In 1975, our parents Camillo and Judy Rozzi started Rozzi’s Market, a neighborhood grocery store in Kokomo. They later added catering to their services when a customer asked them to cater his daughter’s wedding. From those simple deli trays and salads, our business has grown into a full service catering company that still remains family run. Our siblings and in-laws help in all aspects of our business from IT support, to baking wedding cakes, to book keeping. Now, the next generation of Rozzi’s is stepping in, from leading events and making our famous lasagna and artichoke dip all the way to offering us some much needed comedic relief! Our family has expanded to include our amazing staff! We are truly blessed to a staff committed to our company and customers. They are the best!
Favorite Food: Caprese skewers and Pork Marsala; love ethnic food and small mom and pop restaurants are the best!
Favorite Part of My Job: The variety of creative ideas you get to see and dream up. I love when a client’s shoulders drop because their stress is relieved.
My Line Up in the Family: #2 of 7 (Boy, do I act like the oldest though!)
Favorite Patron Saint: St. Jose Maria Escriva; St. Jude and of course Mary. I have lots of others but I narrowed it down.
I love the joy and comfort people experience when they gather together around food. In some small way, I can serve God and his people by dishing up tasty food with attentive service thus allowing our guests to have wonderful, stress-free events.
I have a great time with our clients. I love serving people which probably comes from our parents. We were brought up in the family business which started out as Rozzi’s Market and evolved into Rozzi’s Catering.
That desire to serve directed my career path. After attending Indiana State University and receiving a journalism degree, I moved to Phoenix for an adventure. The move was great and one of the best life experiences. While I was in Phoenix, I worked for the Arizona Science Center in events/public relations/marketing. After that I worked for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America in corporate sponsorship and major gift fund-raising. I loved the joy people experienced when they were part of making someone’s dreams come true.
Now I do that every day and I love it. It is an honor to be part of a special celebration whether it is a wedding, baby shower, birthday party, corporate picnic, retirement parties or even, occasionally, helping a family mourn and celebrate a life. Thank you!
