With more than 40+ years of combined success in the restaurant industry, culinary experts Masad Baba and George Zabaneh understand how to exceed the expectations of high-profile clients in upscale environments like few others.

Starting with Skyline Deli in 1993, our concepts were staples in dozens of Houston’s most exclusive office buildings and professional environments thanks to the restaurateurs’ extraordinary commitment to serving their guests and landlords with honesty, integrity, and the freshest, most delicious food in the city.

Now, with Elite Food Group, Baba and Zabaneh bring their culinary and business acumen to an exciting new portfolio of concepts as the owners of HighTower Café, HighTower Coffee Bar, and Murphy’s Deli. The fresh, farm to fork trio of brands gives franchisees great flexibility to best match concepts to available openings in office buildings and complexes while providing an upscale franchise option that is less expensive to engage, less taxing daily, and potentially more lucrative than many other franchise options.
