1902: Maglio Companies begin when Giacomo Maglio travels door to door in Chicago with a pushcart overflowing with the best of the day’s offerings from the market.

1940s: Giacomo’s son Frank opens a retail market in Milwaukee and uses it as a base to establish a wholesale route. After World War II, Frank’s two sons enter the business and expand both the wholesale and retail trades.

1947: Frank and one of his sons, Jack, open a full service retail grocery store on Milwaukee’s south side. The other
son, Sam, opens a warehouse on “Commission Row.”

enterprise for the family.

1982: Both sons retire and Sam J. Maglio, Jr. (the great grandson) becomes the fourth generation to operate the business.
