20 Aug Mini Italia
We love to highlight our partners in Eleganza Magazine, especialy when they are two amazing women like these.
Patricia and Stephany Occhiuto grew up around food and in food service. Their father is the founder and owner of Montreal’s legendary Baia dei Formaggi which opened its
doors in 1973. It was a natural evolution for the sisters to go into a facet of the family business: importing.
I spoke with Patricia, who started her career as a CPA in large accounting firms before deciding she wanted to work for herself in something similar to the type of business
she was born into.
Patricia could think of no better partner to join her in this venture. The pair decided to expand on something their father was doing on a smaller scale: importing specialty products from Italy and selling mainly to close friends. Mini Italia
opened its doors in 2001 and has been a strong contender on the food importation scene ever since.
Would you like to find out more about how Patricia and Stephany are succeeding at what they do best?
