Mario and his father Al DiManno moved out to California in 1986 to start the first Cenario’s. Al was a Burger King franchise in Michigan with seven stores prior to his new venture in the pizza business in California.
Mario worked for his Dad in the Burger King restaurants while attending school back in Michigan and was the first one to California in January 1986. He admired how his Father put together a great team of employees that worked in all the Burger Kings he owned and this inspired him to continue in the food industry with his Dad as a family business. Although his Father passed away in 2016, he still treats his partners and employees as family. He hopes the tradition carries on for another 30 years.
