the brothers three was founded by Glen, Keith, and Dale Nergard, who opened the Marinette location May 19th, 1972. Prior to the Marinette location, the brothers were operating the brothers three in Cicero, Illinois. The pizza recipe that is used to this day was developed between 1968 and 1972 in the Cicero location.
Over the years, the menu has grown from pizza and sandwiches to include Mexican and Italian specialties, evolving to the menu we utilize today. Through the years, the brothers opened other locations including Chippewa Falls, Green Bay, Eau Claire, Neenah, and Oconto. They have since sold all the locations.
In May of 2018, Marinette locals Jim and April Hansen purchased the Marinette location as well as Jozwiak’s Bar & Grill in Menominee. The Hansen’s have taken great care to ensure the original recipes stay in-tact, while investing in the team, building, and menu enhancements. Nate Luthardt, General Manager, serves both locations and has been with the organization for over a decade. the brothers three is well-positioned to continue serving the Marinette and Menominee communities for decades to come.
