Saleh Obeid was a special guest at Thursday’s meeting of the Corcoran Rotary Club. He was invited by Rotary to share information about Kings Drive in during the Business to Business highlight at the luncheon session.
Obeid told Rotarians he owned and operated the business for the past 15 years. The family-operated fast food restaurant provides the community with great food (judged by the Corcoran Journal last summer for serving the best burgers in town), friendly service and good prices, said Obeid. In addition to their burgers, the restaurant’s milk shakes and pastrami sandwiches are favorites with local residents.

Obeid is a native of Yemen who came to the United States at age 14. He has lived in the Central Valley since moving to the states and went to Porterville High School. He spent the last 15 years working in Corcoran.

He told Rotarians that he is a great example of what can be accomplished in America. Those who are willing to work can come from any background to achieve the American dream.
Obeid is a member of the Corcoran Chamber of Commerce and supports youth sports at local schools.
His favorite business in Corcoran is Cost Less Foods. He said they have just about everything a family needs in groceries at good prices–and the staff is very friendly.
