How it began:
Mariano Turano came to America from Calabria, Italy in pursuit of his dream to provide a better life for his family. In 1962, he founded Campagna-Turano Bakery, Inc., in Chicago, Illinois. The company?s first bakery was only 1,000 square feet in size producing fresh baked Italian Hearth breads with delivery to neighboring homes. In 1967, Turano Baking Company relocated to Roosevelt Road in Berwyn, Illinois, where it has been headquartered since. After expansion of the Berwyn bakery to roughly 40,000 square feet in 1974, the company introduced automation to their processes and expanded into the retail grocery and foodservice business segments in the local Chicago marketplace. The Berwyn facility underwent an additional expansion in the 1980?s to accommodate growing demand
for their hearth-baked Italian and French varieties.
The company trades in four general markets: Local Fresh Foodservice, Frozen National Chain Foodservice, Retail Grocery including on-shelf and in-store bakery, and Food Manufacturing. Local Fresh Foodservice includes our nearly 100 fresh, Direct-Store-Delivery routes in the Chicago Metropolitan Area, delivering fresh product as far north as Appleton, Wisconsin, and east to Valparaiso, Indiana. Frozen National Chain Foodservice operations include direct sales to large national chain operations, frozencontract manufacturing for broadline foodservice distribution, and frozenprivate label manufacturing of custom items for broadline distributors.The Turano Retail Grocery segment includes Turano branded French and Italian breads, rolls, hamburger buns, sandwich breads, croutons, and garlic breads distributed by our DSD Route Salesman. In addition, Turano provides fresh and frozen products to food manufacturers who convert and further process breads and rolls into value added frozen and shelf-
stable food products. Our customers are food service operations and grocers in the Chicagoland area, as well as multi-national chain restaurants across the United States and Canada that value quality baked goods and offer the highest quality of products to their customers.
