Gino’s celebrating 60th anniversary


HUNTINGTON — Gino’s Pizza and Spaghetti House will celebrate its 60th anniversary on April 1.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 60 years,” said the company’s founder, Kenney Grant. “I am so thankful to the people of Huntington, because this is where it all began.”

As a kid growing up in Huntington, Grant said he was influenced about business at an early age.

“My parents Arthur and Myrtle Grant owned Grant’s Market on 8th Avenue, and I had the dream of owning my own small grocery store,” he said.

But in 1960, he attended a Marshall football game that changed his dream.
