VIDEO: Strata, owner of Beckett’s, buys BG restaurant
SamB’s is being sold to a familiar face.
Jim Ferrell, who is the owner of the popular downtown Bowling Green restaurant, is selling SamB’s to George Strata — who also owns a very trendy eatery down the street.
Strata, who owns Beckett’s, is purchasing SamB’s from Ferrell, who is retiring after 50 years in the restaurant business. If this all sounds familiar, it’s because the two switched restaurant locations in 2021: Beckett’s Burger bar moved from 146 N. Main St. and SamB’s moved from 163 S. Main St. (Video by J.D.
