Catalina Restaurant Group Inc., parent to the Coco's Bakery Restaurant and Carrows Restaurants family-dining chains, has been acquired by an affiliate of Food Management Partners, or FMP, the company said recently.

Carlsbad, CA-based Catalina, which operates 149 restaurants across the two brands, has been owned for the past nine years by Zensho America Corp., a subsidiary of Zensho Holdings Co. Ltd., a Japan-based multi-concept operator with more than 4,000 restaurants around the world, including the beef-bowl chain Sukiya. Zensho bought the group in 2006.

"After nearly a decade shepherding the Coco's and Carrows brands, we are pleased to have found the right owner to begin the next chapter in the CRG story," said Yasunori Hiraguchi, president of Zensho America. "FMP brings the mix of talent, experience and vision needed to lead the growth of these businesses. We are confident Coco's and Carrows will thrive under FMP's leadership."
