DEN­TON — Among the freshly made food and the com­mu­nity ta­bles, Comp­trol­ler Peter Fran­chot pre­sented the Bul­locks fam­ily with a procla­ma­tion Fri­day, Aug. 17, in recog­ni­tion for own­ing Bul­lock’s Deli in Den­ton for 42 years.

Fran­chot hon­ored Rick Bul­lock, who be­gan the deli, and his daugh­ter Michele Bul­lock Amal­fi­tano, who runs deli, and his son Richie dur­ing a cer­e­mony with lo­cal and state dig­ni­taries.

“Lots of the state’s pros­per­ity is due to es­tab­lish­ments just like Bul­lock’s Deli,” Fran­chot said. “They are a fam­ily-owned suc­cess­ful en­ter­prise with de­li­cious food and great ser­vice.

“I like the at­mos­phere and fam­ily spirit here,” he said. “There are nice ta­bles, pa­trons can sit and re­lax while get­ting great food and great ser­vice.”

Fran­chot called Bul­lock’s Deli a one-stop shop be­cause pa­trons can get food, gas, fish­ing li­censes, boat­ing stick­ers, beer and wine.

“Your ex­cel­lent ser­vice to cus­tomers re­flects the care and com­mit­ment dis­played by ev­ery­one through the mar­ket,” he said.

Amal­fi­tano said she is proud to see her fam­ily hon­ored.

“It means a lot that my dad got rec­og­nized for all of his hard work,” she said. “Him and my mom have given so much to the deli, to the com­mu­nity and our fam­ily. This is what they love. I’m proud of them. We could not do this with­out a great staff.”

Den­ton Mayor Abi­gail McNinch was joined at the cer­e­mony by a host of lo­cal and state dig­ni­taries, in­clud­ing Caro­line County com­mis­sion­ers Larry Porter, Wil­bur Le­ven­good and Dan Franklin, Caro­line County Sher­iff Randy Bounds, state Del. Jeff Ghrist, R-36-Caro­line, and Caro­line Reg­is­ter of Wills Jim Phelps.

“Bul­lock’s is truly the cor­ner­stone of Den­ton,” McNinch said. “Kids come here af­ter school. Peo­ple come for lunch. There is al­ways a line. It is a fan­tas­tic es­tab­lish­ment.”

Porter, who said he eats a meal at Bul­lock’s al­most ev­ery day, cred­its the deli for sup­port­ing lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

“Any sports team, any or­ga­ni­za­tion that tries to raise money, you will see Bul­lock’s name on it be­cause they are in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous with their money and their pub­lic sup­port,” he said.

Bul­lock’s Deli is lo­cated at 422 N. Sixth Street in Den­ton. The deli will host the The sev­enth an­nual BBQ Cook­out for Leukemia Aware­ness Cruise in and Car Show at 4 p.m. Satur­day, Sept. 15.
