Your Pizza is Our Specialty
Angie’s was established in 1977 by Vito Spillone. Before starting Angie’s, Vito had many years of experience in the restaurant business from owning a local 24hr diner to several pizzerias. In 1977 he decided to start his own food distribution business out of a small warehouse garage and a pick-up truck. He started by selling only 7 items to a couple of local pizzerias.
Today, almost 40 years later the business is still owned by Vito and his family servicing hundreds of customers with hundreds of different products daily. The company distributes everything from meat, cheese, paper products, salad dressing, pasta, etc.
In 1936, Vito Spillone was born in Chicago, IL. He was the youngest of 10 to an immigrant family who migrated from Italy just a few years before he was born. Growing up poor, Vito had given up school to work and support his family at a very young age. His first job was selling newspapers on corner streets, to later owning a 24 hour diner, and then eventually joining the family business as a masonry, bricklayer.
Vito moved to California in 1976 for a better life and continued his masonry work by construction pizzerias in the Southern California area.
After constructing several pizzerias, Vito grew fond of the pizzeria business. After much thought, he and a few of his colleagues became partners and started The Cheese Company, which sold cheese to local pizzerias in the area.
Angie’s is established
In 1977, Vito was able to buyout this partners and changed the business’s name to Angie’s Wholesale Groceries Inc. after his mother Angelica.
Our product list consisted of only a few items including: cheese, pepperoni, sausage, pizza sauce, spice mix and pizza boxes and distribution was mainly to a local pizzeria chain in Southern California.
In 1982, Angie’s moved the business from a small 1,500 square foot warehouse to a 16,000 square foot facility where we still reside today in South El Monte, CA. With the expansion of our facility we had the capability to vastly expand our product offerings. Product lines grew and so did our customers.
By 2001, Angie’s was paving the industry with Italian food distribution in the Southern California Area. We were delivering to 100’s of customers weekly and supplying them with top quality products daily. Lisa Rojano, Vito’s daughter started working for Angie’s and began modernizing the company and growing the business. Our fleet doubled in size and our service area expanded to over 100 mile radius of our facility.
A New Generation with an Old School Feel
In February of 2020, Lisa Rojano, stepped in as the new owner of Angie’s. Lisa’s vision for the company is to continue the legacy that her father started and grow the business to service other areas besides the Italian restaurant segment. Her goal is to grow a sustainable business that is able to provide a viable lifestyle for all her employees and contribute in the growth and success of each of her customers. At Angie’s, we continue to service our customer in the same personal way as when we first started. Going above and beyond for our customers is the reason why we’ve stayed in business for so long and it’s the reason we will remain a great option as a food distributor.
We currently service Los Angeles County, Orange County, Inland Empire, and the San Fernando Valley.
