Father and son's life revolves around pizza

According to an article at suntimes.com, “For Chris (“Big Frankie”) Favero and his father, Nino, the likeness extends far beyond shared preferences for sausage pizza and the White Sox.”

“While his young friends were fishing and hunting with their fathers, Chris was learning how to chop onions and carrots, peel shrimp, grind sausage and make pizza crust — and he was scavenging through Dumpsters behind competing restaurants trying to determine purveyors of quality foods,” said the story. ” It meant I got to know my dad on a whole other level,” explains the 43-year-old Chris, a 20-year employee of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, Inc., and vice president of Frankie’s Fifth Floor Pizzeria, Frankie’s Scaloppine and Chicago Flat Sammies. Chris credits Nino, the 83-year-old patriarch of the Favero clan and founder/owner of Nino’s Pizza in Chicago Heights, Matteson and Alsip, with teaching him the fundamentals of making quality pizza, operating a restaurant, appreciating customers and enjoying life.”
