Gourmet Dining is the premier food service company serving New Jersey. As New Jersey's largest privately owned regional dining service company, Gourmet Dining operates on-site food service management for educational, corporate, healthcare throughout the state.
Its chairman, Alfred Frungillo, founded Gourmet Dining in 1987. Mr. Frungillo began his career in the food service industry when he founded Frungillo Caterers in 1972. Frungillo Caterers continues to operate today and has become the largest off premise catering company in the greater metropolitan area.In 1987, Mr. Frungillo saw that his expertise in the catering field would make a dramatic impact in the food service industry. To do this, he searched for an individual with complementary skills in the wholesale and retail aspects of the food service industry.He was fortunate to make the acquaintance of Ben Aiello.At the time, Mr. Aiello was the Vice President of Aiello Food Manufacturing and the head of its food service division for retail sales. Over the past twenty five years, this startup company now exceeeds $50 MM of sales per year.
Today, Alfred and Ben continue to cultivate their dining partnerships working along side their children, Michael and Anthony Frungillo and Julie Aiello. The chemistry of this team combines a lifetime of experience in the food industry with the latest in today's modern technologies and social consciousness.
Gourmet Dining operates with all of the characteristics of a strong regional company. Our informal motto is "to deliver professional food service programs with a personal touch."
