May 10th Declared Miracle Mile Deli Day
In this day and age, there aren’t many businesses in the Valley that can say they have been around and successful for almost 67 years. Miracle Mile Deli, however, can, and their good-standing in the Valley is being recognized this week. The City of Phoenix is declaring Tuesday, May 10th Miracle Mile Deli Day by order of proclamation from Mayor Greg Stanton.
The Miracle Mile story began in 1949, when founder, Jack Grodzinsky, along with his wife and children, arrived in Tucson from Brooklyn, New York. Grodzinsky took a bus ride to Phoenix looking for a business he could purchase to help support his family. He decided on a restaurant and took over an existing space on McDowell Road and 16th Street. This mile long strip of land where the restaurant was established came to be known as the “Miracle Mile”.
Fast forward and the locally-owned restaurant recently moved to their new venue at in Phoenix. Miracle Mile Deli has been family owned and operated for three generations and continues to provide a unique experience in casual dining.
At 10am on Tuesday, this will become official with Councilman Sal DiCiccio saying a few words about the significance of the locally owned restaurant making its mark in the Valley for more than six decades. Josh Garcia, Vice President of Miracle Mile Deli, and grandson of original owner Jack Grodzinsky will also be on hand and speak to the audience.
Their dedication to the community, even on their special day, proves their commitment to serving others. A portion of the proceeds from sales on May 10th will be donated to Feeding Matters, a local non-profit that is dedicated to raising awareness of pediatric feeding struggles. In addition to giving back, they will also be giving back to their customers. From noon to 8pm, Miracle Mile Deli will be giving a $100 gift card to one of their patrons every hour. You can stop in all day to register to win, with no purchase necessary.
Miracle Mile Deli is located at 1949 E. Indian School Road in Phoenix. Make sure to stop in for the Official Miracle Mile Deli Day.
