25,000 square foot facility to serve as central hub for catering operations for leading Capital Region hospitality company
Mazzone announces donation to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York
Clifton Park, NY, January 28, 2015 — Mazzone Hospitality, the leading caterer and restaurateur in the greater Capital Region, today unveiled its new corporate headquarters at 743 Pierce Road in Clifton Park, NY. The new, 25,000 square foot facility represents a $2.5 million investment and will for the first time consolidate the organization’s catering operations, administrative offices and warehouse in the same building.
Approximately 50 employees will work at the headquarters, including 20 new associates who were added to support Mazzone Hospitality’s growing portfolio.
Officials from the community joined representatives from Mazzone Hospitality to tour the new facility, which features a state-of-the-art, 2,000 square foot show kitchen. The high-end kitchen will be used for cooking demonstrations, classes and small private functions.
The new headquarters houses a catering kitchen, which will be used to prepare food for up to 300 events each year, as well as a dedicated bakery for wedding cakes, desserts and pastries. Additionally, the building includes a 10,000 square foot catering storage warehouse.
“Our new headquarters is the culmination of decades of hard work, strategic growth and sustained culinary excellence. I am incredibly proud of our entire team and this would not have been possible without the commitment they demonstrate each day,” said Angelo Mazzone, Owner of Mazzone Hospitality. “The new facility allows us to become even more efficient and cohesive by centralizing our operations. We look forward to continuing to create memorable special events out of our new home base.”
During the unveiling, Mazzone Hospitality announced a $5,800 donation to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, which was the result of a recent company-wide charitable initiative. For each dessert sold at Mazzone Hospitality restaurants during December 2014, partial proceeds were donated to the food bank, with a matching contribution from Mazzone. Guests also contributed to the campaign via collection canisters and food donation bins, and Mazzone Hospitality staff volunteered at the food bank throughout the month.
“Angelo and the Mazzone Hospitality team have always been great community partners and we are thankful for their generosity,” said Mark Quandt, Executive Director of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. “While his business is based on feeding guests, Angelo recognizes that there are many individuals in our community who struggle with hunger on a daily basis. This donation and their volunteer efforts are instrumental in our mission to fight hunger.”
