Screen star promotes family rib franchise

Vincent D'Onofrio, star of NBC's "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and movies such as "Men in Black," is part owner with his sister and brother-in-law of a Rib City franchise in Sandy, Utah.

Salt Lake Tribune
by Dawn House 8.16.07

SANDY - There is precious little celebrity stardust sprinkled around Utah's eateries.
Robert Redford and his Zoom and Sundance restaurants come to mind. And former Jazz player Mark Eaton's Tuscany and Franck's.
Now, diners can think of Detective Robert Goren, the lead character in the TV series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" or the hilarious villain, Edgar, in "Men in Black," when they munch on slow-cooked barbecued meats at Rib City. The restaurant opens on Saturday, and then seven days a week, initially from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Actor Vincent D'Onofrio has teamed with his sister and brother-in-law, Toni and Ron Jorgensen, to open this Southern, speciality barbecue restaurant at 2071 E. 9400 South, Sandy.
This is D'Onofrio's first Rib City franchise and the Jorgensens' second. The other opened last year in American Fork, and there are plans for franchises in Park City, Saratoga Springs and St. George. More.

Thanks Mel, Judy, and Patti
