Pre 1970s[edit | edit source]
Satriale's Pork Store was intially owned by Mr. Satriale, a Gambling addict who in the early 70s got into debt with Johnny Boy Soprano due to his Gambling. Satriale either refused to pay the debt, or didn't have enough money, causing Johnny Boy Soprano to cut off Satriale's pinky finger whilst Junior Soprano held him down in the backroom of Satriale's Pork Store. The incident was witnessed by a young Tony Soprano, who was supposed to be waiting in the Car outside. A short time later, due to Mr. Satriale being in debt, Johnny Boy Soprano 'partnered' with Mr. Satriale in the Pork Store in the form of a bust out. By the end of the partnership, Mr. Satriale had died by suicide and Johnny Boy had claimed the ownership of the pork store.
Under the Sopranos[edit | edit source]
Since Johnny Boy Soprano took over the Pork Store, Satriale's has become a popular hang out for members of the DiMeo Crime Family, particulary the Soprano Crew. When Johnny Soprano died in 1986, he handed the Pork Store over to his son; Tony Soprano, who has owned it ever since. The outside of the Pork Store is normally littered with members of the Soprano Crew, it is occasionally used for Sit downs such as when Johnny Sack had a sit down with Junior Soprano, but the Pork Store if mostly used for social means.
