Why is Sam's Pizza Palace so successful? Is it the Pizza dough, the sauce, the cheese… is it the location or the family atmosphere? Is it the familiarity of seeing the same faces year in and year out? There is not a day I have gone into Sam's without seeing Mr. Spera keeping a keen eye on the business, Tony and Manuel making the pies, Stephen at the grill along with Anthony (Z) running the operation. How many times prior to the Fire would you see Roe or Rita run up from the hotel's front desk to grab a slice or say hello to someone who would walk by. Or is it the fact that they have the ability to hire a group of hard working kids that seem to enjoy going to work and return to Sam's year after year as they finish High School, move on to College and beyond. And today we see a 3rd generation of the Spera Family members as Sal, Toni and Dante have all taken on roles in the family business.
