12800 E. Eight Mile Rd., Detroit; 313-839-9374
Vince's Bakery and Party store has been on Eight Mile Road just past Groesbeck Highway since June 1970, run by the Cucci family.That's largely thanks to the joint's sandwiches, made with bread that's still baked every morning by Vince Cucci, who came to Detroit from Palermo, Sicily, a generation ago. Over the last 45 years, the store has sold about 2 million of these sandwiches. In 1970, they sold for 99 cents; today, they're just $3.25.
