The Patrone Family
Our recipe's are a family tradition; our community impact is our legacy.
It all began in the summer of 1993 when John, Vinny and Gene
opened up the Sugar Shack in Breezy Pt., NY. They success-
fully operated the Sugar Shack for a number of years until the
Patrone's moved to Apex, NC in 1996. It was there in Apex
that the Patrone's decided to embark on their next adventure.
In the winter of 1999, the Patrone family decided to open up
Patronies Pizza in Apex, the same winter that Apex saw 24
inches of snow overnight closing schools for two weeks. With
all the restaurants closed and the power and the utility companies
working around the clock Patronies Pizza was there making Pizzas
by candle light and gas fired ovens. From then on Patronies became
seeded in the community. Longing to once again live on the coast,
the Patrone Family sold the business and moved to Holden Beach,
NC in the Spring of 2007. It wasn't long after in 2008 that the
Patrone's began searching for the location of their next restaurant
adventure. They found a 130+ year old building and began
renovations in December 2008. They worked on getting the
building up to par for months until opening day in August 2009.
Due to the awesome popularity of Patronies, in 2011 the
restaurant was expanded to double the dining space and double
the parking space. As 2015 rolled around, Patronies expanded again
to increase kitchen and storage space to keep up with demand.
With 2017 brought a movie production called "8 Slices" and
Patronies made it onto the big screen. See you in Hollywood?!!
We hope you enjoy your visit and as always, we look forward
to seeing you again soon!
