Open to Investors
Potito started working in pizzerias and a local doughnut shop in NYC at a young age. It's where he discovered his passion for food.
- He opened his first pizzeria in 1983 in Landover Mall in Landover, MD
- In 1990, he opened Tizio's Brick Oven in Lake Harbour, MD
- After this, Potito opened Benito's Brick Oven in North Myrtle Beach
- He soon opened another location on Broadway at the Beach
- In early 2000, Potito opened a location in Mt Pleasant Town Center
- In 2010 he sold all Benito's Brick Oven Locations in South Carolina and moved back to Maryland
- There he opened a pizzeria in Rockville MD, and Largo, MD
- After building, running, and operating them for the first 2 years, he decided to go back to South Carolina and open Vito's Pizzeria in Greer, SC
- 7 years later Potito went back to North Myrtle Beach, opening Rapone Italian Kitchen where he is still the current owner
Potito's background and recipes are direct reflections of Old World Italian cooking, most of which were taught to him by his mother, Sabatina. His mother owned an Italian Market for over 50 years in the town where he was born. That’s where he adopted the home-style feel, and love for doing things the right way, the old school way.
