New Hyde Park, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
New York Ravioli & Pasta Company is proud to announce it will officially celebrate its 20th Anniversary on May 7, 2013 marking two decades of making exceptional ravioli and pasta products. As part of their 20th Anniversary, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company will team up with Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano to help raise funds for the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund.
In celebration of the milestone, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company will donate 20% of its May retail store sales during the days of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to support the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund. Also, each Friday in the month of May, the 20th store customer will receive a $25.00 New York Ravioli & Pasta Company gift certificate. Throughout the month, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company customers will be offered 20 deals for 20 days through their company Facebook and Twitter pages. Offers will include discounts on a range of New York Ravioli & Pasta Company’s best selling products.
The Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund was created by Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano in November 2012 to collect and organize donations and distribute them to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Priority is given to those applicants who are not entitled to reimbursement from FEMA, do not have homeowners insurance or flood insurance, and are not receiving assistance from other government relief programs. Approximately 2,200 New York residents whose homes are uninhabitable are still being housed in hotels and motels.
“Dave and I are Long Island natives and we understand the tremendous impact that Hurricane Sandy continues to still have on Long Island. The people of Long Island have been very supportive of us for the past 20 years and this is a way for us to support them,” said Paul Moncada, National Sales Manager of New York Ravioli & Pasta Company.
20 years ago, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company was born in an attic of an old Italian restaurant by Long Island natives David Creo and Paul Moncada. Both Dave and Paul would make ravioli during the day and wait on tables at night. What started with eight or nine ravioli fillings soon became fresh manicotti, stuffed shells and tortellini all made by hand. From the attic they moved their business to another part of town where they rented a small facility and began manufacturing ravioli’s for local restaurants. Before they knew it, their rented space was too small and they moved their business to a 25,000 square foot facility in Mineola, New York. There they began making 35 specialty fillings of ravioli, 14 cuts of fresh pasta, 26 tortellini and tortelloni products, gnocchi and many more custom made products for customers across the United States.
Today, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company offers retailers, foodservice operators and private label customers a line of 35 different specialty filled ravioli that come in such offerings as Wild Mushroom and Truffle, Broccoli Rabe & Mozzarella, Lobster with Squid Ink Stripes, Porcini Mushroom, Prosciutto & Provolone and Sundried Tomato & Smoked Mozzarella. In addition, New York Ravioli & Pasta Company also offers a large variety of other premium pasta items that include Jumbo Stuffed Shells, Jumbo Stuffed Manicotti, Stuffed Rigatoni, Tortellini, Tortelloni, Cavatelli, Gnocchi , 20 fresh cuts of pasta and 12 varieties of pasta sauces.
