Earl Enterprises Buys Brio Italian Grille, Bravo! Italian Kitchen


Earl Enterprises has purchased Brio Italian Grille and Bravo! Italian Kitchen from FoodFirst Global Restaurants.

“We’re very excited about adding these restaurants to our group and look forward to not only investing in the future of Brio and Bravo!, but also the employees who are the backbone of these two restaurants,” said Robert Earl, Chairman of Earl Enterprises. “As a bright light in this challenging time, once all locations are fully operational, we look forward to welcoming back more than 4,000 employees who have been in limbo since FoodFirst filed for bankruptcy.”

Terms were not disclosed.

Brio and Bravo both have locations in 12 states. Brio and Bravo! join Earl Enterprises’ existing collection of restaurants that include Planet Hollywood, Buca di Beppo, Bertucci’s, Earl of Sandwich, Chicken Guy! and more.
