More Than 60 Years of Quality
Our Roma brand combines more than 60 years of heritage to bring the best Italian ingredients to America. In 1951, at the age of 20, Louis G. Piancone left Corato, Italy, for the United States. In 1955, Piancone decided to pursue the true American dream and opened an Italian delicatessen in Bradley Beach, New Jersey.
Noticing a need for wholesale distribution to restaurants in the area, in 1964 he sold the retail side of his business. He moved his focus to supplying authentic Italian food to restaurants and Roma Food was born. Today Roma combines this tradition with a dedication to sourcing the best Italian products, both traditional and innovative. Roma is the leading foodservice brand for authentic Italian food and impeccable service.
