Pinchers marks 25th anniversary but some restaurants remain closed after Ian


Southwest Florida’s Phelan Family Brands achieved its 25th year in business two weeks after losing a few of its restaurants devastated by Hurricane Ian.  

Reaching its silver anniversary was a bittersweet moment for the Phelan family because some of its 22 restaurants were damaged in the storm. Five Phelan restaurants have yet to reopen after Ian but the local company plans to rebuild and looks forward to the next 25 years, Phelan said.  

“Southwest Florida has been so good to us. I could never be angry with Southwest Florida,” said Grant Phelan, CEO of Phelan Family Brands, a restaurant group based in Bonita Springs. “It’s a tremendous place to live and work and raise a family.”
