Founded four years ago by Paul Motenko and Jerry Hennessy, former co-CEOs of BJ's Restaurants, STACKED: Food Well Built is preparing to open its fifth restaurant, in Huntington Beach, Calif., this fall.
The full-service concept specializes in inventive, completely customizable twists on classic American fare and was a pioneer in integrating iPad technology to facilitate that customization. Its tabletop tablet system enables guests to select and swipe the ingredients they want to visually build their meals on the screen. The ordering process also allows them to pay for only those ingredients they choose, and to control how and when they order and pay. For those guests who prefer a traditional full-service experience, STACKED's "concierge-servers" are on hand to provide that service.
The new STACKED: Food Well Built in Huntington Beach will feature warm, contemporary interior décor, full bar and outdoor patio. Seating approximately 200 guests, the restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night.
STACKED operates additional units in Torrance, Cerritos, Thousand Oaks (pictured above) and San Diego, Calif.
