Born in Forino, Italy, Aniello Violante Sr. came to the United States at the age of 18 with a vision, a trade and a plan. He learned the art of being a butcher in Italy from his father, Antonio. After ten years of working for another local butcher in the United States, Aniello Sr. opened Violante's Meat Market in October 1969 on Hoffman Boulevard in East Orange, New Jersey.
In the Spring of 1978, Aniello Sr. moved the store to 126 Bloomfield Avenue, Bloomfield, New Jersey. Aniello has made his trade and the art he was taught into a career not only for himself, but also for his son Aniello Jr.
