House of Pendragon, a brewery that already has locations in Sanger and Clovis, teamed up with Pita Kabob, a successful Mediterranean fusion grill with 3 locations in Visalia. Both are excited to expand into downtown Fresno. The winner’s announced, “We couldn’t be more excited! We want to thank the Downtown Fresno Foundation for allowing us the opportunity to create something truly special and add to the strong revitalization of Downtown Fresno that has already begun. We also want to thank everyone who voted for us. Cheers!”
With $100,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs, the Create Here Business Plan Competition had 22 entries from eager Entrepreneurs. Judges were looking for the winner to add to the Downtown Fresno community, by attracting more people, and creating jobs. House of Pendragon & Pita Kabob’s new location will create 30 jobs.
