About Maschio's



Maschio's Food Services, based in Northern New Jersey, was started by Frank Maschio in 1992 with just one district. We have now grown to over 150 school districts including both public and private.

Frank grew up in the restaurant business. His family owned a renowned Italian restaurant in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. He has proven that the small, personal approach to food service management is popular and desirable. Maintaining client relations and rapport is of high priority with the company. He has a pure love of the food business and incorporates a successful catering business as part of Maschio's Food Services. As a result of his expertise with food, Frank takes great pride in the food purchasing aspect of the company. He strives to maintain a high standard in all purchasing decisions and yet provide the school districts with whatever financial goals they wish to achieve along with incorporating nutrition awareness.

Maschio's Food Services is also dedicated to working with and lending its services to charities and organizations within the state. Homeless shelters, YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs and Senior Citizens groups are just some of the organizations to which Maschio's has provided services.

Our goal is to serve each district with conscientious, personal management based on your specific goals and objectives while bringing heightened customer satisfaction, increased program participation, sound financial responsibility and nutrition integrity to your school food service program.
