Amici Lake Oconee
The owners, Manny and Letty met in Colorado Springs, Colorado in the Fall of 2011. At the time Manny was serving in the military and Letty was working for COSTCO. Throughout Letty’s career at COSTCO, she served in multiple departments as a supervisor and management. Letty’s passion for cooking came at an early age, until she decided a career with COSTCO. Letty also has vast experience as a sous chef at various top restaurants in Michigan. Manny served in the U.S. Army Intelligence community for over 15 years. He also has had multiple management roles in his career.
Letty’s restaurant and cooking experience, coupled with Manny’s management experience complement each other to provide top quality service at AMICI Lake Oconee. Excellent customer service is their top priority, and they want you to know that AMICI Lake Oconee is the “community living room”.
Manny and Letty decided to join the AMICI family as an independent franchisee after a family friend suggested that they take a lunch detour to the AMICI Madison location in 2016. After the excellent customer service and awesome food experience they decided to contact Mike Torino, the AMICI CEO about franchising opportunities.
After a challenging couple of years of searching for the right location, Manny and Letty decided to purchase an existing AMICI in the Lake Oconee area. Manny and Letty moved to Lake Oconee in February 2019 to pursue their passion and be part of the lake community. Manny and Letty are truly grateful on how the Lake Oconee community has embraced them with open arms as they seek to further their passion and provide for the community.
Letty and Manny married in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2012, and are also proud parents of Kianna (23), Jayda (18), Gabriella (5) and Manny jr. (22mo)
