Longtime Nature's Table franchisee owners have debuted their fourth and fifth Bay area restaurants at St. Petersburg College.
Last month, Nature's Table opened on the second floor of SPC's Health Education Center in Pinellas Park at 7200 66th St. N., while another new location from the health-conscious restaurant brand launched Monday at 9200 113th St. N. inside the Seminole campus's University Partnership Center.
Both restaurants — whose opening profits will benefit Feeding Children Everywhere — are owned by brothers and SPC alumni Amer, Shadi and Samer Fackih, who operate three other Nature's Tables with their parents in downtown St. Pete, Clearwater and Largo. They offer full menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
In a statement Monday morning, Samer Fackih said they're excited to continue serving up healthier options, including gourmet wraps, protein bowls and smoothies, to college students, administration and faculty. With Nature's Table DTSP as their SPC flagship, the Fackih family, who's been with Nature's Table for 12-plus years, plans to open several other Tampa Bay locations over the next two years.
The 39-year-old fast-casual brand operates more than 65 restaurants, mostly in office buildings, airports, hospitals, university campuses and malls, across nine states.
