The Soros family has backed out of the famed upstate NY chain Dinosaur BBQ and has relinquished their majority shareholder status to John Stage, one of the co-founders of the Dino. Stage hasn't had majority shareholder status in ten years, and is ecstatic to regain control of his restaurant. Stage plans to return the Dinosaur's back-office operations to Syracuse as well as make a few minor tweaks here and there.
Stage has also gone on to start another business right across the street from the original Dinosaur location called Apizza Regionale, a wood fired pizza joint that has already grown exceptionally since its opening in 2016. Stage's success in starting food businesses is a hopeful nod towards the future, and I'd love to see what more he comes up with moving forward. There's a lot to be proud of when it comes to upstate New York's culinary achievements, be sure to support your local businesses today!
