The mother-daughter team of Leeza Brazier and Leila Bakkali are launching their second Farmer Boys location in Perris, California, following their 2018 opening in Gardena. The duo, who will eventually develop five more throughout California, bring business experience to their locations. Leeza Brazier, for example, has owned three McDonald’s locations in England for over 16 years.
“We have had an incredible experience with Farmer Boys thus far, and we are thrilled to continue to grow alongside the brand with our new location,” Leeza Brazier said in a company press release. “As aspiring business owners, we wanted to invest in a brand that has meaning to us, and Farmer Boys is the perfect example of a business that cares about its team wholeheartedly. I was first introduced to Farmer Boys in 1996 and had the chance to meet with their team which ultimately drove us to invest in the concept. The position that Farmer Boys holds within the industry is special and unique — and one that is unmatched when compared to competing brands.”
The Perris restaurant, located at Ethanac and Trumble Roads, is being built from the ground up and will have a new grill and a renovated kitchen.
“We see all of our franchisees as valued members of our Farmer Boys family and Leeza and Leila are no different,” John Lucas, VP of franchise development at Farmer Boys, said in the release. “It’s always exciting to see existing franchisees show interest in expanding further with our brand. As top-performing Farmer Boys owners, we have full confidence that the duo will provide yet another excellent restaurant experience to their guests in Perris and will continue to pave the way for the brand’s expansion in the coming years.”
Farmer Boys has over 100 in California, Nevada and Arizona.
