As many long time York residents will remember, Anthony’s Food Shop, our pizza shop, was created on the site of the Berry Hill Farm Stand back in 1989.
The true pioneers of the store were Anthony and Marilyn Graziano. Early on, Marilyn would make her homemade lasagna and brownies from home and bring them to the store every week to sell. In the early years, Anthony worked as a corporate sales manager for General Mills, but his passion and heritage were in the retail food business.
Anthony's grandfather, father and uncle at their grocery store in East Boston circa 1913 can be seen in the Café.
Over the past 30 plus years, Anthony's has evolved into one of the most iconic pizza shop establishments on the seacoast. Housing a fully equipped kitchen that includes a state of the art Wood-Stone Fire-Deck pizza oven and a scratch bakery featuring the talents of several ultra-creative bakery artisans.
2014 brought a new venture. After pioneering the sale of micro roasted coffee in Southern Maine, we decided to “do it ourselves” and opened our café and coffee roasting facility while launching our new brand, “Anthony’s Small Batch Roasters". Drop in to order a latte from our friendly and creative staff of baristas while watching our talented Master Roaster, Eric Fernald, roast fresh beans to perfection!
Under the leadership of Anthony and Marilyn’s son, Mark Graziano, the family tradition continues. From brewing coffee at 5:00am, to making pizza, to managing a staff of over 60 people Mark’s famous quote is: "if we can’t do it right then we’re not going to do it at all”. We’re excited for what the future holds for Anthony’s Food Shop and Anthony’s Small Batch Roasting Co.
