It was originally established in 1950 at 3114N. Sheffield by my father Nick Pianetto Sr. My name is Nick, my son’s name is Nick, my nephew’s name is Nick, My grandson’s name is Nick, my nephew’s son’s name is Nick, and my dog’s name is Nikko.

Then who is Pat? Many people, thought that Nick Senior’s name really was Pat. Even his wife didn’t know until he signed their marriage certificate. She said, “Nick.. who is that? I thought your name was Pat!” Ninety years ago my father grew up next door to an Irish family. The family had a son that my father played with, and another son that they had lost, Patty was his name. The mother started calling my father Pat and the name has stuck with him ever since.
