- Delaware North charts global course with caution - David Robinson/The Buffalo News
Jeremy Jacobs Jr. thinks it’s a good idea for Delaware North Cos. to branch out into new countries.
He just doesn’t like going into unfamiliar territory.
So the Buffalo-based food service, gaming and hospitality giant has been following what Jacobs calls a “regional global” approach to its fast-growing international business, which has more than tripled its sales over the last five years.
“Stay close to what you know, and don’t stray too far toward the fringes,” Jacobs, a principal at Delaware North, said Thursday during a speech to members of the World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara.
[Apparently nothing was said about the uncomfortable fact that DNC also owns the dad-gum Boston Bruins.]
- Brothers buy former Marinaccio's - Jonathan D. Epstein/The Buffalo News
The owners of the Family Tree restaurant in Eggertsville have purchased the shuttered Marinaccio's Steak & Seafood restaurant in the Village of Williamsville, with plans to reshape its menu and offerings.
Nectarios and Raymond Kollidas, through Kollidas Properties LLC, paid $875,000 to buy the high-profile restaurant site at 5877 Main St. from LWH Restaurant, controlled by Paul Marinaccio. The Italian restaurant, previously called the Little White House, has been closed since the end of December after a seven-year run.
