Jack Fiorella, the eldest son, worked with his father until 1974, when he decided to branch off and start Fiorella's Jack Stack of Martin City," as stated on their website.
It all started with their method of cooking meats over hickory wood. At the time in the 1970s, they had the most extensive menu in the nation.
