“We wanted to bring something new to the community. Cicero gave us a lot and we wanted to give a little bit back to the town,” said Reynaldo Mora. He also explained how helpful the business licence department was throughout the entire process.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“It is a friendly environment for families, kids are welcomed, any private events you would like to host you can host here, we do private catering as well,” said Jacqueline Mora Rigoberto Mora’s wife.

Right before the ribbon cutting Chef John Torres said, “We are still in our infancy, but we have a lot of aspirations. Please come visit.” Chef Torres has been a chef for over 40 years.

“On behalf of Town President Larry Dominick and my colleagues on the Town Board we want to welcome you and wish you the best,” said Town Assessor Emo Cundari.

“Thank you for choosing Cicero. We wish you a lot of luck,” said Town Clerk Maria Punzo-Arias.

Happiness and applause took over once the red ribbon was finally cut.

“Come by! Check us out!” said Rigoberto Mora with a smile.

Attending the event were Clerk Maria Punzo-Arias, Trustees Victor Garcia, John Cava, and Bob Porod, Assessor Emilio Cundari and Collector Fran Reitz along with officials from the Town’s departments including Senior Center Director Diana Dominick, Business License Director Ismael Vargas and Building Commissioner Tom Tomschin.

Cicero celebra otra ceremonia de inauguración y corte de cinta organizada por la Cámara de Comercio de Cicero.

Nonno Di Mora Ristorante quedó oficialmente inaugurado el martes 10 de Marzo a las 12 p.m. La celebración tuvo lugar justo frente al restaurante ubicado en el 5612 W. 35th Street.

Nonno Di Mora significa abuelo difunto.

Los dueños, Reynaldo y Rigoberto Mora, fueron criados y educados en Cicero. Ambos asistieron a las Escuelas Públicas de Cicero y son orgullosos graduados de la Secundaria Morton East. La pasión de los hermanos Mora de convertirse en dueños de negocios, comenzó cuando eran jóvenes trabajando en el restaurante propiedad del padrino de Reynaldo Mora.

“Queríamos aportar algo nuevo a la comunidad. Cicero nos dió mucho y queríamos devolverle un poco a este pueblo,” dijo Reynaldo Mora. También explicó lo útil que fue la ayuda del ‘Departamento de Licencias Comerciales’ durante todo el proceso.

El restaurante sirve desayuno, almuerzo y cena.

“Es un ambiente agradable y acogedor para todas las familias, los niños son bienvenidos, cualquier evento privado que quisiera organizar puede organizarlo aquí, también hacemos catering privado,” dijo Jacqueline Mora, esposa de Rigoberto Mora.

Justo antes del corte de cinta, el chef John Torres dijo: “Todavía estamos en nuestra infancia pero tenemos muchas aspiraciones. Por favor vengan a visitarnos.” El chef Torres ha sido chef por más de 40 años.

“En nombre del Presidente Larry Dominick y de mis colegas en la Junta de Síndicos queremos darles la bienvenida y desearles lo mejor,” dijo el Asesor Municipal Emo Cundari.
“Gracias por elegir Cicero. Les deseamos mucha suerte,” dijo por su parte la Secretaria Municipal María Punzo-Arias.
Hubo felicidad y se escucharon los aplausos cuando finalmente se cortó la cinta roja.

“!Vengan! !Visitenos!” dijo Rigoberto Mora con una sonrisa.
