Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Market plans to open their newest location in Orland Park in the spring of 2021.


The new Angelo Caputo’s location will occupy the current Berkot’s Super Foods at 11333 W. 159th Street.


The Caputo/Presta family, owners of Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Market, were present as the inducement agreement was unanimously approved at the November 2, 2020 meeting of the Village Board. The agreement provides the business with 50% of the sales tax generated at their store for 10 years. The Inducement Agreement also includes the Orland Park Commercial Impact Program that allows for 25% reduction on permit and related fees. The redevelopment project bringing a new, full-service grocer to the location brings with it a $7 million investment in Orland Park.


Owned and operated by the Angelo Caputo Family since 1958, Angelo Caputo's Fresh Market provides a diverse assortment of international, traditional, healthy, and organic foods. Their first store opened in 1958 in Elmwood Park, Illinois at the corner of Harlem and Wrightwood. The close-knit family now operates seven grocery stores throughout the Chicagoland area.


“We are very pleased to be in Orland Park,” said Caputo’s CEO Robertino Presta, about the plans to open their newest new store in Orland Park. “I’ve worked at the store since I was 13-years-old. My father-in-law, Angelo Caputo, is 88-years-old and is still out and about at the stores,” he explained. “For all of these years…customers keep asking if we can come out to Orland Park.”


Village staff visited the family at their Carol Stream location last week. “I’ve never had a meeting with Village officials on a Thursday and then been on the agenda on a Monday,” said Presta. “They’ve really gone above and beyond and we are excited about bringing Caputo’s to Orland Park.”


Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Market carries a private label named La Bella Romana, which translated means The Beautiful Romana in honor of the late Romana Caputo, the matriarch of the family who the Caputos describe as being a pillar of strength and their guiding force.


The family prides itself on its made-from-scratch kitchen and bakery items that are made fresh every morning. “Everything is made from scratch, no added preservatives, all natural, and of the highest quality,” said Rosella Romana Presta, a third generation Caputo’s family member. “Many of our bakery items were inspired by my grandmother, Romana Caputo. We strive to be the freshest and friendliest stores and we take pride in what we serve our customers.”


“We are thrilled to have this history-rich, family-owned business call Orland Park home to their newest location,” said Mayor Keith Pekau. “They will be right at home in the community as they join the already abundant family-owned businesses here within the Village.”


Mayor Keith Pekau and the Village Board praised Village staff for their cooperation and swift work that has resulted in the current agreement with the Caputo’s establishment.


 “This is a great addition to the Village of Orland Park,” said Pekau.  “We are proud to have the Angelo Caputo’s Fresh Market family choose Orland Park over the plethora of other available locations,” he said. “It speaks volumes about our community and our reputation that is strengthened with business success stories, even during a pandemic.”
