In 1993, Robert DiRusso, grandson of Adeline DiRusso and nephew of Augie DiRusso, assumes ownership of the company.
Robert started working for his grandparents, Adeline and Achille DiRusso, at the Canfield Fair when he was twelve years old and by 1993 is operating DiRusso’s concession stands at over 30 events including 10 trailers at the Canfield Fair.
The Company is successful in implementing a series of new U.S.D.A. regulations including Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HAACP) and in introducing new retail products and packaging which significantly increases sales to grocery and club stores.
Starting in 2003, a series of expansion projects substantially increases production, cooler, freezer, loading docks and dry storage capacity.
