PERRONE AND SONS LLC.

Preserving a Legacy
Perrone and Sons establishes lasting relationships with vendors and customers
to make itself indispensible to the New Orleans culinary scene. BY TIM O'CONNOR

W

hen Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in August 2005, the historic
storm wiped out much of the city and
left businesses inoperable for weeks,
even months. One of them was Perrone and Sons
LLC., a specialty food wholesaler that was without
power for a month following the storm. John Perrone III, son of owner John Perrone Jr., had to leave
college for a few semesters to help the family business recover.
Perrone and Sons took the lessons learned during
the Katrina disaster and applied them to the construction of its new distribution and production
facility in 2013. The 30,000-square-foot building
uses the same reinforced roofing as the renovated
Mercedes-Benz Superdome and onsite generators
keep the building powered during blackouts, such as

when Hurricane Isaac hit in 2012. Vice President of
Sales Rusty Perrone says the company now has confidence it can continue operating in the aftermath of
any storm. "We'll be one of the last to be turned off
if there is a hurricane," he says.
"We used Katrina as a lesson for us," he adds.
"What are the requirements for us to be up and running in the shortest amount of time?" Perrone and
Sons is one of the leading wholesalers to restaurants
and grocery stores in New Orleans. If a disaster
were to shut down the business, even temporarily, it
would not only harm Perrone and Sons' operation,
but the city's specialty grocery and gourmet restaurants. By investing in a facility that can withstand
strong winds and power outages, Perrone says the
company made a commitment to its supermarket
and restaurant customers.
