East Side Mario’s as it is known today is the result of a merger of three collective brands, namely, East Side Mario’s, Casey’s, and Pat & Mario’s with each restaurant having its own distinctive reputation. In 1980, the first Casey’s restaurant opened, which was followed by a second location before it was developed for the national market by Yesac Creative Foods. In 1982, the first Pat & Mario’s location opened as a takeout pizza and pasta business. East Side Mario’s first location was in Miami, Florida. Yesac Creative Foods sold these brands to Prime Restaurants in August 1989 – and Prime Restaurants has been instrumental in the success of the restaurant chain ever since.
