We’re kicking off the back to school season with this great article from the Herald Dispatch that shows how our ovens are being used to bring the “Italian experience to campus.” According to co-owner Jordan Hagy, “We wanted the La Famiglia Express to be a kind of a taste of what we do at our 6th Avenue restaurant. It gives the kids the chance to sample the different flavors of Italy and what we do in regards to the fire-baked pizzas, the fresh-baked pastas, and imported meats and cheeses. We wanted to model this place after the Italian Autogrills and the Italian quick-service pizza places.” A Marra Forni oven is now on prominent display in the food court at Marshall University.

We truly appreciate the Total Food Service’s article detailing our founders’ American dream. They stated “In what is truly the making of a movie script, the Marra brothers are writing what may someday hit the big screen. Francesco and Enzo Marra came to the US with nothing more than a dream and a commitment to hard work.” In addition to mentions in U.S. media, last year we were honored by being profiled on the national Italian network RAI in an interview and profile right inside our Maryland home base. Watch the video here.
