Founded by Owners Charley Akel and his brother Johnny Akel, the very first Seafood Express & More Restaurant location opened its doors to business in 1999. Prior to opening the restaurant, Charley had operated a successful seafood restaurant chain for more than 16 years, and along with his brother, had spent most of his life in the restaurant industry. From the very start, the Akel brothers made it their mission to provide quick service and the freshest seafood available, all in a family-friendly environment. Dedicated to running the business in accordance with those ideas, Seafood Express & More quickly grew in popularity, and by late 2008, they had to move to a bigger location, opening a second restaurant just a year later.
Today, the Akel brothers are still very hands-on and love interacting with their customers. In addition to offering a wide selection fresh seafood options, they are also committed to offering menu choices that are healthy, with food that is prepared using the finest methods and ingredients. Not only is frying oil replaced daily, but separate foods are cooked in separate vats to ensure that everything, from the French fries to the clam strips, maintains its own unique flavor.
