Tony Vitrano Co. turns 80 years old
The Tony Vitrano Co., Jessup, Md., marks its 80th year this year.
The distributor, which sells to retailers, foodservice purveyors and wholesalers, doesn’t plan any events to celebrate the milestone, said Tony Vitrano, president.
Tony Vitrano’s father, Justin Vitrano, still works in the office a couple of times a week, as does his brother, Norman Vitrano, part of the second generation that remains actively involved.
Tony Vitrano, the grandfather of the younger Tony Vitrano, founded the company in 1932. He died in 1985.
Vitrano distributes to customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic, from Pennsylvania to South Carolina and West Virginia.
