Nardelli’s Grinder Shoppe was humbly established as a grocery store in 1922 by three Italian brothers who saw an opportunity for a new business venture in Waterbury, CT.  The original grinder - bread sandwich stuffed with meat, cheese - quickly became a staple in the surrounding area.  The franchise is and its old-school customer service, choices of over 30 different grinders, many hot and cold serving choices, and over 12 choice desserts. There the catering division  also caters from 10 to 1000 persons.

The brand has stayed family-owned and operated for three generations and currently has 15 locations throughout Connecticut.  Winning many prestigious awards, and just to name a few, the Greater Waterbury Chamber of Commerce “Small Business of the Year”, Connecticut Magazine Pollster “Best Grinder in State of CT 12 years running,” and featured as one of the “Best 7 Sandwich Shops in the Nation” on the Travel Channel Sandwich Paradise series.
