Have you ever had that experience where an idea seems so far-fetched it starts as a joke…. But then that joke becomes a dream and finally – a reality? Today’s guest, Tony Scotto, a native of Naples Italy, immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager. His first job was in his uncle’s restaurant, where he learned English and began working up his way up the ranks in the restaurant world. Tony was still young when the idea of buying an existing restaurant, Towson Hot Bagels, with his siblings and cousin began as a joke. Not only did that joke turn into a reality, but Tony and his family have now grown to 6 locations. The stores are designed and built to reflect the piazzas of Southern Italy, where people gather with friends and family to enjoy food & share their stories, and their business philosophy honors the values of Tony’s grandfather, who owned an Italian deli in Naples. I really enjoyed this conversation where Tony shared so much insight and wisdom into the uniqueness of both Italian and American cultures, the ways he brings out the best in both, how to work with family, and building a thriving business that employs 150 people and thrived through the pandemic. There’s a lot of great stories, a lot of laughs, and a lot of wisdom in this interview and I’m excited that you get to hear from Tony right now!
