2020 OUTSTANDING INDEPENDENTS
With the success of its new 10,000-square-foot market, Glorioso’s returned to the original 1,500-square-foot storefront across the street and transformed it into Appetito, a culinary center that includes space for hands-on cooking classes and demonstrations, expanded kitchens for increased catering and food production, and event space. Appetito expands the “Italian experience” of the store into an interactive space where people can come together over quality Italian food and beverages. Cooking classes can accommodate up to 28 people, and there’s additional event space for up to 100, including tour groups, private parties and corporate events.
Founded in 1946 by three brothers and still operated by members of the founding family, Glorioso’s has gained national recognition as one of the finest Italian markets in the country.
