Samuel Mancino's Italian Eatery

About Samuel Mancino's Italian Eatery

In the late 1950s my parents, Samuel and Marion Mancino Sr. established Sammy's Pizzeria in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. My father worked in the family restaurants for many years. In the early 1980s, my wife, Michele Mancino and I opened our first restaurant in Three Rivers, Michigan.

In 1990 I was the proud owner of two Mancino’s restaurants. These were Mom and Pop concepts that I developed myself. I was frequently asked how somone could own and operate their own Mancino’s restaurant.

In 1991 I met with an attorney about how I could start selling the Mancino's Italian Eatery name and let people share in my dream without owning the restaurant myself. My attorney recommended this could be done through franchising.

From 1991 until 1993 I built on my dream of franchising my restaurant name and families concept until finally, in February of 1994 my first franchise was up and running. My staff consisted of myself and my one working partner. We did everything from building the stores to marketing.
