Our Story


Bound by our Roots, United as a Family – A rising generation carrying on the business legacy. 

A Proven Success

Cedars Group

Cedars Group was formed in 2018 by Jeoffrey Feghali, Ryan Feghali, and Johnny Baklini. While they are all affiliated with the top-performing company in the Little Caesars system, they branched out on their own to apply what they learned in new markets with new opportunities. Their mission is to achieve operational excellence while elevating the communities they serve. What started out as a single store in Ridgecrest, California, has expanded into an operation running 28 locations in three different states. Their goal is to continue growing in different markets, without limiting themselves to just a single business.

Some people are meant to spread their wings, others to spread their roots!
