After fifteen years in the same location on Jackson Road, Mancino's Pizza & Grinders moved up the street and around the corner to a new space on Zeeb. It wasn't a quick move. "We were closed down for two or three months during the transition," says general manager Patrick McDevitt, whose family owns the business. "We weren't planning on moving, but the landlord raised the rent."
The new location, McDevitt says, is "better and bigger." They went from eighty seats to 126 and put in three TVs--the old location had none. The menu of pizzas, grinders, pasta, calzones, salads, and sandwich wraps will stay the same, but McDevitt says they're looking into applying for a liquor license in the near future.
McDevitt, forty-one, owns the business with his parents, Donald and Cathy McDevitt. "They're the big bosses," he jokes. The family also owns a Mancino's in Saline. McDevitt says Mancino's isn't a franchise--individual business owners license the name and concept from the Mancino family, which opened the first Mancino's in Coldwater. Today there are eighty Mancino's around the country, most of them in the Midwest.
