The NY Deli

So I finally went to get something to eat at the Gandolfo's Deli on Portsmouth Avenue. I had an excuse since I was going to write a business profile on them. It's nice inside with several tvs and they offer beer and wine for the evening crowd. I had an Italian, which came with ham, salami and pepperoni on a fresh baked roll. It was pretty tasty, though I spiced mine up a bit with the addition of some pepperoncini's, a good move.
The girl who owns the place, Jocelyn, is extremely friendly and personable and an Exeter High alum.
Here's the full story:

EXETER — The new Gandolfo's Deli on Portsmouth Avenue isn't just another sub shop.
"This is a sandwich shop," said co-owner Jocelyn Warren, 30, who owns the local shop with her father, Dick Warren. "You can get an authentic Reuben sandwich here, hot pastrami sandwiches, fresh deli salads."

In all, the deli offers 71 different specialty sandwiches, in addition to a build-your-own sandwich combination option. The deli has several televisions, a selection of bottled beer and wine, and cozy seats for patrons. "It's perfect for any gentleman that's out there that wants a sandwich, a beer and to watch a game," Warren said.
Warren has worked in the restaurant business locally at Paddy's American Grille, the Weathervane Seafood and others. She always wanted to start a business with her father, an environmental engineering consultant, but was looking for the right franchise in which to invest.
