Fazio's was begun in 1968, selling pizza, hoagies and other Italian foods. We had a large and loyal eat in and take out business. In 1974 one of our Principal and closest supplier retired from business, and we realized that there was a need for a specialty store that sold deli meats, cheeses, imported oils, pastas, and sauces. We split our store in half, one side doing pizzas, hoagies and other Italian foods. On the other side we sold all the ingredients for people to make this food at home.
