At ShopRite, generations of families have served generations of their customers’ families. Although they have grown from the small “Mom and Pop” stores of the 1940’s, most ShopRite stores are still family owned and operated businesses – many with second, third, or even fourth generations involved.
The Romano Family
The Romano family has a long and proud history in the food business. It all began in 1927 when Thomas and Vincenia Romano started a candy store in their New Jersey living room. Their legacy continued when the family, under Dominick V. Romano’s persuasion, joined Wakefern in 1956. Today, his sons Dominick J. and David P. operate eight stores in Northwest New Jersey and RoNetco employs nearly 2,000 full and part-time associates.
Furnishing customers with safe, quality food that is delivered by a friendly and efficient staff has always been at the heart of RoNetco’s operation.
