Our Commitment to Quality

At Marianos, we often say we won’t sell anything we wouldn’t serve at our own dinner table. This commitment to quality traces back to our founders, who believed that imported Italian ingredients should taste as authentic as if they just came from the old country.

We maintain the highest standards by vetting suppliers, controlling distribution, and testing products. Our private label line adheres to strict quality control specifications we developed to ensure safety, freshness, and taste. We reject up to 12% of produce at our warehouses for failing to meet our criteria before it reaches stores.

Commitment to Sustainability

At Marianos, we believe in cultivating a sustainable future for our communities and the planet. That’s why we’ve implemented numerous initiatives to reduce food waste and support environmental stewardship.

We partner with food rescue organizations like Food for Greater Elgin to donate excess wholesome food to those in need. Our stores also have on-site digester machines that turn spoiled produce into fertilizer we then spread in local community gardens. And we’ve worked diligently to reduce our overall food waste – through employee education, inventory management, and technologies like on-demand production for prepared foods.

We also proudly source certified sustainable, ethical proteins. Look for the responsibly raised, organic, and fair trade certifications throughout our seafood, meat and produce departments. Our buyers thoughtfully select items that align with our eco-conscious mission.

You’ll notice energy-efficient equipment throughout our stores, from our lighting to refrigeration. We invest in technology that reduces energy and water usage while upholding food safety. Our new stores are LEED certified, meeting high standards for sustainability.

We also encourage eco-friendly shopping through our robust recycling programs, reusable bag incentives, and more. When you shop at Marianos, you can feel good about supporting a business that gives back to the Earth. Learn more about our efforts by picking up our sustainability brochure next visit!

Giving Back to the Community

Marianos was founded right here in Illinois, so giving back to communities across the state is incredibly important to us. We’re proud to support local organizations and nonprofits through fundraising rounds at our registers along with food and monetary donations. Our stores also host community events, partner with schools, and work closely with hunger relief efforts.

We aim to be a neighborhood gathering place – which is why we offer indoor and outdoor seating for enjoying a coffee, a meal from our eatery, or just taking a shopping break. We want our stores to be welcoming places where the community comes together. After all, it’s our communities that allow us to continue thriving.

When you shop with us, know that you’re supporting a business that prioritizes people over profits. We work hard to take care of our employees, suppliers, customers and neighborhoods. And we’re so grateful to get to serve you!
