Mancino’s Grinders: The Perfect Blend of Heritage and Taste

The term “Grinder” can be traced back to the Bast 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 cheeses, and were then jaked and garnished with lettuce and tomato. These super-sized sandwiches were a favorite of the hard working men who ground off rivets on metal warships. The friendly shop owners referred to these men as grinders, and the ever popular sandwiches also came to be known as Grinders.

Mancino’s Grinders and Pizza Shops were established in the late 1930’s by Samuel Mancino Sr., near St. Clair Shores, Michigan. The original recipes and good customer relations were the hallmark of Sam Mancino’s success, and those concepts are still prevalent today in all Mancino’s shops.

The Mancino’s Team insists on providing products which are high in quality, generous in portion and superior in freshness.

We will never compromise our quality for gimmick or profit.
