Quality, consistency and passion

The Paisano Sausage Company story
John Laurienti started Paisano Sausage Company in Denver, Colorado in 1973. Since then, we have enjoyed bringing authentic Italian sausage and Italian food products to the public. Our sausage has become synonymous with quality.

Kathy started working in the business in 1981 as a part time salesperson. She soon found that sales were not her forte and moved into the production side of the business. Kathy carried on the family tradition after her husband's passing in 2011.

The secret to making great Italian sausage
We make it like your Great Grandma would've made it, if she had a state-of-the-art industrial sausage stuffer.

But you get what we're driving at: Our sausage recipe hasn't changed since we started in business. It's made fresh to order every day; we don't cut corners and we don't use preservatives. We use high-quality ingredients, and as much as we can, we keep it local.

We've used the same pork supplier for over 20 years. We are sticklers for quality. Because we are a small company, we maintain consistency and quality in our products. We're hands on, too; machines can't make meatballs, at least not correctly. The texture isn't right. We don't mess with the recipe for our Italian sausage. It hasn't changed since we started making it in 1973. It was, quite simply, perfect.

Supplying restaurants and other businesses
Over the years, we've supplied Denver restaurants with link and bulk sausage, as well as our handmade meatballs. Consistency and quality is what keeps our customers happy. We make it fresh every day, and deliver to dozens of restaurants in the Denver area.

In addition to making our own sausage and meatballs, we also produce sausage for several local companies. They trust us to manufacture their brats, chorizo, breakfast sausage and links with the same care with which we make our own products.
