I’m a sucker for takeover news and learning what parent company owns what other smaller companies. Most times it would shock you to learn that your favorite product was owned by another completely different brand or even sister brands with brands that really don’t go together (take a look at this link for Kraft as an example).
On a little smaller than mega-brand news, according to the Orange County Register, Costa Mesa based The Beach Pit BBQ has acquired Huntington Beach based Smokin’ Mo’s BBQ. They are looking to further expand their BBQ brand throughout Orange County. Not sure if they are planning on keeping the Smokin’ Mo’s BBQ name or transitioning them to The Beach Pit BBQ. I have been to location in Newport Beach and was impressed with my meal.
