This afternoon, The Staten Island Advance reported that Greg Fosdal the owner of the island’s Daddy-O’s franchises has plans to open up a Jose Tejas (the regional tex-mex favorite) on the north shore of Staten Island.
“We are 80 percent into the negotiations with Jose Tejas,” said Fosdal.
The Tex-Mex restaurant — which has two New Jersey locations, including one in Iselin that is popular with Staten Islanders — would open in a 6,000-square-foot space already leased by Fosdal in the building, dubbed “Minthorne Street,” he said.
“We need a Jose Tejas on the North Shore. We need to build up the North Shore. We need to give Staten Island what they always wanted — this is one of the restaurants they want. And I’m going to do it,” said Fosdal.
