A press release states that Teamshares has assisted more than 60 small businesses across 26 different states and 39 industries in their transition to become employee-owned, although the exact logistics of this transformation are still unknown. The Brooklyn-based company describes itself as “a hybrid of a software company, an education company, an investment company, and a support network."
“It allows us to retire early as we set course for the next chapter in our lives while leaving behind a legacy for our employees," Goldberg writes to his fans, family and friends. “This ensures that Stone Soup can never be sold again and will be around for many years of growth.”
Teamshares is currently undergoing the process of hiring a new president of Stone Soup Company, but a post from Linkedin.com shows that the company is no longer accepting applications for the position.
Not to be confused with St. Pete’s Stone Soup Cafe, this Best of the Bay-winning Ybor City stalwart—located at 1919 E 7th Ave.—is known for its comforting soups, stacked Cuban sammies and philanthropic efforts.
Goldberg, an industrial engineer by trade, opened the restaurant in 2009 and quickly expanded its menu to include salads, bowls and desserts as well.
