Often called the “Godfather of Produce,” Ric is a staple of M. Palazola Produce. In one way or another, Ric has been involved in every aspect of our business. From taking care of a customers every need to teaching the new employee where the bananas are stored, to making sure the cuts are correct on our diced onions, there is very little he does not know about the industry. When asked about his role, he just feels lucky to have been a part of the team from the early stages of development. He is an integral part of the family who is truly irreplaceable. When he is not taking care of customers, he is rooting on the Grizzlies and the Tigers to another win. He is genuinely an all-around great person.
