The History of Nardelli's Grinder Shoppe... Page 2
When Fred, the youngest and last survivor of the brothers, passed away in 1963, a nephew, Joe Nardelli, took over the business. Joe had arrived from Italy in1955, not long after the flood, caused by hurricane Carol, had severely damaged much of Naugatuck Valley.
Joe worked for his uncles until 1963, when he purchased and continued to manage the original South Main Street location until it's demolition in 1978. Joe and his wife Rina continued the business at several locations in the Greater Waterbury area until settling in Naugatuck in the late 70's.
