I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Two Chicago-based restaurants coming to Main Street

Nancy's Pizza, a Chicago-based pizza parlor known for its stuffed pan pizza, will open on Main Street in late May or early June.

The menu will be the same as the Chicago pizza parlors, offering both stuffed pan and thin crust pizzas, fettucine alfredo, meatball sandwiches, and wings.

Nancy's Pizza owner Rocco Palese opened his first pizza parlor in 1969, 18 months after moving from Turin, Italy, according to the eatery's website. Palese used his family's recipe for an Easter specialty cake to create pan pizza, and has since garnered awards from Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune, and Pizza Today. He has sold franchise rights and opened stores in Illinois, Georgia, Indiana, and now in Alhambra.

California-based Procal Investment and Management LLC owns the Alhambra franchise. According to purchasing manager Nikki Wang, staff visited Nancy's Pizza in Chicago and saw that there was a market for pan pizza on the West Coast.

"While our company owns other pizza franchises in California, we noticed that not many places here serve pan pizza," Wang said. "We chose Alhambra because it's close to South Pasadena, San Marino, and other surrounding cities."

Procal also franchised the restaurant next door, Al's Beef, which claims to be "Chicago's #1 Italian beef." This will be the second California location for the chain, which serves sausages, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and of course, beef. The restaurant will open at the same time as Nancy's Pizza.

Nancy's Pizza and Al's Beef are located at 480 W. Main Street, Alhambra, Calif., 91801.
