Emilio Micucci, known as Leo, grew up in Berlin, New Hampshire. He started a small, Italian food business with delivery service from his childhood home. Later on he moved to Portland, Maine, where he purchased a building on India Street to use as a warehouse. Both old and new customers became aware of the new location, and began purchasing food they could easily handle without waiting for a delivery. The front of the building evolved into a retail store. Leo was able to accommodate walk-ins while continuing his delivery service with his van.
He later met his future wife, Iris, “Dottie,” and in time she handled the storefront. When her son, Bruce, was just a teenager he became part of the team. Over time, the couple had more children together.
Their son Leo (named after his father) began working at the business. He developed into a successful salesman, and eventually outgrew the space on India Street. A much larger warehouse on Riverside Street was built with the help of John and Bruce. Leo continued to grow the company with his unique ability to buy the best quality food products at affordable prices.
Leo’s father passed away before the grand opening of the warehouse, however, his inspiration lives- on.
Micucci Wholesale Foods has been a separate entity from the Micucci Grocery Store for several years.
Today, the Wholesale Business has over 25 dedicated and hard-working employees, and a fleet of 14 trucks. Bruce has since parted ways with the business. Leo notes that his wife, Deb, works with him behind-the-scenes. Leo, president and CEO of the company, is also a proud member of the Bellissimo Foods Buying-Group.
