The Bucci Brothers' Mission Statement
The Bucci Brothers' Story
Since they were kids, Tommy & Michael worked with their dad, John, whenever they could...washing floors, cleaning pots and pans, stocking sodas and milk, eating candy and breaking chops. The time came when they were older to take on more responsibility and eventually began working behind the counter, with customers and employees on a regular basis. Mike and Tom worked both after school, and summer breaks...winter breaks and spring breaks for their dad, whenever the business needed help.
As they got a little older, as we all do, we started to go in different directions: Mike became a financial advisor for 7 years, and Tommy was on his way to a successful career in music as a fantastic guitar player. As time moved on, whenever they got the chance to, they'd be in the kitchen cooking something up and trying to be the "family cook". Tommy always won. Mike would just sit there and eat whatever Tommy made, he didn't mind losing.
As Michael puts it: Legend has it that one magical night of wine drinking turned into this new business. As we talked and dreamed about a new venture, over 2 dozen locations failed to come to fruition...leases's in Somers, Pleasantville, Mount Kisco, Briarcliffe, Katonah, White Plains, The Bronx, Yonkers & Poughkeepsie, Fishkill were all missing one thing or more. It seemed as though our dream of a "good location" was going to end before it began. Then we were approached about a vacancy in Mahopac on the OTHER side of Mahopac from where we were before. As to not compete with any businesses from where we were over 3 years before, we agreed it was far enough that we'd have "our own following", our own business.
Between our father John, mother Nancy, their aunts and uncles, Mike's wife Laurie, Mike's friends & all of Tommy's friends, this place has become something that means more than what we bargained for. It stands for hard work, dreams, communication, love for each other and love for what you do. We were "Born to Slice"
Thank you and see you at the deli
