About Marino’s of Mullica Hill
In the winter of ’72 two brothers from South Philly, Joseph and Dominic Marino opened a corner pizzeria in Runnemede, New Jersey. The flour salesman and the high school teacher had no prior food industry experience. They learned as they went but turned to their mother Carmela for recipes that became the foundation of this South Jersey landmark. From the beginning they had two guiding principles: use the best ingredients and treat their customers like family. A lot has changed over the years but what is important has remained the same.
We are happy to announce the opening of our new store in the historic town of Mullica Hill, NJ. This new location will keep the traditions that people have come to expect but with creative, authentic panini, well crafted salads and soups as well as an espresso bar.
