Ron Sapleton and his wife Sandy are the owners & proprietors of The Nephew’s Restaurant. Ron started the restaurant in 1995 after deciding on a career change (formerly employed by Raytheon as a machine shop fabrication supervisor/ Engineer for 15 years). Having worked for his aunt and uncle for years in their respective dining establishments, his dream of opening his own restaurant became a reality in July of 1995. Sandy utilized her own business experience (owner/director of Creative Playschool in New Bedford since 1985), as well as her experience in customer relations to help her husband successfully create a first class dining establishment.
Married since 1979, Ron & Sandy are the parents of three children — Sara, Jonathan and Mark, as well as two special grandsons, Landon and Jack. As in most family businesses, all three have been actively involved in various aspects of the operation. Ron’s mom, Rosa, came to this country from Italy when she was a little girl, and her rich Italian heritage includes wonderful recipes from the old country.
