Mulberry Street Italian Food Center is proudly owned & operated by the Colasurdo family for 50 years. It all started in March of 1973 when Michael Colasurdo, Sr. opened A & M (Ann and Michael) Meat Market in Jersey City, NJ with his wife, Ann. In October of 1974 when the opportunity to move the business to Brick, NJ presented itself Michael Sr jumped at the chance to be closer to home so he could spend more time with his budding family.
In April of 1985 we moved to our current home on Brick Boulevard and changed our name to Mulberry Street Italian Food Center, which better reflects our growing offering of Italian imports & our homemade family recipes. Shortly after, sons, Michael and Ralph joined him in the store.
Today, we represent two brothers working side-by-side, who are delighted to share in our Italian family’s wonderful tradition and legacy.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
– Michael Colasurdo, Jr. & Ralph Colasurdo
