Kenny Grant opened his first Gino's Pizza 50 years ago in a tiny storefront not far from this busy store on 9th Avenue in Huntington. The original store is gone, but more than 70 others stand in the tri-state area.
Kenny Grant welcomes a table of friends and longtime customers who stopped by Gino's for lunch last week.
