Back in 1954, Palermo’s founders, Gaspare Fallucca & his wife Zina migrated from Sicily to America carrying the cherished recipes used in the family pizzeria. They started in Milwaukee as an Italian bakery, evolved into a restaurant & pizzeria and in 1969, the company began making frozen pizza. Today Palermo’s offerings have extended beyond frozen pizza manufacturer with an authentic Italian history. The company offers pizza factory tours and fundraising opportunities, has a pizzeria, café & a company store, and is extremely active in the community.
While most of the companies that sell frozen pizza have never had any real connections with Italy, Palermo’s passion for food reaches back to the old country where pizza was first born. Gaspare (“Papa”) Fallucca & his wife Zina migrated from Sicily to America carrying the cherished recipes used in the family pizzeria. Now in the 3rd generation of family business, Papa’s commitment to using only the freshest quality ingredients continues.View History
