Brother's Pizza Owner Decides Shop's Fate
Will the longtime pizza place stay or go?
Brother’s Pizza, as we all know it, is gone.
But don’t fear! The owners and recipe aren’t changing, just the name and phone number. That's not so bad, right?
As of Jan. 1, 2013, Brother’s Pizza will change its name to Tony’s Pizza.
“But we’re having the same food and the same customer relations we’ve always had,” said Tony Scotto, co-owner of the longtime pizza place.
Nick Scotto, Tony’s cousin-in-law, started Brother’s in 1978. About 12 years ago, Nick brought on Tony as a co-owner.
Earlier this year, Nick wanted Brother’s to move to the Shoppes but Tony wasn’t interested. Nick decided to open his own place—Nick’s Pizza and Pasta—and just recently, he and Tony came to an agreement and parted ways.
Both locations will remain open and Tony has high hopes for Brother’s. He told Cinnaminson Patch this week he hopes the new go-kart facility would help him with business.
“I’m already talking to them,” Tony said.
Nick told Cinnaminson Patch last month there is plenty of business in town for both restaurants; Tony agrees.
“It’s a good thing—for myself and I hope for Nick’s Pizza and Pasta,” Tony said. “He’s going to do OK down there and I’m going to be able to do OK up here.”
Starting Jan. 1, the new phone number for Tony’s Pizza will be 856-829-5474.
In Nick’s Pizza and Pasta news, the “Cheesesteak Lady,” is now working at there.
