Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Markets recently opened its eye-catching 10th location, in Norridge.

The chain’s namesake founder and his wife opened their original store in 1958 in Elmwood Park. Over the decades, the business expanded to Addison, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Hanover Park, Mount Prospect, Naperville, Orland Park and South Elgin.

The building at 4410 N. Harlem Ave. has a wavy shape designed by architect Peter Theodore, whose inspiration was the landscape of Mola Di Bari, Angelo Caputo’s hometown, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“We have spent a lot of time in Norridge, and we know it’s a great town with people who look for those imported and specialty items that we offer,” Caputo’s Marketing Manager Rossella Romana Presta says. “In addition, this location is close to the expressway, which makes it easy to get to for everyone.”

The store offers fresh produce and juices; an international deli; homemade baked goods; seafood and meats, including homemade sausage; prepared foods made with no preservatives; a variety of imported items; a coffee bar with gelato case; and hot foods, pizzas, panini and more.

The founders’ descendants continue to own and operate the chain, which is the key ingredient to its success, Romana Presta says.

“We have the values of hard work instilled in us, and we put personal touches on everything we do,” she says. “We are hands-on.”
