Mendocino Farms (Los Angeles), a fast-casual restaurant specializing in gourmet sandwiches, in conjunction with its investment partner GrowthPoint Partners, has announced a capital investment by Catterton Partners. The investment will be used to expand the Mendocino Farms concept throughout Southern California and beyond. Terms were not disclosed. Founded by Mario Del Pero and his wife and business partner Ellen Chen in 2005, Mendocino Farms has established five restaurants in Los Angeles.
Del Pero will continue as CEO. “Catterton is the right partner to help us take our unique restaurant concept to the next level,” said Del Pero. “Not only does Catterton have a track record of success with restaurants, but they also have expertise helping to grow brands that promote all-natural ingredients such as Plum Organics, O.N.E. coconut water, Van's Natural Foods, and Sweet Leaf Tea, which we believe will be invaluable as our brand matures." Catterton Partners is an NCN Cornerstone Investor.
