Historical Newark Based Jewish Owned Deli is Now Black Owned
Newark, NJ – Yes you read that title right! Widely popular Jewish owned deli, Bragman’s Delicatessen is now owned by Newark native, entrepreneur and owner of Burger Walla, Kai Campbell.
In short one of New Jersey’s most popular delis, a community landmark, a historical site and reference, is now black owned. Yup your black history month just got better with this amazing news.
The deli was previously owned by Larry Reisner who purchased the store from his father in 1995 as a second generation owner following his father’s death. His father was a Holocaust survivor and had virtually nothing when he relocated to the United States. He worked his way up and purchased the deli from it’s original owner back in 1951.
The deli was recently purchased this year by Kai Campbell who’s the owner of the unique burger joint downtown Newark, Burger Walla. Campbell is now the owner of the establishment after purchasing from Reisner. Newark’s Mayor, Ras J. Baraka broke the news via an instagram selfie of himself featuring the deli’s newest owner Kai Campbell in the background with a clinched fist for black history month. Congrats to this young man on this business purchase. Now, you can support black business each time you by a sandwich from Bragman’s Delicatessen.
Bragman’s is located at 395 Hawthorne Avenue in Newark, NJ.

Congratulations, welcome to the neighborhood.I don’t live or work too far from restaurant but show my support at least once a month.

Part of what Mr. Campbell purchased was an established good name for a particular ethnic food. I’m sure he’s a smarter guy than those who tell him to change the name. Would O’Reilly’s
Chow Mein entice you?
