15 Years ago Nick Capone was a high school student looking for his first job to make some extra cash. Across the street from where he grew up in North Branford was a small pizzeria called Annex Apizza House. With Nicks love for italian food and pizza he decided to apply for a job. Shortly after, he was hired to wash dishes and prep food . While all his friends were out on Friday and Saturday nights, Nick would always be hard at work, and because of this great work ethic, it eventully led him to oversee and learn how to make pizzas from some of the greatest old time Pizza makers of the New Haven county. At 20 years old and being such a fast learner, Nick was then running the entire pizzeria himself which gave him an Idea..To be a business owner himself. Then the dream began and at the young age of 23 years old, Capone's Pizzeria in Branford was born! Nick's family members would all love to help out which he then introduced his brother Mike to the restaurant business. Overtime they decided to become partners and with the great food and wonderful staff, the restaurant received great reviews year after year and was was claimed to be many local residents favorite pizzeria in Branford. Unfortunatly after 7 great years they had to sell the business for reasons beyond their control, and were then unsure about pursuing other things, or possibly switching locations. After a short layoff, the decision was made to open the doors back up at Capone's! During the layoff Nick decided to learn the bar business as well which has led him to incorporate an all new full liquor bar along with some of the greatest pizza you will ever have. The Capone's are looking foward to seeing all their returning customers along with meeting and serving a whole new customer base in their new venture.
