Family-Owned Since 1946
Orlando “Skip” Leonardo opened the first Skip’s in 1946. Even today, shoppers remember he was known for including a half-pound of butter with their purchase. To meet the needs of the growing city, Skip’s meat market went on to expand.
In 1979, Joe DiPasquale and Paul DeCaro bought the Ridge Road location. It has remained in their family’s hands ever since. Today, Skip’s on the Ridge is owned by Alan DiPasquale and Cindy DiCarlo, who have been running the store for over 25 years.
