Biondi Coffee Roastery was born
in Monterotondo (Rome) in 1966,
by the work of Alberto Biondi.
Those were the fabulous Sixties,
the years of the “Italian Economic Miracle”,
that had been produced
joined a great market of commercial expansion.
The company, a small but still very reliable family business, was established in the factories where, before the advent of industry, there were fields of tulips. Because of this, during the traditional festival of this flower, for many years the company was present, often represented by Alberto Biondi, with great pride for his family.
In 1979, Biondi Coffee Roastery was acquired by Achille Salvatori who, fascinated by the possibilities of this business, embarked on this new working experience together with his brother Elvio Salvatori, currently Commercial Director and Head Salesman for Lazio and Sardinia. Today Achille Salvatori administrates old customers’ deals, an important and complex role, like rebuilding a puzzle with pieces collected during a 50 years old story.
It’s not difficult to imagine how the Sole Administrator Andrea Salvatori, Achille’s son, grew up at strict contact with the coffee business since he was a child, when he spent his summer vacations in the roastery to learn the job. After professional studies and after covering different roles in the company:
– from workman to administrative and commercial tasks
– in 2013 he became the Sole Administrator of Caffè Biondi Srl.
The long experience behind him has allowed him to understand the employees and customers; furthermore, Andrea has refined his administrative skills, thanks to the use of some marketing strategies, which have resulted in changes inside the company, motivating the team that has been managing for years the customers like bars and restaurants.
