Owner, Talluto Retail Operations
In the early 1980s, Rick DeMatteo crossed paths with Joseph A.M. Talluto. At that time, Tallutos original store had been established and Joe was looking to expand by opening other retail locations in the greater Philadelphia area.
Rick's knowledge and experience in retail made him a valuable asset and Joe immediately knew that together they could develop the family of Talluto brand retail stores. Through the years, Rick built and shaped the core members of our team. His genuine character and leadership skills allowed him to flourish and breed a great group of individuals many of who help to operate the three retail stores today.
