Last weekend Mayor Gary Christenson and local officials joined three generations of owners and employees of Dom's Sausage Co., for a ceremonial ribbon cutting to celebrate its Grand-Re-opening Ceremony. For more than 85 years Dom’s has been selling their original steak tips and quality marinated meats. Over the winter, the store underwent major renovations for the first time in over 50 years and now features a new state-of-the art layout and energy-efficient design serving the same great products as well as new items, including freshly prepared meals, Italian specialty items and cheeses, and expanded beer and wine offerings.
Members of the public were invited to the family-friendly event and enjoyed free samples of Dom’s famous marinated meats and Boar’s Head products, free beer tastings from local brewer Idle Hands Craft Ales and wine tastings. Live music from local band High Tide – and even Pat the Patriot and the New England Patriots cheerleaders were in attendance and kept the kids and guests entertained.
The full-service deli, butcher, catering and wholesale food distributing company has been serving the New England region out of this location since 1975 – and has been based in Malden since 1936. “Our grandfather, Dom, started this business by making sausages out of his basement before opening a small shop down the street,” said Domenic Botticelli, Co-Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Dom’s Sausage Co. “Our family and our extended Dom’s family of employees are so proud to honor our grandparent’s legacy by reopening our doors to the community with a beautiful new space that will serve generations to come.”
“I continue to be grateful to Buddy and Nancy and the Botticelli family for continuing to provide the Malden community with quality products for more than 50 years,” said Mayor Christenson. “We also thank them for being a true community partner - always stepping up when asked.”
Never stopped serving the community
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dom’s kept its doors open to serve the community by offering curbside pick-up and delivery – keeping its more than 50 workers employed during the crisis. It also began shipping its meats nationwide directly to consumers’ doorsteps and continued to deliver its products to hundreds of local retailers across the New England region. Last year, Dom's started a partnership with the Housing Families Inc. Community Resource Hub in Malden to donate its food to help feed local families in need.
Exciting year coming up for Dom’s
The new renovation kicks off an exciting year for this small, generational family business. In addition to offering its marinated meats at hundreds of local retailers across the New England area and shipping nationwide, it is partnering with local Boston institutions to serve its original steak tips on the menu. Dom’s original steak tips are now on the menus at Encore Boston Harbor restaurants: On Deck Burger Bar and Nightshift Kitchen & Brew Pub. Dom’s products are now also sold throughout Gillette Stadium.
Local customers can visit the newly renovated store seven days a week, or visit domssausage.com to find a local retailer or order directly online.
