Our Story

A message from the owners

"Before we opened Poco Deli, we were making sausages and bacon out of our home kitchen for our family and friends to enjoy. Cooking and baking had always been passions we shared. Our families were involved in cattle ranching down south in Bukidnon, which exposed us to butchery and charcuterie-making. 
The inspiration for what would later be Poco Deli's signature dishes came to us during our travels in Europe and North America. We were fascinated by the rich history embedded in different cuisines - from the Italian art of curing prosciutto and salami, to the pastrami sandwiches served by the culturally iconic Katz's Deli in New York. 
Thus, in October of 2008, we opened the doors to the first Poco Deli restaurant. Our cozy shop tucked in our neighborhood was called "poco" by our Italian suppliers, and somehow the name stuck.
Throughout the years, this identity remained: a quaint neighborhood deli and restaurant, happily serving the community. From humble beginnings making a small variety of sausages and a handful of pastries in 2008, Poco Deli has grown into an award-winning restaurant with 3 branches and 2 sister cafes. Now, our small team of butchers and bakers produce over 40 variations of European sausages, homemade charcuterie, baked goods, and comfort food.

Despite the growth we have been blessed with, Poco Deli will always be the little neighborhood deli it started as:
a place to indulge in familiar comfort food with your special someones. We hope to have you dine with us soon."
