Stateside Deli was born in 2008 when the Soka brothers were longing for a taste of the deli sandwiches they grew up eating in metro Detroit. One day, Spencer Soka happened to notice an ice cream shop with its doors shuttered and an idea was formed – he would bring a deli to the greater Lansing area.

Instantly he knew he wanted to create a real New York style deli and he knew just who he wanted to join him on this venture – his brother, Steven. The Soka brothers would stay true to the New York style deli roots but at the same time they wanted to put their own spin on their favorite sandwiches.

At Stateside Deli, the Soka Brothers strive to serve the highest quality, and freshest food around. At Stateside Deli, there is something for everyone!
