One of my favorite things to write about is the opening of local stores and restaurants, especially after what the pandemic did to many business owners. For me, It's exciting to see passionate entrepreneurs bring something that they love to our Jersey Shore communities. If you plan to open a business or if your business is doing something unique like an event, or moving to a new location, send information to jim.guiliano@townsquaremedia.com - I would love to get the word out for you!

This is awesome...FOOD FOR A PAWPOSE!

Eating pizza, great! Eating pizza and supporting local animal shelters, EVEN BETTER! Earlier this year, Rocco's Pizza opened on Main Street in Bradley Beach. Not only does Rocco's Pizza host Italian favorites created by an award-winning chef, but they only serve customers flavorful food crafted with high-quality ingredients. The deals are great and the more they serve the more they help! Rocco's Pizza donates part of its profits to local animal shelters in the name of the owner's first family rescue dog, Rocco.

Monica Cione is also the owner of Cione Gelato in Cape May, New Jersey. On the Rocco's Pizza website, she says:

Rocco was the name of my first dog. Also the name of our family dog in this moment. They are both rescues. We are a family that is dog and animal lovers in general. I always tried to help any animal in distress since I was little. I wanted to do more and more because they have no voice. So here we are. The Pizza place will help shelters and families that are willing to adopt animals and businesses that want to help pets. Part of our profit will be used to help the ones in need and also support those who are willing to add new fur members to their family. The more we sell the more we help. We are going to donate part of the income to help the best friend any human being can dream of having as a pet.

THE BIG NEWS...They will add a 2nd location on Broad Street in Keyport. No specific opening date has been announced yet but they are currently hiring. Call Dave at 732-556-1196! They should be opening before the new year. Follow Rocco's Pizza on Facebook or click their website HERE.
