Why buy from Primo?

Primo Produce has been supplying high-end restaurants, universities, hospitals, hotels, meal-kit companies and other large-scale facilities with quality produce since 1991. Founded by local restauranteur George Paxos, Primo began when George couldn’t find local produce that was good enough quality to serve at The Candlelight Inn, his very first restaurant in Bethlehem, PA. He started making overnight trips to out-of-state markets, waiting in 3 am lines to pick out the very best of the day’s ingredients. When fellow restauranteurs started asking George to pick up ingredients for them, too, Primo Produce was born.
Today, Primo is a high-demand, full-service produce supply company servicing the entire Mid-Atlantic and New England regions. And The Candlelight Inn? It has since been expanded and rebranded as blue grillhouse, and remains open to this day as one of George’s five successful Paxos Restaurants.
In the wake of COVID-19, with fresh produce in higher demand than ever, George wanted to make Primo’s produce available not just to our typical large-scale clients, but to individuals as well. We continue to source from and support the quality growers that we partner with all over the country. By doing so, we can provide individual high-quality fruits, vegetables, and proteins, and offer them at wholesale prices.
With our recently-expanded 80,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility, our SQF Food Safety Code certifications, our fleet of refrigerated delivery trucks, and dedicated team of longtime employees, Primo’s operations are ready-made to handle your orders with impeccable health & safety standards. We operate at the highest level of food safety on a daily basis, and have taken appropriate precautions to account for extra safety measures in today’s precarious climate.
At Primo Produce, our motto has always been “Quality, made personal.” That’s why the best restaurants, hotels, and schools love buying from us. With Shop Primo Produce, we want you to love buying from us, too. We’re constantly adapting, sourcing only the best products, and offering the best possible pricing straight to you; making our quality commitment more personal than ever.
