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.

Will Cinnaminson finally allow them to put a big "Tony's Pizza" sign on the building itself???? Most out-of-towners have NO idea it even exists.

I doubt it. You'd probably get Minniti complaining that its not proper signage and issuing them a citation for it

Good luck Tony!!

Oh yea but Cinnaminson is business friendly....thats what the mayor says ha ha ha...I really do not think so, with all the empty business's we have on 130, guess we will just buy them all up and say its assessed at a higher value.......

Good luck Tony, your pizza is still the best around !!!!

Changed the phone number in my cell phone. We are big time fans of Brothers and since we live and own 2 businesses at the north end of the township we will continue to go to the now called Tony's. Best pizza, don't change your recipes.

Glad to hear the news. I have been going to brother's since they opened in 1978 and were on the back side of the Clover mall with the back entrance. Best pizza around. I have 5 siblings who all grew up on Brothers and when they come to town this is one of the first places they go. Good luck to both Tony and Nick and may their businesses prosper in 2013.

YAY!...NOw we can relax and enjoy more of the best!

Glad to hear both businesses will be staying open, and I agree - there is definitely room for both in the town! Been patronizing Brother's since it opened and will continue to do so. Haven't been to Nick's yet, but planning on it. Good luck to all!!

Remember—the number doesn't change until the first of the year.

who cares what the name is... as long as I can still go and get my pizza fix ;) Been hooked on it since they were in the back of the mini-mall !! We use to cut school and sports and ride our bikes up there for the best pizza in town. 25 years later still craving the sounds of "slice!"...

Anyone else feel the women at brothers pizza look pissed to even serve you or ring you up? I have never gotten a thank you from them. Reminds me of Mrs Hiller from hillers meats!
Mike December 24, 2012 at 12:50 AM
LOl, I thought she hated me for years
Mike December 24, 2012 at 01:34 AM
Yeah remember when they were in the back of the mini mall with Gold Medal Sporting Goods
T Rovson December 24, 2012 at 01:53 PM
Seriously, I don't know them personally, but they were/are the two rudest women I have ever met. I remember my father refused To go in hillers because she never said thank you when you paid. I now do the same at brothers pizza.
Meghan December 24, 2012 at 11:54 PM
T rovson, I agree with you 100%. My patronage at Brothers has seriously declined over the years until I stopped all together because one of them hung up the phone before I finished my order. Went to Nick's though without realizing it was part of Brother's and the food is wonderful and the staff is super friendly and always wish me a good day! But good luck to everyone!
