Episode 50: Sauce Supremacy with Craft Cannery

For this week’s podcast, Steve sits down with Paul Guglielmo, owner of Craft Cannery and Founder of Guglielmo Sauce.

Paul Guglielmo founded his small business, based in the Greater Rochester region, called Guglielmo Sauce, a line of 15+ marinara sauces. He started Guglielmo with 20 cases of Marinara Sauce in the summer of 2014 and today, the product is available in over 500 stores, including Wegmans, Tops, and Whole Foods, and hundreds of locally owned small businesses across the Northeast.

In April 2020, he purchased Permac, known as Craft Cannery today, and increased production by 100 percent in the first year of owning, managing, and operating the factory. In his first year, the facility went from a 3-person team to a 10-person team within six months.

He is a Rochester Business Journal Forty Under 40 award winner, serves on the Board of Directors for Rochester Rotary and Big Brothers Big Sisters, and is heavily involved and active in the community.

Paul grew up in Northeast Ohio and lives in Brighton, NY with his wife Ryann and their son Leo.
