WHO ARE THE PICCONE’S?

“The Piccone’s are very lucky and proud to be Far North Queenslanders, Queenslanders and Australians! The best of all!”  – Louie Piccone

The Piccone’s are a local family with strong Italian heritage and strong Italian philosophies; you look after your family, you feed your friends (a lot!) and you support your local community.

Upon settling in Edmonton, the Piccone family got to business, starting with a share in the local butchery and bakery. After the interruption of the second world war, the family’s business enterprise continued to grow and diversify with the addition of a grocery store to their successful butchery and bakery. The management of the Piccone business enterprise was handed to their son, Luigi Jnr (commonly known as Lou) in 1957. Lou is still at the helm of all decisions, but has delegated the operation of the businesses to his sons, Peter and John Piccone.

The list of Piccone businesses currently includes two Supa IGA supermarkets, two retail/shopping villages, a liquor super store, an iconic pub and a brand new, state of the art bakery at their Village in Edmonton.
