Attendees can make connections not only with the CEO, but also with the other driven young professionals in attendance. The CEOs represent a wide range of companies and industries and whether big or small, public or private, well-known or niche, good conversation is had by all. This event will be $25 per professional member and will include your dinner at BOLD Food and Drink, part of the Seasoned Brands family of restaurants!
About Mr. Fady Chamoun, Seasoned Brands LLC,
Chief Executive Officer
As Chief Executive Officer, Fady Chamoun applies the values of servant leadership to everything he does. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a customer at one of his restaurants, an employee, or someone in the community who needs his support. Mr. Chamoun wants to do whatever he can to make your life a little better through your encounter with him.
Mr. Chamoun is best known in Northeast Ohio for Aladdin’s Eatery, the American-Lebanese restaurant concept he and his wife, Sally, debuted in 1994. Aladdin’s has gained a sterling reputation across the region, but it’s not the only company, nor is it the only type of industry, in which Mr. Chamoun has found success.
He owns and manages property in Lakewood, and has his eye on additional properties to add to his real estate portfolio. He built a bakery business that was used to deliver fresh ingredients and bread to Aladdin’s, then helped Jasmine Distributing become a 50,000-square-foot warehouse with a state-of-the-art production line that produces more than 100,000 pitas each week for restaurants and markets across the region.
He’s a civic leader, an activist, a philanthropist, a board member and a 2004 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year winner, just to name a few of his accomplishments. As with any entrepreneur, money matters to Mr. Chamoun, and yet, it’s never been his top priority.Mr. Chamoun’s restaurant group, Seasoned Brands LLC, includes 41 restaurants in four states. In addition to Aladdin’s, the company of more than 1,000 employees includes two fast casual Lebanese restaurants named Sittoo’s, two upscale Lebanese restaurants named Taza—A Lebanese Grill, and three farm-to-table restaurants — The Oak Barrel, Forage Public House and BOLD Food & Drink. The latest addition to the Chamoun enterprise is Boaz Café, which opened its first location in Ohio City and is eyeing a second site in Shaker Heights. It all contributes to a 15 percent growth rate for the company each year.
Mr. Chamoun takes the same approach with each location, using his leadership to create a great experience for customers and an enviable opportunity to grow and develop for his employees.
