Domenic's Cafe's 30-year anniversary down to 'lovely, loyal customers'
A family run cafe that serves Watford FC match goers every weekend is celebrating its 30th year of business.
Domenic's Cafe in Vicarage Road has been run by the Blasi family since 1983 and was first opened by the patriarch and matriarch of the family, Domenic and Nicky Blasi.
Mr Blasi junior, 33, of King Georges Avenue, said: "Our success is definitely due to having lovely, loyal customers who have been with us for years and years. It’s very much a family business and my sisters and I always helped out in the cafe at weekends when we were children.
Members of the family have always helped out in the cafe, and it is now managed by Mr Blasi senior’s son, Frank Blasi.
He added: "Now that we’ve got children of our own, I am the manager of the cafe and the grandchildren come and help out on Saturdays when it’s really busy because Watford is playing. We are very much Watford born and bred and we like to see Watford FC win."
"We have some customers who have been coming since we started in 1983. They have seen me and my sisters grow up and we have got to know them too. People who have been coming for years and years are not just customers, lots of them have become friends. I think we’re a bit of a hub in the community."
Mr Blasi junior said that although his father is technically retired, he still likes to keep an eye on things.
