In 1947 Tom and Rita Clune created the first known non-hotel catering facility in the country. They successfully owned and operated their facility for 33 years until selling it to Albert Manzo Jr. who worked for them in the 1960s scrubbing pots. His dream of owning and operating one of the most popular catering venues in North Jersey is still realized today by his children.
