Don Pablo’s," says Peter Donbavand, Vice President of Business Development for FMP. "With its history of serving high-quality Tex-Mex cuisine and excellent customer service, Don Pablo’s is the kind of concept we are always on the look out for."

Don Pablo’s has been serving up "Big Tex, Bold Mex" flavors and attitude for over 20 years to legions of fans. Originally from Lubbock, it is best known for its authentic and flavorful food and signature margaritas. Combine that with fresh flour tortillas made all day long in a traditional tortilla stand, and it’s easy to see why Don Pablo’s has been a favorite place to savor a genuine Tex-Mex dining experience.

"We are confident that our experience as operators will allow us to continue the rich tradition that Don Pablo’s has built over the last 20 or so years," Donbavand said. "A concept like this fits nicely into our portfolio of restaurants."
