Business Scene for the week of 3/4/20

Moons new owners
Lisa and Mike Kelly have sold the famed Quincy restaurant, Moon’s, to the Santos family: Edgar and Leticia, and Luis and Celedonia, who have owned and operated the Paradise Grill in Quincy since 2013. Edgar returns to Quincy after five years working as a chef at fine dining establishments in Reno. The new owners will continue to offer the same menu items featuring pastas, steaks, pizza and other specialties that Moon’s is known for. The Kellys’ plans include staying very active in the community where Lisa will continue working in education while Mike keeps busy with his construction business, Sierra Moon Enterprises.
