Ace Endico Freshly on Wheels and Delivering to Your Home
Ace Endico, a family-owned business that began with humble roots in a small garage in Mt. Vernon, New York in 1982 is now the leading regional food purveyor and foodservice distributor in the Northeast, employing over 400 employees!

Here, we talk with Steven D'Onofrio Ace Endico VP of Sales about the company's rapidly growing home delivery service - Ace Endico To Go!
Tell me how and why you pivoted your business model to support the community during the pandemic?
We saw a need to help the community who were fearful to leave their homes to shop for fine food and thought- How could we help. Within 2 weeks, we created a brand new website, created a full team, specifically dedicated to this business model, invested in 6 new Sprinter Vans, specifically designed with proper temperature controls to ensure the highest quality of delivery, and trained our drivers to deliver in a COVID19 distanced way. We even deliver Gelato at the perfect temperature- ready to eat every time.
