'03 Ends Strong for DiCarlo; Sales Reach $115 Million

HOLTSVILLE, NY - DiCarlo Distributors, Inc., one of the largest family-owned distributors in the metropolitan New York City region, rang up more sales last year compared with the previous one, with healthcare and chain accounts across its territory driving business, according to Vincent DiCarlo Jr., vice-president of purchasing and marketing.

DiCarlo said sales were up some 4-5%, reaching $115 million last year compared with $110.5 million in 2002. Furthermore, he noted, growing produce sales opened doors to additional chain business.

"We look forward to additional growth in 2004. We expect to put on 8-10% more business in the first half of the year," DiCarlo said, adding that the company's sales reps report optimism among their operator-customers.
