Last week we were moved by the great Dr. Martin Luther King to focus on what we loved about the West Chester Community as a whole. For our 2nd part of this blog series, we want to highlight the businesses right next door to us at Reserve!
This January marks the one year anniversary for Pica's in West Goshen!
So why did this Delaware County staple decide to make their 2nd home in West Goshen? We are about to find out!
Lori Rosario who is part of the third-generation family, along with her siblings Angela, Karen and Frank III, are operating the business along with their parents, Camille and Frank Jr.
Frank Pica Sr. opened the business in 1941 with a pizzeria in West Philadelphia. In 1956, Frank Sr. and his son Frank Jr. moved to 7803 West Chester Pike in Upper Darby. They expanded into a full-service restaurant.
Rosario said the new location was prompted by the generations of families who have visited their Upper Darby location and who have moved out to the West Chester area.
“We were excited and humbled that everyone was so excited for Pica’s of West Chester to open,” Rosario said. "A lot of our customers moved up that way," said Frank Pica. "And it's a growing area."
We couldn't agree with you more and are so happy to have such wonderful neighbors and contribute to the growth of West Goshen!
