Springfield Pasta opened its doors in Springfield in 1965 and has been dishing up freshly made pasta ever since.
Gene's Salon and Springfield Pasta are the two oldest businesses on Saxer Avenue.
"Lots of area businesses have come and gone, but we are still here," said Robert Napoletano.
It All Began In Italy
The Napoletano family opened a small store in Abruzzi, Italy in the 1930s selling homemade pasta.
The family moved to Argentina in the late 1950s and opened another shop with handmade pasta in the business district of Buenos Aires. In 1965, the majority of the family moved to Springfield and started the Springfield Pasta brand.
Pasta and Springfield, a Family Tradition
Robert Napoletano, the business manager and grandson of the company's founder, grew up in Springfield and graduated from Springfield High School.
"Family is the most important thing," said Napoletano. "Springfield is also a great place to grow up and raise a family. I have many great memories. It's why I'm still here."
Napoletano's father and uncle still come to work each day at 6:30 a.m. His uncle, who moved with the family from Argentina, also graduated from Springfield High School.
The Flavors of Italy in Delco and New York City
The Napoletano family makes specialty pastas and sauces with recipes that have been in their family for generations. All their products are all natural with no preservatives or artificial ingredients.
The Ritz Carlton in New York, Central Park offers Springfield Pasta dry products at their exclusive BLT Market.
Fresh Pasta Delivered To Your Door
If you are short on time, Springfield Pasta can be ordered online and delivered to your door.
Fresh pasta and sauces are made daily and available in their store on Saxer Avenue, six days a week. Party trays are made to order 24 hours in advance.
"We offer microwaveable meals which are a great option for those who want a fresh, healthy dinner, but don't always have the time to cook," said Napoletano.
