4Cousins is a story about good food, family and friends.
4Cousins is owned by Tony, Charlie and Rob Orlando and Pasquale Perri.
The Orlando and Perri families migrated to Australia in the 50’s. Setting up in Melbourne these two families supported each other living close they would always come together for family gatherings which was always around food.
The Orlando Family headed by father Joe and mum Pina opened its first fruit and grocery shop in St Kilda 1968, this was followed by another in Windsor. It was here where the brothers began to learn and understand the family business. Years later the 3 brothers opened Crisp and Green in Brighton, which was an institution for the Church Street locals. Its here were Pasquale would work in the store for 3 years while studying at University.
After 17 successful years the brothers decided to have a break from the Fruit industry, and ventured into the Deli business, although successful it was short lived as the Fruit industry kept calling.
It was late in 2006 that the Parkdale store began. A business partnership with the Brancatisano family saw the vision of developing a fresh food market in the Bayside area come to fruition. The store opened its doors with great success and was well supported by the Bayside community, who had a great appreciation for the fresh food on offer.
Although the store has gone through a few name changes due to changes in the partnership arrangement, the constant from day one has been the 3 brothers ably supported by dad Joe. Their passion and knowledge of fruit and veg has been the cornerstone of the stores success.
The last piece of the puzzle was the coming home of there cousin Pasquale into the family run business when the Brancatisano family decided to move back into the wholesale market. Although 3 brothers and 1 cousin, 4Cousins was born.
