Here’s how our CEO, Perry Stancato got his early beginnings in the restaurant and foodservice industries.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Growing up in the restaurant business, I learned the ins and outs of a kitchen and the challenges that came with it. With a desire to expand our capabilities and improve our family business, I set out for the Culinary Institute of America. I immersed myself in flavor profile development and returned to the restaurant with an expertise aimed at creating more consistency in the kitchen. Through learned techniques, I optimized our recipes and eliminated many prior inconsistencies. With a gold standard product in place and consumer demand, I was put to task to bottle our sauce for the masses. I quickly learned that the process was not easy for boutique manufacturers. Faced with a new set of challenges, we started working with a small manufacturer in Canton, OH. After working with them for a short time, we felt it was time to take the reigns and move closer to our home base with expanded capabilities to produce our handcrafted recipes. This is how Signature Sauces came to life and a new journey began.
WHERE WE ARE TODAY
