There's been a change of ownership at one of Montreal's most popular fast-food joints.

Boustan Restaurant, the Lebanese fast food institution on Montreal's Crescent St. has new owners.

George and Peter Hatzis promise to keep the same tastes regulars know and love.

But the familiar face of Imad Smaidi, known to his customers as "Mr. Boustan," will be missed.

Smaidi has carved his last piece of meat from his famous shawarma spit, saying good-bye to 18-hour days.

The CBC's Thomas Daigle has more on the changing-of-the-guard at Boustan.
