Everyone has a dream to become something that they never thought they would be. Maybe they would dream to become President or even a King! Mario DiGangi Founder & President of Mario's Meats & Gourmet Deli had a similar dream. Now he is known as " The King of Italian Style Veal Cutlets & Homemade Sausage" Let's take you back to how it all started...

Mario and his family lived in a town called Polizzi Generosa located near Palermo, Italy. In 1971 Mario and his family came to America in hopes of a new life. They soon moved to a home in Brooklyn, NY. Everyday after Mario would get out of school he would go work hard at “Conti's Meat” on Knickerbocker Avenue. Every Friday Mario would deliver to Conti’s customers. One particular customer knew that he would be able to set his watch to the time promised and Mario without a doubt would be on time. After 3 years in Brooklyn Mario and his family moved to Ridgewood, Queens. Without wasting any time Mario found work at “Joe’s & Tony’s Meat Market.” Mario worked here for 9 years. After 12 years of working with other Meat Markets Mario decided to move ahead and start his own business. It is now 2010 and located on 75-55 Metropolitan Ave, Middle Village NY 11379 Mario owns and runs his own Butcher & Deli Shop for years now. When you walk into Mario's Meats & Gourmet Deli there are so many things you cant help but notice. One of the biggest things are the happy looks on all the workers faces. All the cooking is done on premises and only the top quality prime and black angus meats are used. Whether your ordering a sandwich from the gourmet deli or buying a pound of our famous veal cutlets you get that same Mom & Pop feeling all around.
