“I opened May ten, nineteen ninety-three. Before this place opened I was a welder. It’s been an extremely excellent experience. It’s been a great experience building friendships, having the support of the neighbourhood and the customers for all these years. I wouldn’t change it for anything. I always said, ‘you treat the people as you want to be treated. Never forget where you started from.’ That’s been how I run my business, my friendships, my life.

What I love about this neighbourhood is the feeling of a small community. You don’t feel like your in a major metropolitan, you know? It’s a great place. Very, very homey. You don’t feel like anybody is chasing after you.” Joe Lecce, Owner, Peppino Gourmet Foods.
