From Business Today:
Delaware North Companies is a quiet giant in the Buffalo business community. The company with $2.2 billion in annual sales has restaurants and resorts all over the world. The resort business has been growing steadily, adding glamorous retreats in Australia and Yellowstone National Park. One of its Australian getaways, Lizard Island Resort, may host the honeymoon of Prince Williams and Kate Middleton. The company started in Buffalo in 1915 and maintains its headquarters in the Key Towers on Main Street.
M&T Bank Corp., another Buffalo corporate giant, reported stellar earnings at the end of last week. Profits soared 49 percent for the fourth quarter compared with a year ago. In addition to increased earnings, the bank set aside $60 million less for credit losses. That reduction in set asides is showing up in the earnings reports of many banks this quarter.
