Despite the uncertainty over whether restaurants will shut down in the face of the spreading COVID-19 virus, plans were still on to develop a spot at a Fresno, California shopping center that will include a Greek-California food fusion spot called Daphne’s.
It’s being done by franchisee Mosa Gazali of Fresno and his partner who said it will be a Mediterranean-focused eatery, The Business Journal wrote and that construction was set to begin even though no one knows if restaurants will close for some time.
It will be in the popular fast-casual style and the partners said they hoped it would be completed in mid-April, along with a second restaurant called Wayback Burger they are bringing to the mall.
Gazali said he discovered Daphne’s when a friend took him and his business partner to the San Bernardino location and he loved how fresh the food was, including grilled meats, veggies and hummus too.
There will be pita sandwiches as well as vegan and vegetarian options. He loved it so much he said he put a deposit of 50% on a second location if the first one works out as he hopes.
