Immersed in rich history and Italian culture, our leaders have helped grow and steer Palermo Villa, Inc. into the company it is today. Palermo’s adheres to a philanthropic, family-focused philosophy that radiates through every one of our employees every day.

GIACOMO FALLUCCA

GIACOMO FALLUCCA

Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer

Giacomo took over the leadership of Palermo’s from his father – the one and only “Papa Palermo” – after literally growing up in the business. He believes in surrounding himself with great people and is fond of saying that Palermo’s is as much in the people business as in the Pizza business. One of Giacomo’s greatest sources of satisfaction is mentoring and inspiring the next generation of leaders.

ANGELO FALLUCCA

ANGELO FALLUCCA

PRESIDENT

Angelo also grew up in the family business and now puts his experience in production, maintenance and procurement to work to guide our company. His servant leadership ensures that we deliver a Great Pizza Experience – not only our company mission, but also Angelo’s personal mission. He can often be seen on the production floor or in other areas of the business, a reminder of the early years of the company that 50+ years later pays tribute to his parents’ legacy.

NICK FALLUCCA
