According to a recent post from Chicago’s Food Chat, Morry’s Deli will be opening another location at 2227 W Taylor Street in the Tri-Taylor area.
“We plan to open the second location sometime soon, likely in February. The menu will be the same, but the inside will have a modern, fresh feel to it. We are looking forward to expanding our operations to the Illinois Medical District and hopefully more locations in the future,” owner and president, Sanjay Patel, told What Now Chicago.
According to the company website, “Morry’s Deli has been part of Hyde Park for over 50 years. In 1960 Morry Orman opened up his first location at 5500 S. Cornell. His store was so popular that people would like up out the door to taste his legendary deli sandwiches stacked high with the finest deli meats including their famous corned beef. Morry would go on to open twelve more locations in other areas of Chicago.”
“For a while, Morry employed his daughter Suze to help out in the deli. Now of CNBC fame, Suze Orman has gone on to become one of the most well-known in the country. She writes about her experiences at the deli in her book, Suze Orman’s Financial Guidebook-Put The 9 Steps to Work…” My brothers and I worked there every day after school. There was always a line out the door, and (after previous closed businesses) this time I knew my dad was going to make it.” The store became a hideout for her and many of her friends growing up and even through college.”
“Today, Morry’s Deli still serves up its legendary deli sandwiches to the neighborhood. Since 1960, Morry’s Deli has built an unparalleled reputation for serving the highest quality and delicious gourmet products. Long before the word “service” became fashionable, we were committed to customizing sandwiches to fit the specific desires of our customers. Our customers have come to expect first-class products, delivery, and service. We strive to meet all of our customers’ expectations.”
