Fricano’s Pizza History

Cosimo (Gus) Fricano was the third child born to Antonino and Philipena Fricano, immigrants from Palermo (Bagheria), Sicily. After many years of toiling in the mud of the celery fields for his father’s cousin, Carlo Fricano, Gus and his younger brother Thomas enlisted into the Navy to serve their country in the Second World War.

Gus claimed if it wasn’t for the war he may never got out of those celery fields. Once the war was over the brothers came back to the civilian life in good old Grand Haven, Michigan. Tom went to work for the Gardner-Denver Tool Company and Gus became a bookkeeper for the Jolly Dairy Milk Company.

After about a year of working for the Jolly family, Gus knew he had to go into business for himself. Gus had an old saying (one of his many) "you never get rich working for someone else." Back then this was very true. He saw where the old Ottawa Tavern on the east-side of the city in amongst all the factories was for sale and asked his Uncle Curly (Cosimo) if he could borrow $2800 to buy it.

Uncle Curly reluctantly obliged, and on August 21, 1949 Gus bought the Ottawa Tavern and soon renamed it Fricano’s Tavern and from there, launched one of the most famous little success stories West Michigan has ever known.
