Rocco’s Cheesecake & Paper Mart
As you know, we’re celebrating 100+ years as a family-owned business and we couldn’t have done it without your support throughout the years. What are your thoughts on the importance of shopping family owned and local?
RC: Shopping local and family owned is as paramount to us as it is with our community. Most of our product is from family owned and local businesses.
How did you hear about Paper Mart, how long have you been a customer with us, and what keeps you coming back?
RC: I believe we discovered Paper Mart over 12 years ago while looking for a good package at a reasonable price.
What are your favorite Paper Mart products and why do you love them?
RC: We currently use a variety of Paper Mart pastry boxes. We love them because they look very professional and hold up extremely well.

I have known Johnny Rocco for over 12-years and he has never stopped! Johnny is one of the most energetic, personable, funny, take-care-of-business kind of gentleman. I say, gentleman, because he has a kind heart and adheres to traditional family values as well as giving his all to his friends and community.
He has a story as we all do, and if you spend just a short time with him, he might enlighten you too.
He has brought very much love and happiness in every morsel he makes and he does it with a huge outgoing smile!
We completely agree! Our exchanges with Johnny have always been full of positive energy. Thanks for sharing Randy!
