It all started with a concept ...
Raphael Berry has been an interior architect and designer for 38 years. He is a graduate of the prestigious school, L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, and he began his career designing homes and restoring historic houses.
On November 21, 1986, Raphael relocated to Los Angeles. He opened a design gallery in Silverlake, and he was soon involved in the opening of many of Los Angeles’ most visible night-spots of the times, including “Paris Boom Boom”, “La Cage aux Folles”, and “Castelle”.
In 1996, Raphael Berry envisioned a new concept. A Mediterranean/Italian eatery serving and delivering a full menu — featuring a signature 20” hand tossed pizza, until four o’clock in the morning. Drawing on his background in design and his years of restaurant and club experience, Raphael acquired a small Italian restaurant on W. 3rd Street and, within 3 months, he opened berri’s to the public.
The food and atmosphere of berri’s caught the attention immediately, and ultimately the hours, the music and the late night ambiance created by Raphael made berri’s into the iconic LA feature it has become.
Today, Raphael Berry’s company has expanded into two separate franchise entities.
The original berri's launched internationally, in Abu Dhabi, soon to be followed by berri’s Dubai and berri’s Paris.
berri’s Kitchen, a fast and fresh take-out and delivery spin-off concept, located in Hollywood and Westwood.
What Does It Take?
Raphael Berry and his team are highly qualified, hard working and self motivated, but first and foremost, they are infused by the spirit of Berri’s and Berri’s has in turn grown through their combined passions. More than experience, if you share the spirit of Berri’s, then you should fill out our application and get ready to work harder than ever, and see your passion renewed over and over, as you to capture the cool magical groove of berri’s.
berri's is the very essence of Late Night LA. We’ve been serving the community and the ever eager night owls of the city since 1996. It is not just a customer base or a clientele, it is a following. While other concepts open and close, victims of economic tides. Our concept has stood the test of time and has redefined itself as a lifestyle eatery where artist and like minded people from all walks of life, and every country in the world, come together in a creative and vibrant commons. We receive numerous requests about both of our franchise opportunities and so we further recommend that you indicate your level of interest by filling out our non-binding application for additional information.
