In 1982, Narnmour invited Paul Cohn to become a part of his new restaurant management company, therefore acquiring J. Paul's in what would become the first of many restaurants they would create together Since that time, there have been many successful restaurants that have made up the restaurant division, they include Paolo's, a popular Italian restaurant (there are currently five locations throughout the D.
