New York: Guss' Pickles

Izzy Guss was the original owner of Guss' Pickles. Izzy arrived here in 1910. He worked for L. Hollander and Sons and later opened his own store.

In 1979, Harry Baker took over Guss' Pickles with his partner Burt Blitz. Through the 1980's into the new Millenium, Harry and his son ran the store.

In 2002 Andrew Leibowitz announced the creation of Crossing Delancey Pickle Enterprises Corp. As a pleasant surprise to many New Yorkers, Andrew announced plans for future expansion by opening Guss' Pickles retail store in Cedarhurst. As C.E.O. of the company, Andrew envisions future expansion for Guss'. Guss' Pickles, the largest pickle emporium in the world, produces and sells New York barrel cured sour pickles. The rest of the pack sells foreign produced pickles not made in the U.S.A.
