First up, tell us a little bit about yourself?
I have lived in Silverdale for 22 years! And both of my children attended Warragamba Public School.
I’ve always worked in retail, starting in my father’s fruit shops, petrol station, deli and liquor store when I was younger. I took over and ran my family’s liquor store and deli when I was 19, I was also a director of the Independent Liquor Group Australia’s largest liquor Co-Operative wholesaler for 7 years.
After selling the family business in 2015, from there I took a job as the National Business Manager of ASM Liquor, Asahi Premium Beverages and helped launch Swift and Moore Beverages in Australia (all between 2016 and 2019). In 2017 I purchased Dam Fine Wines changing the name to LiquorMaster in Warragamba, in 2019, I opened 'Nick’s Deli & Grocery' in Warragamba and moved the liquor store next to it. We have been open, servicing and supporting the local community ever since. We employ 7 local staff members.
What about Nicks Deli & Grocery? What do you guys do?
Nick’s Deli & Grocery in Warragamba is a full Australian and Continental Delicatessen, we have been opened since February 2019 and stock over 50 different cheeses, over 70 different cold meats, antipasto, and we make fresh sandwiches and rolls.
Our most popular roll is the “WOG ROLL” – Ham, Salami, Mortadella, Provalone Cheese, olives, sundried tomatoes, marinated eggplant and artichokes all on a traditional Italian style Panini. The Deli is ever evolving and changing the range of smallgoods.
What about Wollondilly, why did you choose this region for your business?
Having lived in Wollondilly for the last 22 years, I saw Warragamba and Silverdale changing and I knew the town needed something extra to support the current new and existing locals, hence opening Nick’s Deli & Grocery. I love the area, the people and the community culture.
What’s your favourite thing about Wollondilly?
The community, the rural feel and the amount of natural attraction’s Wollondilly has to offer.
What about your favourite Dilly town?
Warragamba is by far my favourite town, with history and culture, community feel and support, and we also have one of the greatest tourist attractions in NSW, Warragamba Dam!
