About Us

Mancino's Pizza & Grinders shops were established in the late 1930's in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. The original concept is still prevalent in all the Mancino's Shops today. The original recipes and good customer relations have never changed. The Mancino's team insists on providing products which are high in quality, generous in portions, and superior in freshness. We will never compromise our quality for any gimmick or profit.

Mancino's Italian Bread and Pizza Dough are both made from scratch every day (unlike others that bake frozen dough). Our baking process may cost a little more and take more time, but the end result of freshness and flavor make the real difference in all Mancino's Award Winning products.

History of the Grinder

The term "Grinder" can be traced back to the East Coast, where during World War I, Italian immigrants set up sandwich shops close to the shipyards. Their freshly baked Italian rolls were filled with generous amounts of meats and cheese, and were then baked and garnished with lettuce and tomato. These super-sized sandwiches were a favorite of the hard working men who ground off rivets on the metal warships. The friendly shop owners referred to these men as grinders, and the ever popular sandwiches also came to be known as GRINDERS.
