Husband, Wife Entrepreneurs Bring Hot Concept to Philly

Washington, D.C., November 28, 2006— Dominic’s of New York®, the fastest growing grilled sandwich franchise in the United States, has signed a multi-unit development agreement with husband-wife duo Robert and Deborah LePera. Mr. and Mrs. LePera, both experienced entrepreneurs and owners of Acorn Food Services, will open a Dominic’s of New York® kiosk and restaurant at the Naval Inventory Control Point in Philadelphia, PA—both will open at the beginning of 2007.

“This is a natural progression in the market place to bring branded retail concepts such as Dominic’s of New York® into non-traditional space such as military bases,” adds Mrs. Lepera. “We are proud to be one of the first food service management companies to make that commitment.”

Acorn Food Services, a high quality food services provider out of Pennsylvania currently manages contracts in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Texas, Hawaii and has serviced clients such as the US Navy, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, General Services Administration, Federal Courts, AT&T, Lucent, Xerox, University Of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Philadelphia Job Corp.

Acorn has also won several awards such as the United States Air Force Hennessey Trophy, “Best of the Best in Multiple Facility Category,” United States Army Connelly Award For Excellence in Food Service, the USSBA Minority Entrepreneur of the Year and the NMBC Outstanding Minority Business award.

“The LePera’s have extensive knowledge in the food industry—Dominic’s of New York® is lucky to have them on board as our newest franchisees and looking forward to working with them more in the future,” said Dominic’s of New York® President, John Felico.

About Dominic’s of New York® 

Dominic’s of New York® was inspired by John Felico's grandfather who sold Italian candies and roasted peanuts out of a simple wooden vending cart over a hundred years ago. Today, the concept has blossomed into a chain specializing in items like Italian sausage, fajita chicken and mouth watering Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. With 50 units across the country, Dominic’s of New York® can be found in vending carts, kiosks and restaurants at big box retailers, athletic stadiums, military bases, shopping centers and food-courts.
