Al DiPasquale and Cindy DeCarlo, owners of Skip’s on the Ridge, take pride in offering only the best quality meat to Rochester, NY. You’ll see Cindy out front, making sure all customers have a satisfying experience at the market. Al is backstage, making sure each meat is cut correctly.
As a family owned business for over 25 years, Skip’s on the Ridge was built on the importance of fresh, high quality meat, a knowledgeable staff, and great product value.
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.
