Delizioso! Senator Murphy Serves Iconic Italian Deli NY State Business Of The Month Award For August

Mahopac, NY - It's been said that the Bucci brothers, Michael and Thomas, were "born to slice." Ask their father and partner, John, and he'll say the brothers were "bread" to run the finest authentic Italian delicatessen and buffet catering service in the Hudson Valley.
Bucci Brothers Deli in Mahopac has been satisfying discerning palates in the Hudson Valley for over 30 years, and the family legacy stretches back to the 1920's. In recognition of Bucci Brothers Deli's four-star food, quality customer service, and economic impact in the community, Senator Terrence Murphy recently presented John and Thomas Bucci with the New York State Senate Empire Business Award for August 2018.
"We're here today to recognize Bucci Brothers for your their outstanding service and dedication to the Mahopac's prosperity," said Senator Murphy. "There have been four generations of Bucci's that have helped make this business the prosperous entity it is today. Recognition for your accomplishments has been a long time coming and is well deserved. You've left an indelible - and delicious - mark on the community."
Thomas Bucci said, "Between our father, John, mother Nancy, their aunts and uncles, Mike's wife Laurie, Mike's friends and my friends, this place means more than just providing the best services and foods that you can get in the market today. It stands for hard work, dreams, communication, love for each other and love for what you do."
With John's guidance, Michael and Thomas have designed and created a new age yet old- fashioned authentic Italian delicatessen reminiscent of the best Bronx bistros. As kids, the brothers worked with their dad after school, in the summertime, and during spring and winter breaks. As they got older, the brothers started to branch out in other directions. Michael was a financial advisor for 7 years, and Tommy found his muse in music, carving out a successful career as a guitar player. But blood and bologna are thicker than water, and the brothers eventually returned to pursue their culinary calling.
Bucci Brothers Deli may be steeped in family tradition but is also a friendly local deli where everyone is treated like family, as evidenced by the staff's eloquent and appropriate titles, which include "Mr. Mozzarella" (John Bucci), "Chief Ham" (Michael Bucci), Il Presidente (Thomas Bucci), "Our Hero" (Sean Rizzotto), "The Tornado" (Nick Spinelli), "The Skipper" (Skip Marini), "The Destroyer" (Domenic Castiello), and "The Fuscala Bear" (Frank Fusca).
