We love a good story, so for those of you who don’t know it, we thought we’d tell you ours:
Frank Isernio was born to Italian immigrants who settled in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. With a father who grew the family’s vegetables and a mother who took immense pride in her traditional Italian cooking, Frank grew up with strong work ethic and a sincere appreciation for fresh ingredients, uncompromising quality, and his cultural roots.
Frank began making sausage as a hobby, using his mother’s time-tested recipe as inspiration. Few authentic Italian sausages were available commercially in the area, so eventually he was convinced to begin selling his sausages to local restaurants. It started as a part-time venture alongside his full-time job as a pipefitter, but the quality of Isernio’s sausages spoke for itself and it bloomed into a full-scale commercial operation.
As the product line grew and distribution expanded, it became necessary to relocate production to a facility with expanded capacity. Committed to staying local where the Isernio’s roots ran deep, the company moved into a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Kent, WA in 2012.
Isernio’s is a local company that has received both national and international recognition for its quality, innovation, and authenticity. So the next time you’re looking for high-quality fresh sausage for your traditional (and not-so-traditional) dishes, look no further than your own backyard! Isernio’s brings you the best of Italy straight from the Pacific Northwest. We’re proud to be your neighbor!
