Founder, Hacop “Jack” Baghdassarian

Kabob History

The first Massis Kabob opened in Glendale, California where they served dinner-sized plates with quality meats and sides, which was a very new concept in the fast-food industry. Hence why they continue to keep going 45 years strong, which showcases their symbol of hard work and dedication to bring customers the quality Mediterranean food experience.

Founder Hacop “Jack” Baghdassarian promised fresh, hand-made food daily quality for all customers, as Middle Eastern food requires dedication and time. His dedication to his craft has endured and has given the new generation that traditional sit-down style that feels like home cooking with a modern touch. That is why his restaurants can be found within the popular food courts in Los Angeles, such as the Glendale Galleria and the Westfield Culver City mall.

New, Modern Massis Kabob

We spoke to Gevik M Baghdassarian, son of Hacop, is now helping pave way to the future of Massis Kabob. He showcases the same energy that his father once had, ensuring that the family business doesn’t stop but continues with him. Gevik gave us a nice tour to the Westfield Century City Mall location, showcasing how each food is prepared fresh in a daily basis.

Traditions are everything to Gevik and he explained, “Everything you see in our stores are more than just food, in fact it is about the passion that we give to the people.” As Gevik says this, he wonderfully points to his father’s photo attached in front of the store in the Westfield Century City Mall.

“We want to keep pushing for our father’s dream to serve delicious Armenian food at a great price. He believed delicious food was made for everyone, I will keep pushing for that respect towards our customers.”
