don-pooh.jpg11-year music industry veteran, Don Pooh, has announced the formation of a new chain of seafood restaurants called Famous Seafood. The Brooklyn, NY native, who formed Don Pooh Management and DP Music Group, discovered and managed Foxy Brown, co-executive produced The Firm’s 1997 self-titled album and discovered former Bad Boy artist Shyne. In 1999, he accepted the position of Executive Vice President at MCA Records where he co-executive produced Mary J. Blige’s album, No More Drama. Now, Pooh is venturing into the fast food market with Famous Seafood. “After discovering that only two to four percent of proven franchises fail, it made great business sense to start my own,” says Pooh. “Upon assessing the marketplace, I realized there was a void in the quick service restaurant industry in the seafood segment.” Famous Seafood currently has stores located in Northern New Jersey, Brooklyn and Manhattan. “I am very excited about the growth of the company,” says Paul Parris, VP of Marketing. “The consumer feedback has been incredible to our food, especially in our healthier alternative menu options. The secret recipes for the Famous Sauce, the Soul Slaw and the Famous Fried Lobster Tails are a sure hit with customers.”
