Procacci Brothers Turns 70, Celebrates Customers and Suppliers
PHILADELPHIA, PA - We’re going to party like its our 70th birthday over here at AndNowUKnow because, for Procacci Brothers, it is! The company is celebrating its 70th year of successful business, having started in 1948, due to the guiding principles of providing customers with quality produce and premium service. While the world is ever-changing, Procacci Brothers’ values are steadfast.
“My father taught me those principles from a very early age. He also taught me to align our businesses with partners and stakeholders who share that mindset,” CEO J.M. Procacci said in a press release. “As we mark the 70th anniversary of Dad and Uncle Mike opening the doors to Procacci Brothers, it’s very important that we acknowledge and celebrate our greatest assets—the customers, suppliers, and employees that have been so fundamental to our success. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
Over the course of the past year, there has been much change in the Procacci family, according to a press release.
“We lost my Uncle Mike and Dad within a week of each other in November 2017, but not before Dad got to meet his great-granddaughter,” Procacci added. “Within our business operations, my son Joseph III is taking on more responsibility every day in our farming operations, while my daughter Gabby has established herself as a Community Outreach leader for the company. She is the Executive Director of our charity golf tournament, which takes place on October 1st. The future of this company is in great hands with Joseph III and Gabby.”
Moving forward, Procacci Brothers will focus on growth in its Floral Department, Organics Category, GS Direct Store Distribution operation, and FELIZ™ brand of ethnic and tropical items.
As Joseph III and Gabby continue to steer the ship toward more successful ventures, the company seeks to remain steeped in the values that have given it a reputation as a “Leader in the Field.”
Congratulations, Procacci Brothers, on this incredible achievement. Here’s to the next 70!
