Joe Realeís mother and uncle began their journey in the seafood industry in the early 1980ís. They started by operating a wholesale fish store located in a farmers market, and eventually expanded to a clam bar at the other end of the market. They worked the farmers market for about three years until the market was closed for redevelopment. In 1983, they moved their clam bar business around the corner into a storefront which originally was a childrenís clothing store. The Realeís expanded into a second storefront next door that became available in 1986. They not only doubled that location in size, but as the years went on, Joe and his cousins opened several other locations in the area, and they all branched out into different stores. After Joeís mom and uncle retired, the next generation stayed in their own stores and went their separate ways. ìWe are all family related but individually owned,î Joe explained, referring to the restaurants. Eventually, the clam bar theme turned into Popeiís Clam Bar & Seafood Restaurant. Popeiís is famous for all you can eat crab legs, shrimp, and ribs.
