Nick’s owner Joseph Schultice referred to the group as the “greatest bunch of folks ever” and said they were a pleasure to speak with. The Seminarians were from all different parts of the world.

The leader of the Seminarians asked Schultice to make a speech about Nick’s and its history. Afterwards, he was presented with a cross to hang inside the business.

The Seminarians ate their cheesesteaks, socialized and left after about an hour.
