Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen Background
Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen is one of a number of different chains of casual dining establishments owned by a family-owned, restaurant holding company called Pappas Restaurants. The first Pappas restaurant, Pappas Seafood House; opened in 1980 and was an immediate success. Other chains owned by Pappas Restaurants include Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Pappasito’s Cantina, Pappas Burger, Yia Yia Mary’s Greek Kitchen, and Pappas Bar-B-Q. There are 60 restaurants all told, located in Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Beaumont, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, and Phoenix.
Pappas Restaurants is a multi-generational enterprise that was started in 1897 by a Greek immigrant named H.D. Pappas who opened successful restaurants in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Texas. His sons, Pete and Jim, moved the nascent company’s headquarters to Houston, Texas. Currently the business is run by Jim’s three sons, Harris, Christopher and Greg.
The company does not lease its restaurant locations, preferring to own the lots on which its restaurants are located. Therefore expansion generally takes place during times of economic downturn when real estate is relatively cheap.
The first Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen opened in San Antonio in 1993. Presently there are 30 Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen locations in Phoenix, Arizona; Greenwood Village, Colorado; Alpharetta, Marietta and Norcross, Georgia; Westmont, Illinois; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Springdale, Ohio; and 14 locations in Texas including three restaurants in Dallas and seven in Houston.
