During 1994 in Montour Falls, New York, Salvatore and Maria Purpura started the Jerlando’s Pizza Corporation. Originally from San Guiseppe Jato, Italy, Sal, Maria and family fell in love with the beautiful natural surroundings of this area as it reminded them of Italy.

In 2020, their son, Gerlando, along with his wife, Jessica and their 4 children, took over the pizzeria. The Purpura family is grateful to have been a staple in Montour Falls for over 25 years and look forward to serving the community for many more to come!
