After losing everything to an unforgettable fire, one family-owned business is officially opening their brand-new location.

It's the moment we've all been waiting for. Mazzaferro Meats & Deli has finally opened their new store doors in Rome. This comes just over a year since a fire completely destroyed their original building.

They've rebuilt at 7824 Ridge Mills Road and are inviting everyone back once again.

We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for helping us through the most challenging year we have ever experienced... When we reopened mill street after the fire, we never imagined the reception we would receive in our old neighborhood. Our grandmother would be so proud.

A Year Like No Other

When the fire engulfed their original building in late April 2022, it left the entire community speechless. With over 100 years of service, Mazzaferro Meats & Deli was (and still is) a staple in Central New York. Thousands came out to show their support, doing so through donations or continued business.

After the fire, Mazzaferro's opened a storefront at their smaller shop on Railroad Street in Rome. There was still strong support, even though traffic wasn't anything like their old home.

But if you've ever met the Mazzaferro family, you'd know they don't go down without a fight.

Rising from the Ashes

They've rebuilt the market to be bigger and better than ever before. It includes state-of-the-art equipment, a huge kitchen (doubled in size), an outdoor smoker and seating for everyone to enjoy. Shipments in-and-out have also been made easier with a walk-through freezer.

As for their Railroad Road store, it is TEMPORARILY closed for the time being. There's no word on if it'll close permanently.

Check out their new location today and support a family who deserves it.

Their "friendly sign war" has been going back-and-forth since 2021, and here are some of the highlights.
