Institution Lives On

Koch's Deli
A year after the owner Bob Koch passed away, business at Koch’s Deli is still going strong and more importantly, what Bob Koch stood for still lives on.

If you’re waiting in line at Koch’s Take Out Shop, somebody will probably offer you a free pickle. You’ll at least be able to snatch up a slice of cheese or deli meat while you’re waiting to order.

These gestures may seem small, but the deli’s employees say they define the lasting legacy of Bob Koch, who died last year after owning and managing the business for more than 30 years.
