The Liberto Family business was founded in 1909 by Rosario Liberto after he arrived in America from Sicily. His son, Enrico Liberto, second generation, revived the business in 1933 after his father filed for bankruptcy during the era of the Great Depression. Enrico’s son, Frank Liberto, third generation, took over the business in 1960 when his father became blind. Frank pioneered concession nachos in 1976. One of Frank’s three children, Tony Liberto, fourth generation, serves as President and CEO. Megan MacDiarmid, one of Frank’s five grandchildren, makes up the fifth generation of employees.
