Grab a slice of Chicago Pepperoni and Sausage Focaccia in select Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants through September 30! The fine meats come from Fontanini, a family owned and operated meat manufacturing company for over 50 years in the Chicagoland area with Italian roots.
In 1960, Oriano Fontanini had an American dream. Oriano and his wife Jennie came to Chicago, dreaming of a family business that would bring the authenticity and essence of Italy to life. Through hard work and unforgettable artisan sausage, they turned their dream into a success. Originally known as Capitol Wholesale Meats, they sold cuts of beef, pork, veal, chicken, and ground hamburger.
Their children, Gene and Joanne grew up in the family business. In the 1970’s, Gene explored the pizza business and gained knowledge in selling pizza supplies and making bulk and rope Italian sausage. They became a major pizzeria supply company in the Chicagoland area delivering to pizzerias, restaurants, and grocery stores. The company name evolved to Fontanini Italian Meats and Sausages. Their success paved the way to sell nationally specializing in a variety of Italian meats and sausages. Fontanini’s meats are founded on the words, “A Beautiful Difference.”
Gene and Joanne run Fontanini to this day, honoring the traditions and recipes of their mother and father. Someday, the Fontanini grandkids will run it.
We start with our focaccia, scratch-made with just six ingredients, topped with scratch-made sauce and cheese. Then we load it up with Fontanini’s finest. Family recipe pepperoni is thick cut with no fillers, just top grade beef and pork. The pepperonis are aged for 28 days. The sausage is 100% all-natural pork from select cuts.
Select locations will serve the Chicago Pepperoni & Sausage Focaccia at dinner only. San Diego and Arizona locations will serve it all day. Check with your local Souplantation & Sweet Tomatoes restaurant.
