PRSRT STD US POSTAGE PAID PITTSBURGH, PA PERMIT NO. 887 11 Mayview Road, Canonsburg, PA 15317 1.800.558.0940, ext. 202 icmags.com A s you drive down East Lancaster Avenue, you come across one of the area’s most unusual landmarks, a large black bull which proudly stands in front of Our Deli in Paoli. Whether you’re walking in for the first time or the 50th, you’re received with the warm welcome that has defined this community treasure for almost 37 years. The Shanaughy and Lennen families know most of their customers by first name; they’ve seen them for breakfast before boarding the train into Philly or they’ve catered their office lunch. In some cases they’ve prepped their Boar’s Head meats or packed their beautiful hand-cut steaks to take home for dinner. No matter the interaction, the loyalty of Our Deli’s customers speaks volumes about the proprietors and the team. “People come back because of our commitment to quality and consistency,” says Bob Lennen, one of Our Deli’s original proprietors. “At the core we are a family-owned and operated business—we were started by the Shanaughy and Lennen families and we’ve been in the same spot since we opened. We’ve had lots of requests to expand to other areas, but we’ve never wanted to jeopardize the quality we’ve become known for.” Lennen and his original business partner Ed Shanaughy intimately understood food quality and service. Lennen began his career as a meat cutter and credits Shanaughy for getting the public interested in their growing business. Our Deli originally began as a meat business. The owners wanted to get more interaction with their customers, so they expanded the original butcher shop to include a deli, catering and restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as dine in or take out. Almost all of the food is made in-house and they serve Boar’s Head and certified Angus meats. “Customers love our deli sandwiches and rave about our cheesesteaks,” says the owners. “Our hoagies and corned beef sandwiches are among the most popular items. We also have great weekly specials like strip steak Saturday and meatloaf Thursday.” Customers who love Our Deli’s food also take advantage of the exceptional catering. “Just like our butcher shop and restaurant, customer satisfaction is our number-one priority in catering,” says the owners. “Customers can order from our extensive catering menu or work with us to develop a specialized menu—we can make almost anything!” Our Deli showcases the talents of certified Chef Tom Lennen and can cater any number of functions including corporate meals in or out of the office, company meetings and parties, wedding rehearsals/showers, anniversaries, funerals, retirements, sports events, BBQs and much, much more. Our Deli is located at 41 East Lancaster Avenue in Paoli, right next to the trademark bull. Stop by and experience the commitment to quality in the restaurant, deli or meat counter.
