Our story begins in 1904 when my maternal grandfather, Raffaele Raulli, came to America at the age of 17. He went from peddling pasta in the city of Los Angeles, California to building a successful pasta business. He then went on to build a thriving cookie business. My paternal grandfather, Theodore Fogliani, had the same passion to build a life for himself and his family. He ran a successful market in Laguna Beach, California for years. My maternal grandmother, Josephine Raulli, and my mother, Tina Fogliani, have ensured that the tradition of Pizzelle lives on from generation to generation.
My drive to build Fogliani Foods into the premium Pizzelle company begins with these incredible people. I am committed to ensuring that each and every bag holds the same homemade taste and quality as if Josephine herself made them.
These Pizzelle are made in America and are a celebration of all immigrants who come to this country with the hopes of not only making their lives better but making this country better. I am incredibly grateful to my grandparents and parents for the path they forged, giving me this opportunity to pursue my passion.
