In the early 1940's, my great-grandparents, Anna and Guiseppe Figaretti and their five sons, Chi Chi, Jack, Mike, Tony and Joe began packaging and selling their sauce to local grocery stores. The sauce was so popular that the brothers decided to open a restaurant. In 1949, Figaretti Brothers Italian Restaurant opened in Wheeling, West Virginia. The restaurant (now located off I-70 at exit 2B) has remained in our family for more than 50 years.
Figaretti's sauce is more popular today than it was in the 1940's. Jars of Figaretti's sauce have found their way onto the shelves of produce, gourmet, and specialty shops in West Virginia and Ohio. And, just like the early days, I still sell my great-grandmother's sauce to all of the local grocery stores.
