Abstract: We present a three-site Pati–Salam gauge model able to explain the Standard Model flavor hierarchies while, at the same time, accommodating the recent experimental hints of lepton-flavor non-universality in B decays. The model is consistent with low- and high-energy bounds, and predicts a rich spectrum of new states at the TeV scale that could be probed in the near future by the high- pT experiments at the LHC.
