Packer Park Real EstateHistory

Peter and Henrietta Ciarrocchi owned a deli and in 1977 purchased a nearby small neighborhood taproom on Robbins Avenue, in Mayfair section of north east Philadelphia known as “Wally’s”. They made three changes by adding stools to the standing-only bar, lifting the “men only” rule, and naming the bar after himself and his wife, Henrietta, whom everyone called Chickie. When Peter died in 1987, it was Chickie who encouraged Pete Junior to run with business ideas and his spin on crab seasoned fries and whatever else he wanted to try. In 1998 their son Pete Ciarrocchi expanded the business by selecting to purchase a run down vacant supermarket building near Veterans Stadium within the Sports Complex Special Service District in Packer Park neighborhood, of South Philadelphia to build upon the sports bar concept by locating in the proximity to the geographic sphere of sport venues in Packer Park.
