There are very few businesses that have lasted for 50 years and Marcellina’s is one of them.
Starting from their first location in Hindley Street, it has now blossomed into a 12 store franchise with plans to expand interstate.
Marcellina’s has been open since 1967 but it was in 1973 that Brian Aoukar took over as owner. He says “back in 1967 when Marcellina first opened the Marcellina special 9″ pizza sold for 80 cents.”
And today, Monday June 5, Marcellina’s selling their pizzas for 80 cents between 11am and 4pm.
And what came out was something pretty special – that I created with all the beautiful ingredients Marcellina’s supplied.
