- - Summary of audio segment: In 1973 this business was for sale. Owners were an Italian couple, but didn't have much stock. Had counter, coffee machine, few candies in the back. Luigi Cornetta, now in business in Hackensack. LC sold business because had idea to live in Florida, but didn't work out, so came back and opened shop in Hackensack. RV wanted to make things work well, stock the right things, make good coffee. Even when serving a soda, do that well, be polite. And that stimulates customers to come back. And this business is a gathering place at times. Sometimes it's annoying, but sometimes it's interesting because discuss current events, etc.
