In 1981, a year after their marriage, Antoinette and Vincent found themselves new business owners. The business was a small pizza and sandwich shop, Brothers Pizza, at 4306 Woodland Avenue.
Twenty years before, Antoinette and Vincent were growing up in families of fine food and hard work. Vincent traces his origins to a European nation known for its delicious cuisine, and Antoinette's childhood was spent in the family's gourmet delicatessen. When the two food lovers came together, full of experience and creativity, they created twenty more years of love, achievement, and good Italian food.
After their initial investment, the couple saw 5 years of growth and had two children, Lia and Joseph, before their next step- an expansion to a second store in the shopping center, 4308 Woodland Avenue. In 1991, a liquor license was acquired and a third store came, 4304 Woodland Avenue. With the first ten years under their belt, Antoinette and Vincent enjoyed success with a growing happy family and a 3-store restaurant.
