DeCicco & Sons announced that its ninth location will be opening in Eastchester in 2020 at 777 White Plains Road, replacing the Acme Supermarket that has recently announced its impending closure this fall.
“We believe that our focus on quality and exceptional service will resonate strongly with the Eastchester community. We look forward to meeting our neighbors and friends in our new location,” said John DeCicco Jr., CEO of DeCicco & Sons.
Eastchester will incorporate many features that have made DeCicco & Sons stores a culinary destination in the lower Hudson Valley. DeCicco & Sons is unique in the fact that many of the offerings are made daily, on-premise, by its skilled chefs and bakers.
“As a family, we have always focused on quality above everything else. The quality of our meats, poultry, seafood, and produce is a big part of what we are known for,” said Joe DeCicco Jr., the store’s Chief Purchasing Officer. The store will highlight DeCicco & Sons’ curated charcuterie and cheese, freshly rolled sushi, in-house bakery, as well as its award-winning produce and prepared meals. The team also plans to build an extensive beer retail and in-store pub, where educational events and tastings will take place.
“We are planning an extensive renovation prior to the opening in Summer 2020,” said Mike Puma, DeCicco & Sons Director of Operations. “We will be renovating the store from the floor to ceiling to bring the location up to our DeCicco & Sons environmental standards. This includes highly efficient heating, ventilation, cooling, and refrigeration systems. Nearly all of our mechanical systems will be ‘smart-enabled’ to ensure the smallest carbon footprint,” continued Puma.
“Westchester is where we work and live,” said Chris DeCicco, Vice President. “Our stores are committed to supporting the surrounding communities, with initiatives such as our PTA Rebate Programs.” Since the inception of DeCicco & Sons, the stores have collectively donated over one million dollars to local schools.
The Eastchester, New York store opening will also bring approximately 150 jobs to the area. “Our employees have a big impact on the experience in our store, as well as the product we put-out to our customers. We know that taking very good care of our employees, translates into our employees taking exceptional care of our patrons,” said Luisa DeCicco, Director of Human Resources for the family-owned chain. “These positions offer a 401k retirement plan, affordable quality health coverage, company-paid maternity and paternity leave, college scholarships, excellent opportunities for career advancement within the company, and a pay-rate that is well above our industry average.” DeCicco & Sons encourages anyone interested in applying to visit https://www.deciccoandsons.com/careers, including Acme Supermarket employees recently impacted by the store closing.
