Integrity and commitment to service was the foundation for Michael and Roy Renzi when they started their fresh wholesale meat distribution company in 1977; aptly named Renzi Bros. Inc. With no prior business experience or higher education, the two brothers ventured on an entrepreneurial journey with the hope of success for their American Dream. Their tenacity and hard work paid off and Renzi Bros. Inc. soon became a successful and thriving business; the ten years that followed were met with excitement, growth and expansion. Renzi Bros. Inc. became a leading broad-line foodservice distributor expanding their service territory throughout Upstate New York. In 1987, due to rapid growth, they moved from a small warehouse to a larger facility on Bradley Street in Watertown, New York.
A Family Affair
In the late '90's, Mike's sons, John, Jude and David Renzi took an active leadership role in the company, along with their four sisters, all who have played or continue to play an integral role within the family business. With new leadership and vision, came a new name and mission for the company. Renzi Bros. Inc. became Renzi Foodservice, one of the largest family-owned and operated companies in Northern and Central New York. In 2007, Renzi Foodservice opened their state-of-the-art facility at 901 Rail Drive in Watertown, New York and have had multiple expansions to the facility; meeting the ever-changing demands and growth of the foodservice industry. With the second generation at the helm, Renzi Foodservice quickly garnered a reputation for unsurpassed quality of service to its customers with loyal support to their employees and the communities for which they serve. This commitment to service has been the cornerstone to Renzi Foodservice's Delivering the Difference mission and vision.
