Long Island, NY - March 24, 2014 - Eastern Long Island Hospital’s 22nd entrepreneurs of the oldest same family run restaurant in the United States, Claudio’s Restaurant, Claudio’s Clam Bar and Crabby Jerry’s. 2014 marks the 144th the National Restaurant Association.
The diverse backgrounds of today’s partners greatly help in effectively running and expanding the business. Bill Claudio Jr. is most proud of his years as a jet fighter pilot for the Air Force, but is equally proud of his Columbia business degree. Bill’s wife, Janice, previously enjoyed a career in commercial lending and marketing. Jerry Tuthill, with the insights gained as a now retired Suffolk county police officer, has helped the Clam Bar and Crabby Jerry’s grow and prosper; while Beatsy Claudio Tuthill, a well-loved retired teacher from Oysterponds, would probably say managing a classroom of kindergarteners is not much different than running a restaurant floor. Kathy Claudio-Wyse had years in east end real estate and office administration. The three Claudio born partners will tell you that they virtually grew up in the restaurant, working after school and summers. It truly has been and still remains an all family business.
