Their Story:

In 1975, Mario Pingue Sr. established a restaurant and banquet facility in Niagara Falls that quickly developed a reputation for quality cuisine and attentive service. As the business grew, Mr. Pingue kept his personal touch by often sending his home made prosciutto to the guests. That effort resulted a steady string of comments which encouraged him to consider not only making prosciutto for his family, but so that he could serve his catering business. With a new cantina location, and growing demand Mr. Pingue then recruited two reluctant apprentices in his young sons Mario Jr. and Fernando, passing onto them the butchery and salting techniques he learned from his youth.

Today, Mario & Fernando Pingue oversee the Niagara Food Specialties production facility and the management of the full service event catering businesses. Together they are often called upon to speak about their experiences and share their expertise to student classes at George Brown College, Niagara College and Humber College.
