History Tidbits

Sargento Foods, SCHRC corporate sponsor, was established in 1949 when Leonard Gentine opened a modest cheese store in a small carriage house in Plymouth, Wisconsin. He called it The Plymouth Cheese Counter. It was here that he noticed an emerging demand for Italian-style cheeses. Seeing an opportunity to provide his community with something that was missing inspired him. Leonard approached his friend and neighbor, Joe Sartori, and convinced him to partner in a new business: selling Italian-style natural cheeses to nearby stores. The two men took the “Sar” from Sartori, the “Gent” from Gentine, added an “o” to sound Italian, and the Sargento Cheese Company was born in 1953.  THANKS SARGENTO!
