company history

Our group of restaurants began in 1967 with one single Kentucky Fried Chicken store on Genesee Street in Utica, New York. The chicken was stored in a snowbank out back because we didn’t have enough money to buy a refrigerator. Luckily, that first store was a success, and we were soon able to purchase a proper refrigerator. We grew on the success of that store and expanded our ownership of KFC stores, and added several other quick-service brands along the way. We ventured into Dunkin Donuts in 1971, Taco Bell in 2000, and Coldstone Creamery in 2004.

Our expansion into full-service restaurants began in 1975 with The Butcher Block Steak and Seafood in Plattsburgh, NY, and now includes The Log Jam Restaurant in Lake George (1998), and Bountiful Bread in Albany (1997). We recently opened Mill Artisan District Catering in Schenectady (2019) and are developing a second Bountiful Bread, and a new concept, Annabel’s Pizza Company, in the same area, scheduled to open in early 2020.

For fifty years, we have been fortunate in our ability to grow our business by growing our team and widening our circle of customers. We are proud of our staff— those who have been with us for decades and shared in our success, those who have recruited family members to join us, those who retired with us, and those who have just joined us. Our team is invaluable. So, too, are our customers—those who make us part of their morning ritual, those who are our regular lunch guests, and those whose family vacations include a meal with us. More than anything, we are rewarded by seeing our customers return again and again—this is a true mark of our shared success.
