PureBread was founded in 2001 by Mike Nardozzi, a native Delawarean, a proud Salesianum High graduate, and a passionate dog enthusiast. At PureBread, the philosophy is simple: Make It Better. That means having the most talented people create the highest-quality products at the most prime locations. With six fast-casual restaurants, PureBread aims to delight more than 15,000 guests per week with its team of 100 friendly associates.
On the PureBread menu, guests will explore delicious sandwich combinations on homemade bread, unique gourmet soups, the freshest seasonal salads, and jumbo muffins prepared from scratch daily. And every morning, PureBread patrons start their day with their choice of gourmet coffees and nourishing breakfast sandwiches. New customers quickly become regulars, thanks to PureBread’s attentive service and unforgettable food, savored in the cozy comfort of soulful music, customer dog art and photographs, and hilarious montages of canine videos.
To ensure elite product quality, PureBread controls the production of nearly everything that guests enjoy. Products are made, baked, and prepared daily by the PureBread Culinary Team, led by award-winning chef Jamie Nardozzi (founder Mike’s twin brother) at a state-of-the-art, 8,000-square-foot production facility and corporate training center, located in Wilmington.
As PureBread approaches its third decade in business, the local company remains true to its core values of excellence, quality, service, and community. The PureBread family believes that every day is an opportunity to help and serve others, be kind, self-improve, and make the world a better place. This PureBread principle can be seen all over the tri-state area and beyond on car bumpers displaying PureBread magnets. The magnets are available at all PureBread locations and remain free to anyone willing to spread the positive message. Since they debuted in 2014, the magnets have found their way to more than 200,000 vehicles across the country. The goodness movement is growing!
PureBread is extremely grateful for the support it has received over the years. As a local business, the family restaurant is proud to be homegrown and owes its success to its loyal and beloved customers. PureBread is looking forward to the next 18 years of Making It Better.
