Brent’s Deli

After working for many years behind a deli counter for his uncles and at various delis in the San Fernando Valley, he was offered a management position with an existing, but failing deli in Northridge. He respectfully declined the position, so the owner proposed he buy the business, bad debt and all . With close to no money and a lot of advice against the purchase, Ron and his wife Patricia forged into a new business in 1969 with all of 11 employees and one delivery truck. Funny thing, they had a son whose name is also Brent, so the deli kept its name. “For eighteen months I never took a day off,” Ron recalls. “I made every sandwich. I wanted every one to be perfect.”
