+ Inside DEAN & DELUCA
DEAN & DELUCA, a culinary legacy, curated with timeless flair.

The beginning of story is SoHo in New York in 1977.

In 1970s New York, amidst the vibrant and ever-changing landscape of SoHo, Giorgio DeLuca, a passionate high school teacher, pursued his deep-seated love for food. Ignoring the neighborhood's industrial backdrop, he took a leap of faith and opened a cheese specialty store in 1973.

In 1988, they relocated to the corner of Broadway and Prince Street, creating a space reminiscent of an outdoor market with a variety of shops offering vegetables, fruits, prepared foods, cheese, bakery items, and more. This is the original essence of DEAN & DELUCA that has been preserved until now.

The commencement of a 45 year culinary odyssey.

In 1977, friends Giorgio DeLuca and Joel Dean opened the first DEAN & DELUCA store, offering unique ingredients and premium food. It became a popular destination for food lovers in New York and beyond. Jack Ceglic's unique minimalist design transformed us into an iconic brand.

And so, the three entrepreneurs embarked on a journey to spread the joy of taste at DEAN & DELUCA. Offering delectable cuisine crafted with the finest ingredients has been our unwavering philosophy for the past 45 years. Today, we strives to discover the bliss of shared meals and drinks with customers all around the world.

" What I was doing always trying to find something new and that just became ingrained to what DEAN & DELUCA did.
And in that sense it was lifeblood of the business.
