No, I’ve never been involved with Dino’s Pizza.
In Michigan, the Dino’s Pizza chain that you’re referring to went out of business around 1990. I had heard that the original owner (John Ray and sons) moved to the Carolinas and opened a few pizzerias. But I don’t know what has become of them. Haven’t heard anything about them in years. I assume that there’s nothing left of the original Dino’s Pizza chain.
I worked with the Ray sons for about ten years in the Carolinas. We had a few million-dollar stores there for a while, and owned the markets we were in. But Dino’s wasn’t willing to learn from the talent they had collected and began some pretty unsavory business practices. I believe they still have 3-4 stores in the Fayetteville, NC area but are in the crossfire of a corporate PJ’s and Domino’s war zone. They’ve tried to update their image, but the operation is still stuck in the 80’s.
