By now, most of you know about the passing of my mother Ann “Mama Gallucci”. As you can imagine, it has been a difficult time for our family. On Saturday, December 28th we held a Celebration of Life ceremony in the store. It was wonderful to have so many friends, customers, and family attend. Our hearts were lifted by warm expressions of affection for her. We heard endearing, and yes, sometimes comical stories about her. She would have loved it– all the people in her store enjoying the camaraderie and of course, eating pasta with her sauce!
A Special thanks to Father Ted Marzel for his inspiring words and to Chef Scott and staff for preparing and serving the food.
“We love you, Mama. We’re going to miss you, but no one will ever forget you.”
Carol Gallucci Kotora.
What were the most popular products of Christmas 2019?
#1 Gallucci’s Frozen Pizza Doughballs. Blowing away the competition, the single most popular item was our delicious and versatile frozen doughballs! Great for more than just pizza, you can use them to make calzones and desert pastries, too. (I made a delicious honey nut roll with one last year… perfect!)
#2 Gallucci’s Mild Italian Sausage. Need I say more? Our signature sausage is one of the best things ever to line a casing. Perfect in the skillet or on the grill!
#3 Mazzone Bread. Ever walk into our shop and have your breath taken away by the aroma of fresh baking bread? That’s what Mazzone Bread will do to you. So delicious, a loaf doesn’t last long in my house… better buy two!
Gallucci’s is the place to be in December, as all the good people of Greater Cleveland look for the tastiest items for their kitchens. But what was our single most popular item in Christmas 2019? Can you guess?
Check back on Saturday for the Big Reveal!
Best wishes for 2020 from Gallucci’s!
