Ben’s was founded by Ronnie Dragoon in 1972. After graduating from Brooklyn College with a degree in Political Science and completing his tour as a Vista Volunteer in Indiana, Mr. Dragoon moved back to New York and put down $6,500 to open Ben’s Kosher Restaurant, which he named after his father. His humble upbringing instilled in him a desire to please others and, since then, he has incorporated that trait into his business philosophy. Currently, Ben’s has six locations throughout Nassau, Queens and Manhattan Counties and Florida, currently employing over 250 people. Mr. Dragoon can also be seen working behind the counter at the Greenvale location, mentoring younger employees about the restaurant industry and personally overseeing the restaurant’s day-to-day operations.
Delivery can be arranged for an additional charge. For more information, please call (888) 344-BENS (2367) or visit www.bensdeli.net.
