Bressi family is very proud to carry on the great legacy of our our Family's Supermarket
Business. We have faithfully been serving the public with Quality Meats and fine
Ethnic Products since 1924. We are headquartered in beautiful Kulpmont, PA.
The Trojan Prince brought our family to America-
regards to the family---taste and quality ingredients are absolutely king. Our
products contain NO nitrates or preservatives of any kind----and we make
everything the same way we have been since the early 1900's. These products contain
almost no fat because we use the best and leanest cuts of meat. Our dry-cured
products are Aged like a fine wine. When you taste a Bressi
product, you will be tasting a product that has been aged to perfection in an
ideal climate and humidity. Patience is the key to success--in the entire year
our products are made in the course of a few very select weeks. Everything has
to be perfect for the curing process--however--the results and quality of our
products will astound even the most senior lovers of fine food.
Preparing for a game of Bocce Ball
Story: The year was 1901, and the Trojan Prince passenger ship sailed in to
beutiful and legendary Ellis Island. After months on board, Antonio Esposito Bressi
emerged from the ships hull to be greeted by New York city and a sight of the
statue of liberty. He had temporarily left his wife and children in his hometown
of Isca Sullo Ionio (Catanzaro, Calabria Italy) to get settled in their new home.
Antonio Esposito and Family (The Founders)
working in the blast mines of central PA to pay his ships fair, the entire family
came to America. From that point on, his sites were set on the creation of Bressi's
Market in Kulpmont, PA. The journey was a long one, and it took quite some time
until the needed funds were collected. But at last---after patience and an iron
will---the construction began and the dream became a reality. This market would
build upon the tastes and cultures of the people of Calabria, and later, the people
of Europe in general.
Leaving the Port
the store could speak it would have a lot to say----it has seen multiple wars,
the depression, man landing on the moon, the iron curtain and it's collapse, the
tearing down of the Berlin wall, the atomic bomb, countless presidents and a host
of other historical events. Yes---the history is rich---just like the flavor of
our legendary aged meats and ethnic products. Come to Bressi's in order to taste
a slice of history!
