WEST HAVEN, July 21, 2017 — The owners of The Sasso Tile Co. of 55 Dogburn Road Extension receive a citation Thursday, July 20, from Mayor Edward M. O’Brien, second from left, marking the company’s centennial anniversary. From left, Peter Sasso, Lawrence Sasso, matriarch Rosemary Sasso, 92, Anthony Laudano, Judi Sasso and Marybeth Sasso.
Reading the citation aloud, O’Brien recognized the family’s successful venture in the tile business, saying, “Since 1917, Sasso Tile has enriched the tapestry of our community.”
For the 100-years-in-the-making celebration, the Sassos wined and dined relatives, friends and purveyors in the rear, tent-covered parking lot with a craft beer station operated by Thimble Island Brewing Co. of Branford and pizza and cupcake trucks operated by Big Green Truck of New Haven and The Cupcake Break of Vernon.
Sasso Tile, in its fourth generation, specializes in the fabrication and restoration of marble and granite and the installation of tile, slate, limestone, marble and carpeting.
The company’s showroom, just off Route 1, has thousands of tile and carpeting samples on display.
It is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
