About Us:

We are a family business started by Bartholomew Perrone in 1924. The partners of the Perrone and De Maio families originally opened Progress Grocery, later splitting and becoming Progress Grocery and Central Grocery, thus giving the muffuletta sandwich its rich and slightly varied history and legacy. Currently we are in our fourth generation offering the same Italian quality products that Bartholomew did in the deli, but we also offer over 5,000 specialty items and ingredients to restaurants and grocery stores.
