The Syracuse Post-Standard reported in September 2011 that a local family had purchased Brioschi from its Italian owners, who had decided to cease manufacturing and go out of business after 130 years, and that the purchasers planned to move Brioschi operations from Fair Lawn, New Jersey, to East Syracuse. The purchasers perceived great appeal to environmentally conscious consumers in the product's traditional claim to have a no-aspirin, no-chemical, all-natural composition. They believed that what they called a stepped-up, "multi-platform" marketing campaign emphasizing this aspect of the product would make it profitable again.
The Syracuse purchasers recognized, however, that financial assistance from the state and local governments would need to be in place for their plans to bear fruit.
