In 2006, first-generation Greek-Americans Ike Grigoropoulos, Dimitri Moshovitis, and Ted Xenohristos launched the full-service Cava Mezze restaurant in Rockville, with Moshovitis as executive chef. Following the launch of four additional restaurants, in 2008, Xenohristos, Grigoropoulos, and Moshovitis launched a line of dips and spreads to over 200 stores, including Whole Foods Market. In 2009, Brett Schulman joined them as CEO and co-founder of the fast-casual chain Cava (originally called Cava Mezze Grill, later rebranded as Cava Grill and then simply as Cava). They opened the first Cava restaurant in Bethesda, in January 2011.
