Early life and education
Kenneth Davitian was born on June 19, 1953 in an Armenian-American family in Montebello. His father, a Soviet soldier during World War II, was captured by the Nazis. He was placed at a Armenische Legion camp in Stuttgart. After the end of the war, he emigrated to the United States through the efforts of George Mardikian. Davitian worked in his father's waste management company. He graduated from Whittier College.
Davitian founded a restaurant in 2003 called The Dip, which was located in Los Angeles. His son Robert runs his baseball-themed hot dog restaurant The Infield in Sherman Oaks, which boasts a hot dog, conceived by Charlie Sheen, called the "Charlie Sheen Dog with Tiger Blood".
