The legacy of Federici’s Family Restaurant began in 1921 when Frank and Ester Federici bought the Wolcott Hotel in downtown Freehold. They made the hotel their home and rented rooms to boarders. In 1932 when prohibition ended, they obtained their liquor license and expanded their business to include a bar and restaurant. In 1946, Ester brought her sons Frank and Dante, the next generation into the business. They worked to perfect the thin crust, brick-oven pizza that is the cornerstone of every restaurant with the Federici name. As the business continued to grow all of Frank and Dante’s children have worked in the family restaurant in Freehold. In 1983 the third generation began to expand the family business when Frank’s oldest daughter Margee and her husband Pat Hansen opened Federici’s South in Howell. In 1998 Frankie Federici and his wife MaryLynn continued the growth by opening Frankie Fed’s in Freehold. The tradition continues with the third
and fourth generation of the Federici family opening Federici’s on 10th. Owned by Michael and Nicole Federici, Scott and Nichole Hansen (Scott’s mother is Margee Federici-Hansen) and James and Brenda Wishbow. We will continue the tradition of providing the same quality food and service that has continued through four generations for more than 93 years. Thank you for letting our family serve your family!
