Luigi Casapulla was an Italian immigrant with great vision and an even greater work ethic. Luigi and his wife Anna (Zampini) had nine children. In 1956, Luigi bought a small neighborhood grocery store in Elsmere, DE. Since Luigi was already working two jobs, he had his children help him at the store. About that same time, chain grocery stores were coming to Delaware and Luigi knew he would have to do something to compete. It was then he added subs and steaks. Through the years, all nine of their children and all twelve of their grandchildren have worked in the business. In fact, fifty years later three of their children (Andrew, Louie, & Jeanne), and seven of their grandchildren are still carrying on the proud tradition. Sadly, Anna died in 1957 and never saw the success of the business.
