A’pizza Fact #3
Domenic Zuppardi started his own bakery and pizza business with his brother-in-law Andrew Esposito in 1931 in New Haven, it was called Salerno Baking Co. Tree years later in 1934, Domenic bought a failing bakery and house at 175 Union Avenue in West Haven. He and his family lived in the house and his new bakery and pizza business’ name was changed to Salerno’s Sanitary Bakery where he sold bread and pizza. In 1947, Domenic suffered a stroke and his oldest son Tony took over the family business after returning from WWII. When Tony took over the business he changed the name to Zuppardi’s Apizza.
