Sardilli Produce actually started as a fruit stand on Queen Street in Southington, CT in 1955 by Guido Sardilli. By 1975, his son, Don Sardilli, started wholesaling produce out of the back of the fruit stand, eventually calling it Sardilli Fruit and Produce. They now operate as Sardilli Produce & Dairy out of a 30,000 square-foot facility on Locust Street in Hartford, CT. They look to move into a renovated 225,000 square-foot facility in Windsor, CT in 2020. The new state-of-the-art location will handle their needs for distribution, office space and value added produce manufacturing.
