Salvatore Sgroi, the owner and operator of Bella Italia Pork Store & Catering of Jackson grew up in Brooklyn and Staten Island, NY. His family came to America from Carini, Sicily in 1967.
"My dad opened his first store in 1970, J&J Meats on New Utrecht Avenue & 69th Street in Brooklyn. I was raised in this business. There I learned the art of being a butcher, making homemade sausage and fresh mozzarella. At home with my mom and grandmother, I was surrounded in Italian tradition and the love of homemade Italian food."
After leaving the New York Mercantile Exchange in 2008, with the help of his wife Theresa, Bella Italia Pork Store and Catering proudly opened its door in Jackson, NJ
in January 2009, the third store following two other family owned locations.
