Mapping a Modern Mississippi < Places < Kismet’s


Kismet's was established on June 16, 1991 by Lee and Kathy Kennedy. The concept of Kismet's was conceived while Lee Kennedy, Jason Shepherd, Todd McKnight, Jackie Barnes and Sondra Barnes were all working together for another local sandwich shop. After 3 years of successful operation, Lee and Kathy sold the restaurant to Jason and Todd. After 3 years of the partnership Todd chose to sell to Jason. Kismet's Restaurant has a proven track record in Brandon. It is an excellent place to work for employees, some have been here since day one. If you ever have any questions about Kismet's find one of the original employees and ask them, they have seen it all.
