A Downtown Fresno brewpub is rebranding and offering a new menu after a joint venture has decided to part ways.
When House of Pendragon in Sanger and Pita Kabob & Grill in Visalia came together, they brought Mediterranean food and Arthurian-themed beers together to form Hop PK.
Now, the two companies have split, according to a Facebook post from the company.
“HoP and PK have decided to part ways,” the post read. “This decision will allow both companies to pursue their individual plans for future growth.”
The brewery at 820 Van Ness Ave. will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday as they move toward singular ownership. In addition, they will bring in a transitional menu of “gourmet burgers and specialties.”
“With HoP taking over, we will be able to do a lot more than we were able to do before,” the post went on to state.
HoP PK goes back to when owners Chafic Dada of Pita Kabob and Tommy Caprelian from House of Pendragon came together to create a new business that would feature food and brews. In 2015, their business proposal in the Downtown Fresno Partnership’s Create Here campaign won, earning them a suite of prizes.
The restaurant then opened in 2017 for lunch and dinner.
Neither House of Pendragon nor Pita Kabob immediately responded to requests for comment.
