Business Comings & Goings: Peppo’s Dili-Deli Opening New Location in Tinley

The well-known Palos Hills sub shop is branching out.

Peppo’s Dili-Deli, a popular sub shop since 1976 in Palos Hills, is coming to 6905 W. 159th St. in Tinley Park.

“We’re hoping to be open in early October,” said Robert Peplowski, 28, a partner in the business and the son of its founder, Jim Peplowski. Both men live in New Lenox.

“We’ll have the same menu as the Palos Hills location,” said Peplowski, who added that the sub shop might have additional expansion plans in mind.

“If it works out in Tinley, we’ll open more,” he said. “We’ll continue to move south.”

The Tinley location will employ about 10 people, Peplowski said. “We’re now taking applications online.”

For information, call 708-237-1755 or visit online at Peppo’s Dili-Deli or check out the sub shop's Facebook page.
