CRANFORD, NJ – Perrotti’s Quality Meats, who recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, were honored with a proclamation by Mayor Thomas Hannen, Jr. during Monday’s Cranford Township Committee meeting,

Perrotti’s, located at 23 S. Union Avenue, was opened on Oct. 18, 1967 by brothers Dave and Mario Perrotti. It is considered by many to be a staple in the Cranford community, as evidenced by out-the-door lines and many loyal patrons.

“The Cranford Township Committee congratulates Mario and Dave Perrotti on the 50th anniversary of their business and their tremendous success built on extraordinary hard work and dedication to quality for their customers,” Hannen read from the proclamation.

Throughout the last 50 years, the shop has evolved from an old-world butcher shop to a full-serice market, providing catered meals, homemade tomato sauce and more.

“We have to thank the community,” Nick Perrotti, Dave’s son, said. “Word of mouth is responsible for all of what we do. We’re indebted to the people of Cranford and local communities for really being as loyal as they are. It’s quite astonishing to have as many people as we know return on a daily basis. My brother and I want to cheers the people who have helped us out and made it all possible for my family. To the next 50 years!”
