The Wexford House, a Shrewsbury Street restaurant which announced its closure in April 2020, has been sold to a family of Asian-cuisine connoisseurs, according to the Worcester South District Registry of Deeds.

Son Vo, Tram Vo, Cynthia Tsang, and Hannah Vo purchased the Worcester restaurant for $1.4 million in a deal closing Nov. 26. The four are siblings who own and manage four restaurants in Central Massachusetts.

Son Vo, who was named one of WBJ’s small business leaders of the year in 2019, owns Pho Sure in Shrewsbury, Kaizen Sushi Bar & Grill in Sturbridge, and Chashu Raman + Izakaya in Worcester.

Kaizen Sushi Bar in Sturbridge was Vo’s first endeavor in 2007, which he opened with his sister Cynthia. One of his other sisters, Tram, manages Pho Sure.

The owners could not be reached for immediate comment Thursday morning.

The siblings, whose mother immigrated from Vietnam, bought the property from Richard Cravedi, owner of the Wexford House.

The Wexford House closed temporarily during the first COVID-19 shutdown and, a month later, announced on its Facebook page it would not reopen. The owners told the Telegram & Gazette they had decided to retire, a choice which was accelerated by the pandemic.

Cravedi has owned the building at 501 Shrewsbury St. since 1988, according to the Worcester city assessors’ data. At 5,400 square feet, the property is assessed by the City of Worcester at $451,700.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story stated Son Vo owned Reign Cafe in Worcester's DCU Center. Reign is no longer open and the space is now occupied by Glazy Susan.
