King's Seafood

Brothers Lou and Mickey King began to build restaurants in Southern California in 1945. Successful for nearly 40 years, the family sold the restaurants to Tiny Naylor's, Inc., in 1982. Cousins Jeff and Sam had worked in the business. Jeff sat on the 1984 Olympic Committee when the Olympics were to be hosted in Los Angeles. Sam signed on with Tiny Naylor's.

A restaurant in Long Beach, The Carriage Club, was up for sale and Sam took a look at it for Tiny Naylor's. They chose to take a pass, but Sam thought it had potential. He and Jeff decided to start their own company with this restaurant as their first location. They signed the lease in November 1983 and opened 555 East, which is still operating today. That was the start of King's Seafood Company.

For over 75 years, seafood has been their passion. They feel that healthy oceans are imperative for the planet, their restaurants, and their guests, and source fish from sustainably-managed fisheries.
