In the very rich tradition village of Trabia, Sicily, there were 3 brothers
of the proud, hard working Sunseri family that envisioned the dream of bringing their goals and admirable work ethic to America.
In 1902, Augustino, Salvatore and Michael Sunseri formed the company that is now known as the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company.
They started out by manufacturing pasta. After going through the normal growing pains of starting
out, things started looking up. Then, a devastating fire that would have knocked the life and determination out of many did not stop the Sunseri's.
With incredible guts and will, they rebuilt and soon the pasta manufacturing blossomed into olive oil and spice retailing along with offering specialty food
products and cheeses. The nucleus was formed and in the late 1940's, Augustino's sons, Robert (Uncle Bob) and Salvatore took the reins and it was at this point
that phenomenal success could be seen developing.
The Sunseri family story and the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company story are classic examples of what can happen with hard work and dedication. Pennsylvania Macaroni Company is known as one of the premiere specialty food operations in the country.
The third generation of Sunseri's is now at the wheel and when you visit the legendary location in the "Strip District" in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, you will find them easily accessible and bending over backwards to show you how important your business is to them.
