ANNA & ROCCO
In August of 1925, Anna Polidori and her husband Rocco open Polidori’s Grocery and Meat Market in North Denver. As the butcher in the Meat Market, Anna would regularly cook up her family heirloom sausage recipes for pure enjoyment in the back of the store. The aroma of the sausages enticed customers to want to purchase Anna’s Italian Sausages. Steadily as the years past Anna continued to sell sausage from the meat counter at Polidori’s Grocery to both walk in customers and restaurants.
LOUIS & AUGIE
In 1945 Anna’s sons Louis and Augie Polidori would take over the grocery store. For the next 37 years the two brothers would grow the sausage business into a successful industry. After the passing of Anna in 1982, the grocery store is sold and Louis Polidori moves the meat processing plant to a larger location on Tejon Street in Denver.
STEVE & MELODIE
Lou’s grandson and 4th generation Polidori, Steven joins the business in 1992 and brings along fresh ideas for automating the processing which allowed the business to run more efficiently. In 2003 with the business growing, Melodie Polidori Harris, Steve’s sister and great granddaughter to Anna joins the company and brings new insight into small business and marketing.
Today, Polidori’s continues to upgrade equipment and operating procedures in an effort to continue producing the highest quality sausage products. In 2016 we moved to a new, Certified Green, facility in Denver. Awarded Best Italian sausage, we are proud to carry on our great grandmother’s family recipes and take great pride in operating a family run company. Anna would be proud to see her family traditions live on in Polidori Sausage.
