Who are we?
We trace our heritage to Ernest F. Mariani, an Italian immigrant. He began his life here in the United States where he worked in the coal mines of Southern Utah. Through self education, a lot of hard work, and total dedication to his business and family, he persevered.
Ernest F. Mariani started a small Italian grocery store in 1917, which progressed to a wholesale foods company, then to a wholesale distributor of supplies and equipment to the food and beverage industry.
