Sacramento, CA (June 10, 2015) - Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa) today joined the California Small Business Association (CSBA) in honoring local Orange County restaurant Zov's as the 2015 Small Business of the Year from the 37th Senate District. Zov's owners, Armen Karamardian and Taleene Karamardian joined Senator Moorlach today at the CSBA awards luncheon in Sacramento.  The ceremony's featured speakers included Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, Senate President Pro-Tem Kevin De Leon, Assembly Minority Leader Kristin Olsen, and Senate Minority Leader Elect Jean Fuller.

"Zov's is a great small business, and a true mainstay in Orange County," said Senator Moorlach. "The Karamardian's 28 years of hard work deserve to be honored. If you haven't tried Zov's, go today-and order the spiced lamb burger!"

Founded in 1987 by Chef Zov Karamardian, legendary Zov's Bistro & Bakery in Tustin, CA has become a culinary institution.  Armen and Taleene operate Zov's Bistro in Tustin and Zov's Cafe, Bakery and Bar in Irvine and Newport Beach.  In addition to offering cooking classes, and special events catering, Zov's has also opened a new Southern California location at 1801 E. Katella Ave., Anaheim, CA.  Zov's was also recognized as Open Table's 2015 Diner's Choice for their Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Armenian cuisine.
