Giovanni and Sandy Sanzone have some fresh ideas for their new acquisition, Avalon Coffee in Rio Grande.
The popular business, created by Sean Ford and Mike Nestor, will now offer homemade bread along with a variety of menu additions. A major remodel of the shop is planned to get underway after this summer.
The Sanzones grew up working in a family-owned pizzeria business, then started and owned Little Italy Restaurant in Wildwood Crest for 20 years. They sold Little Italy in 2016, moving on to their latest venture.
