Tony Continenza Celebrating 40 Years Serving the Wickliffe Community

Community service and civic involvement are important aspects of the Wickliffe Italian-American Club.  In 1977, club member and Pat O’Brien Cleveland Challenge Cup of Bocce Operations Officer, Tony Continenza joined forces with Mike Rajko to open Lincoln Shell in Wickliffe. Mike was already a veteran having started in the business in 1969 and owning two stations before moving to Wickliffe and joining with Tony (along with his brother Rick Continenza and business partner John Orsulic) to open Lincoln Shell. In 1992 Tony and Mike made the transition from Shell to Sunoco, added a car wash, and then expanded again adding a full convenience store to the operation in order to better serve the needs of their customers.  They have been in Wickliffe serving customers for four decades.
