Review on Rastelli Direct FoodsArticle by Royce Reed, Business Development Executive for Rastelli Direct
Rastelli Direct is a distributorship opportunity with a negligible investment, "certainly compared to franchises," said Royce Reed, business development executive for Rastelli Direct.
Rastelli is a meat and seafood supplier that delivers food to your door. The company hires associates to deliver locally.
"Our associates have the rare and unusual opportunity to offer the world's finest restaurant-quality food products direct to consumers with no inventory, shipping, billing or collections responsibilities or expenses," Reed said. "Our associates are backed by the reputation and resources of the Rastelli Food Groups, recognized as a global leader in premium food production and distribution."
Of the 1,000 Rastelli representatives across the country, 50 of those live in the Las Vegas area.
"We have a very active distribution network in Las Vegas with prominent chefs, pro athletes and business people as associates and customers," he said. "Even Mayor Oscar Goodman has sampled our products and wrote us a rave review."
Local associates include Brian Diumenti, a former local food and beverage executive, and Napoleon McCallum, former professional football running back and Los Angeles Raiders star.
The company's corporate offices are in New Jersey and the company plans a major launch of the product in 2012.

"We basically believe that anyone can be successful with this business model, just getting the word out there and developing the skills," Reed said. "Our target market is foodies, opportunity seekers, those who are into organic foods and health foods. We offer an incredible value to our customers on all those levels."
So far the company has grown mostly through word of mouth.
"As people get involved as customers, with the excitement they have of the product, people start telling family and friends about it, and that's how we've been growing," Reed said. "Another thing we have going for us is all the food shows that are so popular on TV. Everybody wants to be an at-home chef."
In this economy, many foodies are carving out their restaurant habit from their monthly budget, he said, and Rastelli is hoping to tempt them with restaurant-quality foods they can receive right to their door at comparable grocery store prices.
"Dining in is the new dining out for a lot of our customers," Reed said. "Mainly because our prices are as competitive with grocery stores such as Whole Foods and our beef, lamb, poultry, veal, seafood and sides also are of the highest quality you can find."
The quality is what originally lured Rastelli associate Diumenti, a former food and beverage executive with MGM Resorts and president and co-owner of Nevada Culinary Consultants with Cyndi Bennett.
"We buy steaks, seafood regularly and have it delivered to our house and it's really good quality," he said. "It really surprised me how affordable and good the product is, which is the main reason why I buy it for myself."
After tasting and using the product, he researched the business model and found it to be a worthwhile small business he could do from home.
"I believed in the product," he said. "It is restaurant-quality food and it is food that is really hard to find, at least of that caliber, at the local grocery stores."
He also makes a little income from the people he's recruited, mostly friends and family that have come to his home for dinners made with the meat and seafood from Rastelli Direct.
"At first I was hesitant, but I knew the quality was there, and it is a really good product," he said.
"Once they try it they love the quality, and how it comes packaged. Everything is individually packed so you don't have to waste good food. It's really cool. You can reseal it and it's pretty easy to use."
The business side of selling Rastelli products was also a selling point.
"I get a little extra income and I don't have to do much to sell it," he said. "I have four people that signed up and I get a (return) on their sales since I brought them on. I've found it to be lucrative for me, and it is food I buy anyway. It's a pretty good deal for what you get back, and it's a good deal for the pricing compared to Omaha Steaks. It's a good half or third less than the (other food delivery companies) and about the same price you'd find at Whole Foods."
