Welcome. My name is Robert D’Elia. I am celebrating more than 30 years in the Food Service Paper Industry. My career started in 1980 in my family's business working alongside my father and brothers; that's where I established my core values and principles. One of my most important principles is to treat my customers' businesses as if they were my “own.” Whenever I can help my customers improve business in a large or small way, that’s when I get the greatest reward.
My career strategy is to be the best at providing quality products at competitive prices along with personal attention. One of my core commitments is to provide individual service to meet each customer’s specific needs. When new items hit the market, I am sure to bring them to my customers first to keep them abreast of the latest trends.
I will find or recommend whatever food packaging containers you may need, from standard to-go packaging to green food packaging and green tableware. I will gladly help with any janitorial supplies you need, from germ-killing products to eco-friendly chemicals for cleaning. I will give 110% to help source all the products you need. I am “ServSafe certified” and have many years of experience in finding the right janitorial cleaning program to meet the demanding needs of food safety and compliance.
Working with many manufacturers’ representatives in the food service industry throughout the years has helped me develop many strong relationships with the major mills and manufacturers. These relationships help my customers obtain “Tomorrow's Packaging Solutions Today.”
In 1993, I began my career with Imperial Dade. Imperial’s state of the art corporate headquarters and distribution 535,000 sq. ft. center is located in Jersey City, NJ. We have been a leader in the packaging industry for over 80 years and stocks over 20,000 items. We are one of the best and largest distributors on the East Coast. We distribute products for the most respected names in the business, such as Dart, Solo, Reynolds, Fabrical, Pactiv, Genpak, Clorox, Spartan and Ecologic solutions, just to name a few. These and other major manufacturers come to Imperial first to introduce all their new “cutting edge” products. They know Imperial is at the “forefront of technology.”
We can provide you with up-to-the-minute information on your account using our secure e-commerce web site, where you can enter orders, check order status, check your account balance and much more. Imperial’s excellent customer service department, state-of-the-art warehouse, and fleet of over 100 trucks delivering to the New York Tri-State area daily provide that “right on time” service our customers have come to expect. Imperial ships nationwide, so if your company has multiple locations across the country, we can meet your needs.
Finding the right food packaging containers can lead to greater sales and larger profits, so creativity is a must. I will work with you to find the “perfect package,” whether it is one of our 10,000 stock items, a “custom” package or part of our full line of green food packaging and green tableware. Whatever food packaging containers you need, I will help find them for you.
Imperial has the most complete line of “green” food packaging containers in the industry, ranging from compostable PLA cups and biodegradable cutlery to 100% recycled paper bags and re-usable totes—eco-friendly chemicals, as well. Imperial leads the way in green food packaging and is continually adding to their lines. I have personally been a key proponent in promoting the green products movement at Imperial and continually take part in expanding the green food packaging and green chemical products categories.
Custom packaging strengthens your image and promotes “your brand.” Custom traditional or green packaging bears your logo in a visible place. It turns your food packaging containers into instant high-impact advertising.
We all know how important promoting your brand is; let’s work together to make your brand a household name. Call me to discuss custom food packaging containers for your NYC-based restaurant or for any food service operation in the New York Tri-State area.
