Arthur Mac’s

What's the origin story for your food business?

Joel DiGiorgio has a long family history running restaurants.  His grandfather immigrated from southern Italy in the early 50’s and claims he invented pizza.  “I doubt I am the only Italian grandchild that was told their grandfather invented pizza, but that’s the family folklore.”

Joel is also one of the founders of Farm League restaurant group that launched Drake’s Dealership in Oakland’s Uptown neighborhood.  “There is something special about feeding people.  It’s ceremonial for every culture. Arthur Mac’s is our little baby. When we came to this neighborhood, we realized there was a need for vibrancy, a need for affordable food. We love making connections and being the neighborhood backyard where people can connect and enjoy themselves over good food and drinks."
