Franklin Square Market Entering New Era

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Franklin Square Market, formerly known as PDT Market, has in its own words “made every mistake a young business can make.” But now a new leadership team is taking the helm. 

Mark Delos and Jullie Delos will be the “collective driving force” behind “culinary innovation” at Franklin Square, according to a statement released by the company last week.

 For the past seven years, Chef Mark Delos has overseen all culinary operations for Mazzone Hospitality’s catering division. Jullie Delos, Franklin Square’s new Director of Hospitality and Operations, was formerly Director of Sales and Events for Friends Lake Inn in Chestertown. She also managed the pop-up restaurant division of Mazzone. At Franklin Square, Jullie’s first order of business will be revamping the Market Bar and Cafe.

“Mark and I have wanted something of our own to be part of; something we could invest ourselves in,” Jullie said in a statement. “Nothing was the right fit until now.” 

Originally named PDT Market, Franklin Square underwent a name change when its original founder, Chef Adam Foti, left the business in September 2023. “The effort required to build and sustain PDT Market, and simultaneously keep PDT Catering functioning at the very high standards we set for ourselves, was not always compatible,” Foti wrote in a social media post at the time. Shortly after Foti’s departure, PDT announced its name change, writing that the business had “made every mistake a young business can make. But we’ve listened, we’ve learned, and we’ve adapted.”

Earlier this month, the Albany Business Review reported that Chef Foti leased a building in Malta near the Roosevelt Inn and Suites that will become the new homebase for PDT Catering.

Meanwhile, Franklin Square will enter a new era. “With Mark and Jullie joining the team,” the company wrote in a statement, “Franklin Square Market is poised for great things.”
