Continuing a near century-long business in Andover, Fisichelli's opened their doors to Andover customers on Oct. 6 and owner Nina Fisichelli Gaffny said the community has found out.
"We've had a great response," said Gaffny. "I'm glad to be here"
The bakery is located at 46 Main Street at the former Chic Consignment Closet, which is now located next door.
The original bakery located at 55 Union Street, Lawrence, first opened its doors in 1915 by Gaffny's grandfather, Orazio Fisichelli, an Italian immigrant. The ownership passed from father to son Frank until Gaffny took over 21 years ago, she explained.
The bakery is known for their 38 varieties of cookies, biscottis and bars which are made on-site in their 100 year-old brick oven, as well as many Italian creme-filled pastries and cannolis.
