Dinosaurs have become a big part of Frazier's Ornamental & Architectural Concrete in more ways than one.
Since the 1950s, Frazier's has sold architectural concrete and decorative ornaments. The business moved to the corner of U.S. 290 and Texas 6 in Hempstead in 2000 and made its dinosaur ornaments a prominent fixture.
Giant brontosauruses, velociraptors, and multiple tyrannosaurus can be seen outside on the business' 8 acres and within its giant facility. The dinosaurs, which cost anywhere from $100 for a small egg to $1,800 for a large velociraptor, are made from high-grade resin, owner Billy Frazier, 74, told Chron.com Tuesday.
A FAMILY BUSINESS: Frazier's Ornamental & Architectural Concrete a landmark
Around the release of "Jurassic World" in 2015, Frazier saw dinosaur sales jump 20 percent.
"The grandparents are our best customers, coming into shop for their grand kids," Frazier added. "We've been waiting for this movie to come out because of the excitement the kids have when they come in. We have a lot of adults that come in that are quite dedicated to the world of dinosaurs."
Aside from their dinosaur ornaments, Frazier's is perhaps best known for its architectural concrete that includes benches and bird baths.
"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" is due out in theaters June 22.
