       The Cocca business has been passed on to the second generation under the authority of Steve Cocca, Nick and Tina's youngest son.  With 350 slices of pizza being eaten every second, Steve believes it all comes down to Quality, Service, and Cleanliness.  All eight current locations are run off "QSC" and for that reason they have grown to be very successful.  Each store must meet the strict quality standards set in place.

       The Cocca's have developed a pizza recipe that is not only delicious, but also nutritious.  The endless combinations offered provide the opportunity for costumers to consume all 5 food groups in a single slice - yet another reason for families, the target consumers, to choose pizza!  Cocca's Pizza is one that is loved by the communities around them.  To show the support and appreciation from the communities, Cocca's has been the recipient of many awards:
