started in the pizza business at the urging of his
cousin, John Arena. John was 12, Sam
was 11. John invited Sam to help him work
in the family business...
Uncle Rocky wanted to
know why Sam was in the pizzeria. John
said..."This is Sammy.."
"I didn't hire him, you did" said Uncle Rocky.
"You pay him".
John ended up splitting his wages
with Sam... John was making 50 cents an
hour. He gave Sam half...They worked in the
family pizzeria for 25 cents an hour....
This is the true story of how Sam
and John formed a pizza partnership over 44 years ago,
that has lasted to this day.
And that partnership is alive at Metro Pizza in Las
Vegas. Stop by and tell them Pizza Therapy sent you...
