Holy Cow!My first job in HS was at a Gino's in Edison NJ. I eventually moved up to become an assistant mgr at the Westside and Culver store in JC. That was around 1982-1983. Many fond memories of that store! Had a great crew!I was working the night the Hess tanks blew up in Newark Bay. Blew out half the windows in the restaurant. It was after closing, but I stayed all night to 'guard' the store. Nobody looted Gino's, but they looted the dry-cleaners next door and the supermarket across the street. Too bad for them, they missed out on getting some great food!By 1983 Gino's had already been bought by Marriott. It's a shame what happened. Gino's was an excellent company to work for. They treated their people great.We may never see the likes of them again, nor the great food.Too bad some good things have to end, because of corporate politics and greed for money. Both were Gino's end.
