Following his father legacy, who started the path to perfect the cheesesteak sandwich back in the 1950s with his shop "Rick and Gil's", Rick Pistone founded Rick's Cheesesteak Shop in 2010 in Newport News, Virginia, out of his passion for cooking and his vision to keep the entrepreneurial spirit as the backbone of his Italian-American roots.
