Salvy's flower business In 1962, an eight-year-old, Salvy Migliaccio, Jr., was already learning the flower business. Salvy watched his father's first flower store in Lynn, Massachusetts for a half and hour while Salvy Migliaccio Sr. went home to eat his supper. Salvy learned from his father the fundamental values of hard work. According to Salvy, his father could have succeeded at anything because of his remarkable determination.
Salvy's Mom and DadThis is truly an immigrant success story. Salvy Migliaccio, Sr., who didn't speak a word of English, embraced the challenges America had to offer. By day, he worked in his brother's flower shop; by night, he attended school. After many long hours and unfailing perseverance, Salvy, Sr. was able to open his own store in 1962. It was on Western Avenue in Lynn, almost across the street from his home.
Salvy's Mom Coming Home Salvy, Jr. inherited a great deal of his character from his strong, independent mother. In the late 50's, Connie DeBenedetto, Salvy's mother, journeyed alone to the small village of Forenza, in Southern Italy to meet, for the first time, her future husband, Salvy Migliaccio, Sr. Coming from the thriving city of Lynn, Massachusetts to Forenza, where people still used donkeys to get around, was quite an experience.
Salvy Sr. and SonsIn the 70's, Salvy, Jr. attended Boston University, pursuing a Liberal Arts degree. But, after two years, he decided to return to the family business. Soon, Salvy was in charge of the family's second flower store on 231 Union St in Lynn. David, Salvy's older brother, followed suit shortly after he graduated from college, and the Migliaccio family opened their third location in East Boston.
