Throughout the article, Justine Campitiello explains the joys of having her family work at Alfonso’s Pastry Shoppe for decades and how she realized that working in the bakery was her one true calling. She expressed, “I realized I can’t pick a career because it’s here. My job was here. This was it . . . 100 percent,” Justine also sees her work as not only work, but more like spending time with family, since becoming the owner of the Amboy Road location of Alfonso’s Pastry Shoppe.
