Summer 2019 ownership change
DuBois retired in the summer of 2019 after years of operating the restaurant with his wife Nancy. His father, Harold, and his wife, Janet, opened The Spot on July 4, 1945.
Robert and Peter Lee now operate the restaurant along with Peter’s cousin, Katherine Lee, the general manager. The car hops, the fresh food and homemade sodas have not been changed. “You don’t change anything that is not broken,” Peter Lee explained. “Some employees have been with us for 20-plus years.”
The Lee family is committed to modernizing some aspects of the business including launching an ordering app. They’ve also expanded the menu by adding a meatless burger and meatless wings to the menu.
