Lipari Foods, LLC.
In the early 1950's Jim Lipari began distributing unique products from the back of his Ford station wagon. Through the following years Jim worked as a meat cutter and operated a full line grocery store. Jim and his partner created their own barbecue sauce called Bazzo's. On Jim's days off he would load up the station wagon with Bazzo's and work a sales route. Soon after Jim created and began selling Bella Mia Spaghetti Sauce. In 1963 Jim formed Lipari Food Distributors in order to continue distributing Bazzo's and Bella Mia. Other products continued to be added to the Lipari product line, but Jim's big break came in 1967 when Frank's Tea & Spice appointed Lipari as their distributor. Jim was soon known as the “spice man” and his customer base included many independent supermarkets.
