About Us

Gershon's Deli was established in 1954 by Irv and Lena Gershon. They quickly outgrew their original storefront and in 1956, moved across the street to the present-day location.

Over the course of two decades, the Gershon's Deli name spread throughout the region, along with a thriving catering service. In 1973, Irv and Lena sold the business to their nephew Bob Lessner who, in turn, he sold it to "his adopted son and long-time employee Tony Lauria." For the next 23 years, Tony and his business partner Lou Gregory (who retired in 2009) built upon the long-standing reputation and traditions of the Gershon family.

Gershon's Deli & Catering, under Tony's continued leadership, as owner and operator, remains true to the mission of its founders... fresh food, freshly prepared daily and courteously served. Lena Gershon's original recipes still prevail and continue to delight customers - young and old -through the decades!
