Carol Stream, Il. (October 24, 2014)- Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets. Inc. today announces it will be opening their Carol Stream location, marking the company’s 8th store in Illinois. The grand opening and and ribbon cutting ceremony begins at 9:00 am Wednesday, Oct. 29. This newest 100,000 sq. ft. location within its Corporate Headquarters (located at 520 E North Ave., on the southwest corner of North Ave. and Schmale Rd.) showcases its “Next Generation Fresh Format”. This new facility‘s next generation format also encompasses exciting earth friendly technology applications with an all new CO2 refrigeration system, being the first installation of its kind in the US and largest application in the world! Their responsible green efforts continue with the facility’s complete interior and exterior LED lighting, and installation of EV (electric vehicle) charging stations for customer convenience. The Family owned and operated retailer has been in business since 1958 and they have established a respected reputation for an unparalleled selection of perishables and specialty foods over the years. Along with that comes a team of extraordinarily friendly professionals who provide service with the same pride and passion that the company’s active founder and ideal role model Angelo Caputo has demonstrated for the past 56 years. “We’re extremely proud and excited to unveil our newest store in the Carol Stream community,” said Robertino Presta, the company’s CEO. “We’ve worked very diligently to produce a shopping experience on a whole new level. I like to refer to it as an “event” for our consumers and their lifestyles. Food is what we know and we understand the impact that a great meal has when enjoyed with family and friends! We want to be that destination for them and be a part of providing that experience” says Presta. The store will certainly boast its famously vast array of “Quality Fresh Produce and Organics” that consumers of every ethnicity have come to expect for well over half of a century now. The original “Farmers Market” that most grew up recognizing, still supports its local farmers as they have done since 1958 and long before it became trendy in most markets! With emphasis still evident on “Fresh and Healthy Lifestyles”, a fresh juice bar and yogurt parfait bar within moments of entering the store will certainly be a destination for the health conscious consumer. Along with the state of the art display of hand crafted fresh meats and elaborate fresh seafood selections, exciting new features have been added. Consumers will now have the opportunity to experience and witness the creative and talented Caputo’s team in production first hand. They will be able to view the production of Caputo’s famous fresh sausage, fresh mozzarella, fresh delicate pasta, and made from scratch cookies, pastries, cakes and much more. All of these hidden gems produced behind the scenes for years are now on stage for everybody to see! Consumers would be missing out by not visiting the incredible Deli, with homemade salads, meats and cheeses from around the world along with entire aisles of specialty and traditional groceries that should inspire the “inner chefs” in everyone! The experience and amenities continue as the tantalizing aromas fill the air from the elaborate food court with freshly prepared homemade meals and sides to authentic wood burning oven pizzas and specialty stations. Enjoying these dishes in an inviting soothing atmosphere within casual dining areas or outside patio can only be elevated as you can now enjoy an alcoholic beverage from Bar Angelo, located just outside the food emporiums. “Adults can choose from a large assortment of craft beers and wines, sit back and enjoy that experience of “Food” with us, says Presta”! He continues to say, “The Angelo Caputo Family and staff is very excited for the opportunity to serve the great community of Carol Stream and its surrounding communities! The investment, although significant, has proven to be very rewarding to the future of our family business, and as the final phase emerges we take great pride in being able to bring hundreds of new job opportunities to the immediate area with an unmatched facility”!
