Lou, Diane and Mario
Melloni are the owner/operators of Melloniís Catering, 555 Center
Street, Lewiston, NY and Melloniís Market Place, a full service grocery
store, 200 Lockport Street, Youngstown, NY.
Mellonís Catering was
established in 1990 as a meat market/deli, branching out into catering.
The catering business was started because of their love for cooking and
wanted the food to taste like it comes from ďMomísĒ kitchen. Melloniís
Catering makes catered events affordable and enjoyable for everyone with
itís down home tastes, and like to refer to it as ďBlue Collar
In 2011, the Melloniís
decided to branch out into the grocery business. The new location,
Melloniís Market Place located at 200 Lockport Street in Youngstown, New
York offers a full line of dry groceries, fresh produce and fresh meats.
Melloniís is a small
independent grocery store in an era of large super modern markets. Do
not be fooled by their size. Belonging to a large grocery co-op in
Olean, Melloniís has the buying power of their larger competition.
Prices are in line with or lower then most of the larger super stores.
Cleanliness and customer service is their motto. Carry-outs and free
delivery to elder customers is a pleasure for the Melloniís.
They specialize in their
homemade Italian sausage made with a recipe brought from Bologna, Italy
by Louís father. Fresh Polish sausage and award-winning Lewiston Brats
are also a customer favorite. They are very well-known for having the
best cuts of meat in the area. The secret ingredient in their sausage is
the process by which it was always made in Italy that generates a deep
sense of respect for it, and a deep sense of connection to where it
comes from. The Melloniís will never compromise that. All ingredients
are weighed and blended by hand so it is consistent every time it is
made. No preservatives or MSG are added.
Catering is still a very
important part of the business, but by closing the store front in
Lewiston, they can now offer all the loyal customers a full service
store only 4 miles away in Youngstown. Customers can now, not only
purchase the top quality meats they have grown accustomed to, but can
now purchase all their grocery needs with one stop.
Of course, Melloniís
will still be visible in Lewiston for all the festivals with their
award-winning homemade Italian sausage.
