I was worried.

A giant supermarket had opened next door to my favourite sandwich bar.

That was six months ago.

This 20 year old family run business had served the best sandwiches I’d ever tasted. The legendary char-grilled chicken, pesto and roast vegetable ciabatta was to die for.

But their sandwiches and salads were as much as 50% more expensive than those of the neighbouring supermarket.

So what did Guiseppe and his sons Luca and Zenzo do?

They smiled as warmly as they ever did, served free samples to the people on their way to the supermarket, and kept their prices the same.

They didn’t seek to expand their product range, appeal to everyone or open longer hours.

They did just what they’ve always done: ignore the masses and touch each person’s taste buds and heart, one person at a time.

In the last six months profits have increased sharply and they’re looking to hire more staff.

Bellissimo boys…..bellissimo!
