About Uncle Nick's
New York style bagels, subs and deli located in Lakeland, Florida.
So who is "Uncle Nick"?
Uncle Nick was the father of owner Nick Jr. and food business “mentor” of sorts to owner Ken DeBellis. Uncle Nick was the consummate family man, raising four children (Nick Jr., Dorene, Chris and Anthony) with Stephanie, his strong and influential wife of over 50 years. Born and raised in the Bronx, Uncle Nick began working in the food business at age 14 and owned his own deli in New York for 25 years. He was a hardworking, hands-on man who always gave his customers a great value and never compromised on the quality of his product.
Every morning at 4 am, he answered the bell and went to work. Along the way, he taught his family his unsurpassed work ethic and methods for success. As our endeavor continues to grow, so will the legacy of and our tribute to "Uncle Nick" DeBellis who touched the lives of many as he worked, conversed, and advised many from behind the counter.
