Our Story

In 1913 my great grandfather Frank Mandola moved his family to Houston and opened up his first grocery store. His sons got into the grocery business and opened their own, Mandola Brothers Grocery in 1948. And in 1975, my father Frank A. Mandola opened up Mandolas Deli. Needless to say, we have been a fixture in the Houston food scene for quite a long time.


Food enthusiast and golf aficionado. Joseph Mandola was born and bred in hospitality, and nothing brings him more satisfaction than serving up creative mouthwatering favorites. Whether it’s a long, slow cook or a last minute dinner concoction, you hardly find him away from the kitchen. 


Always possessing a passion for food, Kevin had left the industry for some time but couldn’t stay away.

Classically trained in French Cuisine, Kevin has worked in many kitchens and oversaw Food and Beverage Operations for several Country Clubs. Food has always been a way of life for his family.  Growing up cooking with his Father and Aunt he remembers talking about what was for dinner while eating lunch.  “Playing in the kitchen is what brings families together”  We just want to bring quality products to your home that can bring your family together as well.
