Well, this use local and support local craze is still going strong…. I gotta say that my family has been doing this for over twenty years. Since I can remember our family business, a large catering company has been using Brampton based Italpasta. Here are some of the pasta dishes at That Italian Place. 1. Mafalda e Baccala. 2. Penne & meatballs
For our relationship to last this long from one successful business journey to the next, they have had to be and continue to be something special.
I remember as a young teenager our first salesman Frank, straight shooter type of guy, pleasant to talk to and got the job done….. Still to this day he hasn’t changed. Since then each salesperson even my current representative, Mario remains professional and caring. This is how friendship in business can work.Sometimes I chuckle at people when they say “italian pasta is the best”….. Why do I chuckle? Maybe in Italy when you are in Italy…. But here, where my business is, where I live, where I feed my customers, I’ll take that local made pasta that doesn’t have to travel overseas. I know the people, I trust the quality and I know their standards are high.Here is their story, taken from their website at Www.Italpasta.com
