Mancinos Kennedy Drive Bradley

Mancino’s Pizza & Grinders owner Jeff Hersha works to fill an order at the Mancino’s location on Kennedy Drive in Bradley Thursday afternoon.

Sundays are typically one of the busiest days for the two Mancino’s Pizza & Grinders’ locations in Bradley.

But that fact didn’t stop owners Jeff and Angie Hersha from making one of their boldest business decisions since they opened Mancino’s at 1240 N. Kinzie Ave., Bradley, in November 1995, and their second location, 200 Kennedy Drive, Bradley, in December 1999.

It would be fair to say the couple has taken a leap of faith regarding their ability to operate profitable restaurants being open six days a week versus seven.
