Serving residents in Reading for over 70 years, Screpesi’s Sandwich Shop is a well known staple in the community thanks to their simple menu and loyal customers.
Screpesi’s was founded in 1949 by Joesph and Stella Screpesi when they opened their sandwich shop in Reading. Today, grandchildren Eddie Ostrowski and Patti Kissinger continue the tradition by proudly serving customers at two locations in Berks County, Reading and Knauers.
“We do things the Screpesi way” said Kissinger. “Our ham, everyone says it’s our secret, but it’s out, we put butter on the roll. People from out of town may think that odd, but we say ‘don’t knock it until you try it’. We also use real mayonnaise and freshly baked bread.”
The menu is small on purpose, offering Italian, Ham, Turkey and Tuna, along with hot options like steak and meatball. Each sandwich features a delicious Screpesi family recipe.
Screpesi’s has two locations in Berks County, at 500 Lancaster Avenue in Reading and 1365 Alleghenyville Road in Knauers.
