Carmela is the original maker of Tomat Mozzorell at Ragonese Imports, she has been with Vinny and John since the beginning (literally, she's their mother). She used to clean the judge’s chambers down at the Court of Appeals, wake up at 4:30 in the morning to get to her day job, then come in at 9:30 am to work at Ragonese, in the beginning it was her and her husband cooking until John and Vinny eventually took it over and now you probably recognize her as one of the regulars running the register. One day they had someone come in early in the morning during a snowstorm and request Tomat Mozzorell and she made it on the spot for them, ever since she makes it in the morning as a part of her routine. Carmela hasn’t been coming into the store because of Covid, but they hope she can gradually start coming in soon, she misses working with her family.

Next up! Our beloved Italian deli and grocery Ragonese Imports!!! A lot of people don't know about their high quality Italian Bindi Dessert USA desserts in their freezer at the front of the store. Looking for an after dinner sweet treat or something to enjoy during a weekend movie? Look no further!!!! 🍊🍋🥮🍪☕️
Recognize these guys?! Anyone who frequents Ragonese Imports always loves being greeted by owners (and brothers) Vinny and John!
We got to learn a little more about the story of how Ragonese got started. John and Vinny opened shop on May 2nd, 1986. They grew up a block away on West Erie, had lived there since 1974, they went to School 19, Albany High, etc. Opening up Ragonese was a complete fluke for them, they weren’t looking to start anything but somehow knew they would always be called to some sort of self-employment. The store used to be owned by another Italian family in the neighborhood that decided to go back to Sicily. Back then it was run as a convenience store. The former owner approached them to take over the store and they decided to give it a shot. In the beginning they had to rely on cashflow so had to keep the convenience store running for about a year and sell the leftover inventory. Then they shut down for a month to renovate the whole entire place. They also knew if their business failed they could always pivot to rent the building after they did the renovations. At first, they thought they would run it for 5-10 years and then maybe get a “regular” job, but 34 years later here they are, “plus the commute was great!” they said. John was 17 years old at the time and had to finish high school, and Vinny was 23 years old and was getting married that June so there was no lack of excitement in addition to getting their business going!
