Our Story

In the 1950’s Jimmy met Diane on 81st Street & 14th Ave in Brooklyn, NY. They married and had two daughters, Connie & Rita. Our family moved to Florida in 1973 where my sister & I met two brothers from the Bronx. Soon Connie married Anthony and a year later Rita married Sal….and our family grew.

Growing up in a big Italian family traditions were very important to our dad. He loved his family very much and adored moms cooking. Every Sunday he woke up to the aroma of her cooking "Gravy" (yes we're from Brooklyn that's what we call it) and we all gathered for dinner. We were always together for holidays, celebrations and parties, and mom always did the cooking.

It is with great pride that these family recipes have been handed down to us. So in honor of our dad, Jimmy C’s Italian Deli & Market was born.
