About Us

Our History

 Our history dates back to the 1920’s when Silvio Anichini and his brothers immigrated to America from Lucca, a small town in the Tuscan region of Italy. The brothers opened a small grocery shop that soon included prime cuts of meats and high quality sausage. Anichini Brothers soon championed its competitors as the value leader in quality and service gaining its blue ribbon status.

Seizing an opportunity to expand into an emerging pizza market, Silvio and his son-in-law, Salvatore Gaddini created a sausage that was superior to its competitors in taste and quality. A generation later, Anichini Brothers continues to provide the same great-tasting sausage and top quality that has made us a Chicago favorite and the standard by which the Chicago pizza market is measured

Over the years, the company has expanded to include a wide variety of cheeses, tomatoes, flour, oil, and other pizza products. In 2008, Anichini Brothers has taken a new step toward expansion by becoming USDA certified, enabling us to share our superior knowledge of the pizza industry with the ever-expanding global market. 


 The products that have made us famous over the years are our Italian and pizza sausages.  We package our sausage in a variety of styles to fit our customers' needs - including bulk and cryovac bags.  Although our sausage tastes best when cooked fresh, we can also have it shipped frozen.  We have also worked with several customers to develop sausage recipes specific to a customer's taste.  We are willing to work with you to provide your restaurant with the finest Italian and pizza sausage possible.
