Michigan Soup Lady® Brings Concept to Reality

Lori Maceri decided to follow her heart developing a concept including both hot and cold comfort foods prepared with nostalgic goodness.

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Maceri's Soup & Scoop®, Pitas & Subs, an eatery in Shelby Township, takes comfort to extreme.

Finally, the image is clear. She always had a vision of what she would like to accomplish. Growing up living with her Grandma gave her the desire and knowledge to make that dream a reality. Her Grandma helped her mother Angelina in her restaurant, catered, and made cakes. She was her biggest inspiration. She instilled cooking and baking in her all of her life. She wanted to create something that brought those times back."

Her husband, Anthony, a produce industry veteran for nearly fifty years in Detroit's Eastern Market, gave her increased knowledge and resources to complete her idea.

Anthony learned the ropes from his father, Sam Maceri, known in Detroit as "King of Freshness." Having this experience, he certainly knows how to pick the best produce. "That's a critical job since so much of what we do depends on it," says Lori. Her ambition was to have a restaurant that served items made from scratch and family traditions.

Famous among friends and family for her soups, Lori says she wanted to bring that homemade touch to the business and provide a different option for Metro Detroit in a comfortable restaurant setting. Having over 70 years combined experience in the wholesale and retail foodservice industry; they realized the demand for really good soup and the qualities it brings out-comfort, warmth, and well being.

Nestled in the center of town, Soup & Scoop®, although cozy, extends itself beyond its doors providing food for parties, events, meetings, and offers delivery. She thought, people need more of a choice if they cannot leave their office for lunch. Offering delivery with a choice of more than just sandwiches provides the conveniences of  a wide selection of hot or cold sandwiches, soups, salads, and ice cream.

Their menu centers around her soups made from scratch, sandwiches, and ice cream. Soups being her forte, she loves the creativity that goes into each recipe. Most people would never think of combining soup and ice cream into one eatery, but Lori says that's part of what makes her restaurant unique.

Her aspiration is to offer products that give customers a reminiscence of grandma's house. Thanks to the family ties, customers are guaranteed the best products made with the finest produce available from across the country and around the world.

Maceri's Soup & Scoop is located on the northwest corner of 21 Mile and Hayes in Shelby Township, Michigan.
