Fusciardi's is a small family run business which began in the January of 1967 with Antonio and Anna Fusciardi.
Antonio Fusciardi emigrated in the 1960s in search of a better life. He opened a number of businesses in Ireland. In 1965 he met Anna Morelli at an Italian wedding and romance blossomed. The couple married and set up home in Marine Parade, Eastbourne. They worked very hard in establishing the business and attributed their success to ambition, dedication and the family.
In June 1984 Antonio’s little sister, Teresa Fusciardi, took over the business and dedicated her life to the business and Eastbourne for over 30 years. She won many awards during this period, most recently “The Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2011 at the Women in Business Awards for East Sussex. She worked tirelessly to establish the business and constantly sought ways to improve Fusciardis. She played an integral part in the pedestrianisation of the side road next to Fusciardi's to ensure a pleasurable café experience for her customers.
In 2010, Teresa’s nephew, Marino Pesce took over the establishment. He also wishes to continue serving the lovely town of Eastbourne. He is constantly searching for ways to improve the business and customer experience. Marino is passionate about gelato and coffee and his mission to serve his customers the best possible ice cream and coffee and ensure his customers have great experience at Fusciardis.
