In 2005, after working for restaurant groups in Boston and Chicago, founders Joe and John Lanni, set out on their own. Currito was born and quickly began to grow to 12 locations by 2011. Now with more than double that number and locations in 6 different states, Currito is the most far-reaching of the Lanni brothers’ concepts. They currently operate Thunderdome Restaurant Group, which includes Currito, Bakersfield, The Eagle, Krueger’s Tavern, SoHi, and Maplewood.
