Dragon Star opened its doors in August 2010. Francisco Cho, the owner, is a 3rd generation restauranteur and has also worked for several big asian chain restaurants throughout the States before embarking on what would be his very first restaurant. His culinary desires are ignited by a family trend that goes over three generations, with his grandfather owning a restaurant in Hong Kong for the past 5 decades.
Francisco graduated with a business degree from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. While in school, he was already working as a General Manager of a local Asian Restaurant Chain with concepts throughout Asia. Quickly, everybody leaned of Francisco's keen eye for the quality in product and service and moved up the ranks. After several years in the corporate world, Francisco still had the desire to have something that would have his name in it. While visiting his family in West Palm Beach, he learned of a location for a potential Asian Concept Restaurant. He quickly quit his job and signed the lease; thereafter, Dragon Star was born.
Only months after Dragon Star opened, it started to have its regular flow of customers to the point that they would line up during dinner time to get a table. Everybody was eager to try the same type of cuisine they have experienced in New England and the West Coast. Francisco Cho brings through Dragon Star the Cantonese and Szechuan style of cuisine, the same one brought from the first Chinese immigrants who established the different Chinatowns in New England and the West Coast.
