Since the chain was acquired from its founders by E&I Holdings Inc. in 2005, it's grown from 17 locations to its current roster and $17 million in sales to $45 million today. Eight locations are corporate owned, while the rest are franchised. The Scarborough restaurant will also provide free private meeting space.
