Twins, Triplets and Quads

The recent launches of Boda and Sonny’s are reminders that a growing number of Portland area food business are tied together by some degree of common ownership. Some of the connections are readily apparent such as Harding Lee Smith’s three ‘Room’ restaurants which share a single website and others are little less visible.
Note: I’ve continued to keep this list up to date as the business landscape continue to evolve (March 2011).
Here are the budding food empires that I’m aware of:

There are probably others, what am I missing?

  1. I thought that Pat’s and the Cafe at Pat’s were under entirely separate ownership, just sharing the building.

  2. Are you sure that Standard and Fore Stree are connected besides the location?
    Shay’s was opened by the owners of the Crooked Mile but they sold it but the name is still the same.

  3. With Havana South opening at the former Iguana’s space, Mike Boland is at the top of this list with 6-8 locations!

  4. Standard, I believe, use to be where the bar of Street and Company currently stands. Street and Company was also using 2 Fat Cats pies.

  5. I think Sengchai Thai on Forest Ave. and Thai Chef Buffet are the same, but it doesn’t matter now cause I think the buffet is closed.
