Guy Fieri sells interest in Johnny Garlic’s

Longtime partner Steve Gruber takes over, plans overhaul

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri has sold his interest in the Johnny Garlic’s and Tex Wasabi’s concepts to former business partner Steve Gruber, the company said Wednesday.

The agreement amicably ends the 20-year partnership between Fieri and Gruber, who co-founded Johnny Garlic’s Inc. in Santa Rosa, Calif., in 1996. The company operates eight restaurants in California, including seven Johnny Garlic’s and one location of the sushi-barbecue concept Tex Wasabi’s in Santa Rosa.
